CULTURE, POLITICS, FOOD, FASHION: A NEW YORK POINT OF VIEW. With assertive reporting and sophisticated design, New York chronicles the people and events that shape the city that shapes the world.

They Voted

Exhale, America

Times CHANGE • For the sake of the country—and the business model—the New York Times evolved during the Trump years: less dispassionate, more crusading. This has sparked a raw internal debate over the paper’s mission and future.

WHO DIES • COVID took my grandfather. But it wasn’t what killed him.

THE GREAT 21ST-CENTURY TREASURE HUNT • Was there a better way to spend the past decade than on a sometimes maddening, occasionally deadly, brain-scrambling search for gold hidden somewhere in the American West?

The Poem • Forrest Fenn claimed the location of his treasure was encoded in these verses.

Following the Clues • Justin Posey tested at least 500 possible “solves” to Fenn’s treasure-hunt riddle. Here, a few favorites.

Socks! • To find the most warming socks on the market, we asked people with good taste who tend to run cold, and experts who spend a great deal of time outside in extreme climates—including an Alaskan fisherman and a blacksmith who works out of an uninsulated barn in Maine—for their favorites.

BEST BETS: SOCKS • The following socks, while all incredibly warm, are ordered from least to most robust.

The Polls • We spoke to the election workers who ushered in hundreds of voters to the Barclays Center.

This Floating Tiny House in East Hampton Is Inspired by a Duck Blind • Artist Scott Bluedorn built it out of found materials: local kelp, a kids’ jungle gym.

The Great 2020 Bakery Boom • House-milled sourdough loaves, Vietnamese butter cookies, baguettes on demand: The pandemic has spawned a hunger for comfort and a flood of scrappy start-ups to satisfy it.

OUR DAILY BREAD • A basic pleasure became essential during lockdown.

HERE COMES THE FAN-FAN • A new doughnut for a post-Cronut world.

THE LONE ELEVATOR BANK • There’s only one—unusual for a building of One Fifth’s size.

One Fifth: The Downtown Co-op of All Downtown Co-ops • The Art Deco building has long been an expression of a certain type of New York–nesswhere artists who have been here for decades live alongside investment bankers, the doormen leave out cookies, and intra-building relationships and tensions play out in the lobby (and don’t get anyone who lives here started on the lobby).

Some Building Basics

The People Who Live Here • Inside six apartments.

BUILDING BLIND ITEMS • Anonymous tidbits from the residents.

Everyone Has Something to Say About the Co-op Board • As one might imagine.

Engraved Doorknobs and 60-Year-Old Silverware • Some of the residents—and the super—have become collectors of objects from the building’s early days.

How Do You Get Your Own One Fifth Apartment?

The Restaurant Downstairs • Probably cursed.

Stars in Quar

THE MOST ABSURDLY BANAL STAR MOMENTS THIS YEAR

THE GOSSIP SOURCES YOU NEED TO KNOW RIGHT NOW

Becoming Princess Diana • Season four of THE CROWN begins streaming November 15 on Netflix.

Shuggie Bain Makes It Out • First-time novelist Douglas Stuart’s unsparing account of a life not unlike his own might be the best-reviewed book you’ve not yet read in 2020.

Bringing the Beauty Out • For the photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop, the moment was always now.

The Horny and the Holy • Ariana Grande is a singer of many contrasts.

Greenpoint’s Greenest Building • The new public library cost a lot, and it may have been worth it.

Weave of Destruction • Bad Hair is a love letter written with a poison...
