When I was a younger writer I thought “stylish prose” meant something different than what I do now. Acrobatics & verve & curlicues. So many curlicues. Now I only think abt clarity & well-applied precision. Those are the only things that matter—& are damn hard to land well.

This hurts to read it's so good.
A big group of us at @nytgraphics, @NYTMetro and @nytimesbusiness spent much of our summer trying to learn what the future holds for office buildings, and for New York City, by taking a hard look at the Empire State Building: nytimes.com/interactive/2021…
