''The New Yorker'' is a weekly literary, cultural, and news magazine [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin published in]] [[BigApplesauce New York City]] by print media giant Condé Nast. Since its debut on February 21, 1925, it has produced more than 4,000 issues.

The magazine has a reputation for being both liberal and painfully highbrow, and a significant portion of its content is devoted to cultural and lifestyle explorations of New York and its environs. Despite these characteristics, the magazine is read widely by non-New Yorkers, and is recognized throughout the United States as a shorthand signifier of metropolitan and urbane sensibilities.

''The New Yorker'' is also renowned for the collection of iconic covers it has produced, as well as the short fiction, essays, and one-panel cartoons that are included in every issue. Creator/CharlesAddams, Peter Arno, John Cheever, Creator/RoaldDahl, Ed Koren, Creator/AliceMunro, Creator/DorothyParker, Creator/SJPerelman, Saul Steinberg, Creator/JamesThurber, Creator/GahanWilson and E. B. White are among the more famous of the authors and artists it has employed or published over the decades.

It is also noted for its long nonfiction articles, such as John Hersey's 31,000-word piece on the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
