Said the Berkeley-based artist on the New Yorker's blog: “Manhattan Island has become more and more an exclusive place for the super wealthy, or the super corporations—and a hostile place for people to live, not just for the working class, but even for the middle class. The city has become this monolithic cathedral to money.” (According to Berkeleyside, Drooker actually drew the cover about a year ago, but only now, in the face of widespread protests, was it picked up.)
