New Yorker Department Browser

The New Yorker categorizes most of its magazine articles in "departments," and though some of these seem pretty clear (Fiction, Profiles, Comment), most are more playful and strange (He Said She Said Dept., Letter from Budapest, Onward and Upward with the Arts).

The magazine's website provides no easy way to browse all these labels, and I wanted to explore them all, so I scraped a dataset that captures each magazine article from the last ~10 years along with its author and department.

I've presented it as a tiny, not so pretty browser that lets you see some basic states and explore by section and author. But if you're interested in this, I highly recommend you take the data I gathered and make something new from it: https://github.com/alecglassford/new-yorker-sections/blob/master/new-yorker-sections.csv
