My favorite reason for frequenting Video 42 - they never run out of Sunday New York Times. I can come in at 8am or at 4pm, and there's always a couple left.
They also sell all manner of magazines, newspapers and publications you can think of. Plus, they rent videos. Pretty good selection at a decent price too. Candy, gum, cigarettes - your typical news stand fare. But man, I am so glad they are there. It's nice knowing I can count on a local business to always have the paper I want, to always have good service and to pretty much always be open.
So grab a cup of coffee at Bearfields up the street, head down a few blocks, grab your reading material at Video 42, and then go find a park. Enjoy!
