New York Magazine Captures Hurricane Sandy with Brilliant Cover

We were going to include the latest New York cover in our weekly Cover Battle on Thursday, but that wouldn’t have been fair, because this cover is just too good.

This picture was snapped by architecture photographer Iwan Baan, while he was sitting in a helicopter 5,000 feet about the city. He told Poynter, “It was the only way to show that New York was two cities, almost.”
