The New Yorker recently said farewell to its office in Times Square, and moved to a new home at 1 World Trade Center. In the magazine, Nick Paumgarten wrote of the "shrine of exotic booze," the "Cornell-box assemblage of promotional doodads," and other keepsakes that were uncovered while the magazine's staff purged and packed. On Out Loud, he joins Emily Nussbaum, the magazine's TV critic, to discuss the strange items that turned up while they sorted through their old offices, the challenges of writing at work, and the special place that offices occupy in modern culture.
