One of the reasons I wanted to work at a magazine is to create. To actually put concrete ideas together that really matter (or for fun). With the opportunity to put your work out into the world, you can influence and inspire. Every week New York magazine does just that. I love this week's issue especially. Articles stand alone and work together as a whole. Some of my favorites are: This Old Town, The Nuclear Family Exploded (bottom photo), The New Style Merchants, and Street Walker. Okay, I like them all.
