This week, New York Magazine‘s fifth annual “Yesteryear” issue will be hitting newsstands. Coinciding with the cover story “A Century of Pop Music in New York” told through 100 years, 100 songs and 100 nights, New York has enlisted music heavyweights such as The Notorious B.I.G., Bob Dylan and Frank Sinatra to don its eight alternative covers.
