“Harvard Square Landmark”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

If you need it, they have it.
The Out of Town News is smack in the center of Harvard Square. You can find obscure magazines, newspapers, books, and sundries. And it's got to be the best place to meet up with anyone in Harvard Square... you can't miss it!

“Huge range of publications”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

It is not a particularly easy place to walk around, nor is it exactly a relaxing place to browse--but for variety, it's tough to beat. Extra points for selling postcards as well.
