The Occasions’s workplace is on a number of flooring of a constructing that stretches from fortieth to forty first Streets on Eighth Avenue close to Occasions Sq.. It’s not usually the quietest place on the planet — what do you count on, when your nearest neighbor is the Port Authority Bus Terminal? — nevertheless it’s our not-quiet place. It has an electrical energy to it, a frisson, a way of neighborhood and a way of objective. It looks like one thing greater than itself.

I like our busy newsroom, with its ergonomic desks, its glass-walled assembly rooms, its whiteboards scribbled with unusual notations, its folks bustling up and down stairways, its random items of unique furnishings no person is aware of learn how to use, its structure that snarls up your sense of course as you attempt to discover a colleague from one other division.

I miss all of that. Principally, I miss the folks I work with. I’ve skilled them as disembodied squares on my display for thus lengthy now that I’ve forgotten what it’s wish to be with them in actual life. They’re sensible, considerate, irreverent, pleasant, troublesome, good, subversive, shocking. I miss our surprising conversations within the elevators.

I miss making lunch dates within the cafeteria. I miss the buoyancy that comes if you work facet by facet with folks you like and respect. I miss the workplace.

I hope we’ll all be again there quickly.


That’s it for this briefing. Tomorrow we might be rolling out our redesigned morning publication. We hope you take pleasure in our new look!

— Natasha
