The New Yorker has been synonymous with wit, sophistication, and urbanity for more than 100 years. It's got fiction. It's got poetry. It's got great investigative articles. It's even got cartoons. How can anyone possibly resist?

The New Yorker: The Greatest City, The Greatest Mag

Well, for awhile, quite a few. During the '80s and '90s for instance, everybody always liked to say that they read The New Yorker, but it turns out that not a lot of them were actually buying it. Circulation numbers had fallen, and though the magazine always maintained its prestige, it simply wasn't selling like it once was. Ah, but that was then.

Deservedly, circulation is back up across the country for America's most urbane magazine. Meaning that more than ever, folks are reading the articles and fiction pieces that continue to garner The New Yorker with the highest accolades in the industry. In 2005 alone, The New Yorker walked away from the National Magazine Awards with five statues for journalistic excellence, making her the most honored general news magazine in the organization's history.

Every month, The New Yorker features succinct film, literature, music and even, yes, television reviews. It provides in-depth analysis by leaders in journalism on the most important issues of the day. It delivers the finest fiction found on the planet. And when it all gets a bit much, it places a deftly thought, and of course, drawn cartoon right in the middle of the piece, reminding perhaps both themselves and their readers that a little well placed humor is always appropriate.
