New Yorker Archive Articles

Some good things to read from the New Yorker archive before they go back behind the paywall.

Sell Out: Part One - The New Yorker

I am not smart with words, but I work hard every day of my life. When I come on boat I have only shirt and pants. The food is not kosher and I soon begin to starve. In middle of ocean, I trade pants for tin of herring.

Swingers - The New Yorker

On a Saturday evening a few months ago, a fund-raiser was held in a downtown Manhattan yoga studio to benefit the bonobo, a species of African ape that is very similar to-but, some say, far nicer than-the chimpanzee.

The Running Novelist - The New Yorker

A long time has passed since I started running on an everyday basis. Specifically, it was the fall of 1982. I was thirty-three then. Not long before that, I was the owner of a small jazz club in Tokyo, near Sendagaya Station.

The Sixth Extinction? - The New Yorker

The town of El Valle de Antón, in central Panama, sits in the middle of a volcanic crater formed about a million years ago. The crater is almost four miles across, but when the weather is clear you can see the jagged hills that surround the town, like the walls of a ruined tower.

The Pink Panthers - The New Yorker

On May 19, 2003, a man in his late twenties walked along New Bond Street, in London, and stopped outside the flagship store of Graff, which proudly claims to sell "the most fabulous jewels in the world."

You Belong With Me - The New Yorker

One afternoon this spring, the twenty-one-year-old country pop star Taylor Swift was in the back seat of a black Escalade going up Madison Avenue, on her way to the annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum.

Netherland - The New Yorker

Samantha was sitting on a lawn chair in her parents' garage, smoking a joint, when she decided to run away. She had just graduated from high school, where she had few friends, and felt invisible.

Eight Days - The New Yorker

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 Let's don't be alarmist. The most important week in American financial history since the Great Depression began at 8 A.M. on a Friday in the middle of September last year. I have pieced together this account of it from scores of interviews with participants and observers.

Taken - The New Yorker

On a bright Thursday afternoon in 2007, Jennifer Boatright, a waitress at a Houston bar-and-grill, drove with her two young sons and her boyfriend, Ron Henderson, on U.S. 59 toward Linden, Henderson's home town, near the Texas-Louisiana border. They made the trip every April, at the first signs of spring, to walk the local wildflower trails and spend time with Henderson's father.
