“Fifty-ninth Street Bridge,” by Eric Drooker via:newyorker

» Outside of New York, people are utterly dependent on cars to get anywhere at all,” Eric Drooker, the artist behind this week’s cover, “Fifty-ninth Street Bridge,” says. “No doubt the romantic lives of Americans are totally wrapped up in automobiles,” he adds. “But, as a native New Yorker, my experience has always been gloriously different. Instead of making out in the back seats of cars, I came of age making out on fire escapes, down in the subway, up on rooftops, and on bridges.”
