Whether you're a homesick Harvard undergrad or an Irish transplant missing the Emerald Isle, you can count
on finding a newspaper or magazine filled with hometown happenings at Harvard Square's Out of Town News.
Since it's located in the dead center of the Square, you may have to dodge skateboarding teens and tune out
the sounds of street musicians as you browse the racks, but the selection of titles is unparalleled. The
store stocks more than 150 newspapers, more than half of them foreign, as well as thousands of magazines.
Boston professionals jonesin' for a news fix can get their fill at Copley Square News, an outdoor stand
situated in the shade of the Boston Public Library. The academic atmosphere alone will have you copping a
French accent and picking up a copy of Le Monde. Look through the stacks of newspapers and magazines from
around the globe and you can almost feel the culture soaking through your skin. Then hurry down the street
to the Armani Café while you still have the worldly vibe going on.
