  1. The NYT graphics are very cool, but much more importantly, very useful. I’ve used the Covid charts since March to track our local #’s, our extended family’s, and to review the potential places of travel.

  2. Katherine A Kranzley

    Great to see the use of graphic art put to such practical, useful applications. Helps explain our ever changing world.

  3. I’ve started a bad habit of saving the NYTimes best graphics, particularly those on the front page: “Virus Wipes Out 5 years of Economic Growth” and “U.S. Deaths Near 100,000, An Incalculable Loss”.
