Remember the guy who was trapped alone in an elevator in NYC for an entire weekend? This week, the New Yorker has some amazing footage from the surveillance camera inside the elevator.
It’s part of a nice Nick Paumgarten piece on elevators, which are perhaps the single most important element in the lives of New Yorkers, even the poors like me who live in walkups. The lesson, of course: Never get on an elevator without food and water. And maybe a copy of War and Peace.
