New York Observer Posts Slideshow to End All Slideshows

Like most people, your FishbowlNY editors are not fans of the slideshow. We want to see all the pictures and/or content on one page, thank you very much. But even we have to admit that The New York Observer’s slideshow of people reading The New York Observer is extremely strong work.

The title of the slideshow — Readers React: Cooling Off with the Hot Ethan Hawke Issue — doesn’t do it justice. This can never be topped. A paper publishing 19 pictures of people reading the same paper is pure genius.

In fact, the only downside to this is that the Observer might have set the bar for slideshows too high. But who among us will complain that a star shines too brightly?
