The New Yorker’s latest cover depicts an eerie, abandoned Grand Central Terminal
The March 30 issue of The New Yorker, out today, features a stark, disquieting illustration of an abandoned Grand Central Terminal as New York City’s residents self-isolate in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Rendered by artist Eric Drooker, the cover extends the quietly mournful tone seen elsewhere in print media in recent weeks (e.g., “‘When the World Stops’: See Time’s 6 pandemic covers”).

A related note: Ad Age headquarters happen to be a few blocks from Grand Central. Many staffers pass through the iconic train station as part of their regular daily commutes, but like most other white-collar workers, we’ve been working from home—and just produced our latest print issue entirely remotely.
