W42ST runs on limited resources to keep Hell’s Kitchen connected, updated and upbeat. Access is totally free. Please consider supporting what we do so that we can continue our work!

Over the course of five years, W42ST has published 63 magazines (the 64th was halted in March because of COVID-19). Each cover celebrates the creativity of an individual artist – and more than once the ingenuity of the W42ST team – as well as the evolution of the magazine. Here are the first 20 – one of which is now available to buy as a poster. The next 20 will be coming soon.
