FEATURES
New York's Greatest Hits!
New York City's greatness is never more clearly reflected than in its breathtaking, star-making, thang-shaking musical diversity. In this issue, we take the measure of the musical metropolis. Mark Jacobson supplies an opinionated rendition of the city's baseline, from the sublime Duke Ellington to the sublimely ridiculous Ramones. Now taking the stage is an abundance of new talent, from R&B diva Alicia Keyes to the queen of bhangra, a fusion of Punjabi folk music and urban beats that could only have happened here.

Attack Cult
BY DAVID CARR AND JOHN HOMANS
It's a truism: The attack on the World Trade Center changed everything. But how, exactly? A series of snapshots -- Lizzie Grubman, the New York Times, Ari Fleischer, Tony Kushner, Britney Spears -- of our culture as it adjusts to the New Gravity.

Surreal Estate
BY ALEX WILLIAMS
When New Yorkers aren't worrying about anthrax in the subways, many relax by worrying about real estate. And -- more pressure -- apartment prices have become a crucial index of the city's health. As we resist a stampede, confusion reigns.

Kabul by Subway
BY GREGORY A. MANIATIS
Who in America understands the Taliban best? New York's Afghan community. And they bring an extra measure of fear -- and hope -- to the coming struggle.
