Nantucket Town

The Hub


31 Main St. ,
United States,

This downtown newsstand has been a popular spot in Nantucket for many years. Although mainly a place to pick up a newspaper (mailboxes inside were once used to reserve papers for locals), the store also sells sundries, magazines, and gifts. In 2000 the now infamous “soot incident” covered the store in black smoke and grease; The Hub's presence was greatly missed in the few months it was closed for clean-up, reminding island residents of what a “hub” it truly is.
