This place, no larger than some closets, is stacked floor to ceiling with newspapers, magazines, manga, etc., from around the world, Need something in French... yup. Italian... yup. Japanese... yup. It is sad in that the City of Cambridge, which owns the property, wants to change the 'concept'. The 'planner' in charge of this treasure just doesn't get it -... 更多
