Browse Every Issue of New York from 1968 through 2005

Here’s something that will surely get you fired: Every issue of New York magazine, from 1968 through 2005, is available at your fingertips. This is all thanks to Cover Browser, a site dedicated to cataloging comic books, magazines and DVD covers.

We suggest passing the rest of the day by reading articles by Gloria Steinem or laughing at cover features on cross-country skiing (“cross-country skiing is great for not-so-great skiers!”) and 1992′s “new bohemia,” Williamsburg.

Just don’t tell your boss we said anything. We don’t need (more) angry emails.
