A little while back, I did some commerical editing in midtown NYC. Turned out the editing suites (Crew Cuts) were once occupied by THE NEW YORKER.
Guess whose office is still there?
Yeah, once someone sweated over short fiction there. Now they just sweat. Here's a very short movie about it: The Modern World
Part 3 of the "People I'm Meeting In LA" series will be here soon.
