February means two things: indoor weather for half the country and awards season. Unsurprisingly, New York’s readers spent a significant amount of time last month reading about what to watch, and how to make sense of what they’d just watched. Continued political dysfunction in the Trump administration also emerged as a theme, with dives into Trump’s tax cuts, the GOP’s relationship to Obama, and more. The most popular stories of February, based on the total amount of time readers spent on each, are all made possible by the breadth of coverage and compulsive readability of Intelligencer, the Cut, Vulture, Grub Street, and the Strategist. These are also the kinds of stories that you get unlimited access to as a digital subscriber of New York.
