New York in fifty objects

From the New York Times, a history of New York in fifty objects. No I♥NY logo, no subway token, but many welcome choices, including the Anthora and the Automat.

September 25, 2012: The Times has added fifteen more, including the subway token.

Happy Birthday!

Sad to read that the "Anthora" cup is disappearing. It is the perfect-sized cup, in my opinion, and just the right thickness of paper.

Thank you, RL.

Adair, as you may know, you can buy a ceramic version of the cup. (I’ve never been able to bring myself to do so.)

I know---I've seen them at the gift shop at Penn Station, NYC. I've been tempted, don't get me wrong, but somehow, I like things to be what they really are; a ceramic version already feels false and artsy.
