The latest cover of New York Magazine is making the rounds in the blog-o-sphere, but just in case you haven’t seen it, its an AMAZING photo showing the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York. Besides the masthead, small text “The City and the Storm” grace the cover.

And here’s the story about the photographer and what it took to get the shot.
