Beginning in 1925, the magazine hit the streets with sophisticated humor and gripping short stories from some of the 20th centuries most influential writers. Social, political and economic hot topics, The New Yorker’s bread and butter, were discoursed through serious fiction, essays, and journalism. Much of their non-fiction content featured diverse topics and was regularly regarded for its “feuilleton” style.
A stand-out feature for the New Yorker is often their illustrations. Usually coming in the form of gag cartoons, the magazine is known for satirizing political and social undertones in one fell swoop. The New Yorker, since its inception, has had a long line-up of important American cartoonists who have captured current events in a wholly unique way.
Another popular feature within every issue includes the New Yorker’s crossword puzzles. If you are looking to exercise your brain and use your critical thinking muscles, you will find a good challenge with the New Yorker’s puzzles.
Featured in films, nonfiction & fiction alike, The New Yorker’s influence goes beyond the streets and magazine racks. In times of great strife, the magazine has regularly procured Top 10 magazine cover awards of the year. This is coupled with the work of many important American journalists and editors who delivered on groundbreaking stories, current events, political campaigns and much more. The magazine is a multi-count recipient of more National Magazine Awards than any other magazine due to its ground-breaking reporting, creative satire, and authoritative analysis.
