Attention Readers, Friends, and Young Friends: The New Criterion will remain closed (and e-mail and phone will be down) until power is restored to our building. The elucidation of works of art and the correction of taste, we hope, will recommence by this weekend. Until then, be sure to browse through our excellent November issue, which has just been published online. 

The New Criterion is still looking forward to seeing our Friends and Young Friends at its election night party in Tribeca. Given the timetables provided by con-ed, we believe lower Manhattan will be up and running in time for Tuesday's party. Assuming so, please indicate whether you still plan to come to the party or if your plans have changed. As mentioned, our phone and e-mail are down, so please contact me at emilyesfahanismith[at]gmail[dot]com with your update or for more information about the event.

We hope to see you Tuesday!
