News stand man back in business

ONE of Manhattan’s most famous news stands is back in business.

Jerry Delakas, who has appeared on “Sex and the City” and in TV ads, was locked out for 11 months from the Astor Place stand he has run since the 1970s.

But after a long struggle to reopen and a successful appeal to Mayor de Blasio, Delakas will be back at work again.

“This is not about winners and losers,” Delakas said outside his shuttered newsstand Monday. “It’s about Americans opening their hearts. It’s about freedom, hope and opportunity.”

Delakas, 64, had been renting the location from a husband and wife. After they died, the family’s estate tried to pass the license down to him.

But in 2011, the city told Delakas he was operating illegally and had no right to the couple’s license.
