Whether you’re an avid fashion reader or more interested in chopping up the glossy pages of publications for your next vision board, there’s always been something exciting about flipping through the pages of a fresh magazine. For creatives and dreamers alike, reading a magazine can feel like an escape into another world filled with inspiration. Or if you’re a Devil Wears Prada fan you may even consider magazines “A shining beacon of hope” (IYKYK). And while we’re no strangers to the wonders of digital media (Hello, The Local Girl!) we still appreciate the joys that come from having physical print in our hands.

Since phone screens have become the primary way to view news stories, flashy editorial images, and just about everything else, it’s no surprise to hear that the presence of physical prints has significantly declined over the years. Besides racks of tabloids at local drug stores or supermarkets, wide selections of magazines are now a true rarity; but there is something to be said about the magic of setting foot into a store dedicated to the art of print. So we took to the streets on a search to find some of the best selections of magazines nearest to Hoboken and Jersey City — most being just a quick PATH ride away. Read on to see which treasures we discovered locally.

Casa Magazines, also known as “magazine lovers’ Mecca” (according to the Instagram bio), has been a staple in the West Village since 1994. Its loving owner, Mohammed Ahmed has dedicated his life to magazines for nearly 30 years and has been a friendly face to customers for decades. Now under new management as of early 2024 after selling to local chain Iconic Magazines, Casa is now under new ownership but will still be open for business. With floor-to-ceiling stacks of publications, customers can grab copies of The New Yorker, W Magazine, Vogue, and The Cut, to name a few.

Nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of Washington Street is the longtime storefront of Davis Stationery, one of the only places to find magazines in Hoboken. Husband and wife duo Manoj and Bhamini Shah have owned Davis Stationery for 34 years and remain one of the only traditional news stores in the area. The Shahs spoke to us about navigating the changes in the industry but remained true to their passions of keeping both newspapers and magazines in stock. They don’t plan on ever giving up their print selection. With dozens of publications and newspapers, Davis Stationery came highly recommended to us through the Hoboken Girl Insiders Facebook Group. Besides a generous array of magazines lining the entryway, the store also offers a plethora of convenience items for daily needs including snacks, drinks, $1.50 greeting cards, stationery, and even helium balloons for last-minute party gifts. Davis Stationery is open from 6AM-10PM daily to serve the Hoboken community.
