Even though this map clearly shows more than half of the Genius Grant winners found themselves in either New York or California at the time they won the grant, if you adjust the numbers for population, there are more MacArthur Fellows living in the relative quietude offered by Alaska, New Mexico, and Vermont, per capita, than in the bustle of America’s biggest cities. Maybe these Geniuses are onto something.

    Fashion week swept through New York last week and left behind a swarm of runway and party photos throughout Instagram. Quartz made an interesting interactive outlining the important and popular fashion Instagram accounts.  Quartz lets you click through the more influential and under the radar Instagram accounts, but by now, the cat might be out of the bag.

  13. Madison Square Park is at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway at 23rd Street in Manhattan.  Thousands of local people and tourists pass daily through the park. It is a recurring client of Pentagram, which is located next to the Park. Every season, Pentagram designs new banners that hang around the Park. During my tenure at Pentagram, I designed the Summer and Winter banner for 2013.
