New York is its own mythology, but, like that of the American Dream, it’s broken. Yet it stays alive in the wit, ambition, resilience, and general badassery of the people who live there amid the false promises of capitalist excess and nostalgia. From our living rooms to yours, this issue looks at what’s going on in the scattered brains of the metropolis that once upon a time stole the idea of modern art from Paris, and is still where Europe most often turns when it seeks wisdom from afar. We learned from this issue that it would be great to be either a yuppie’s gay mistress or a secular adult virgin, and that we missed our chance to all be wearing bibs from Barneys.
