New York (magazine)
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
New York is an American weekly magazine concerned with the life, culture, politics, and style of New York City. Founded by Milton Glaser and Clay Felker in 1968 as a competitor to The New Yorker, it offers less national news and more gossip, but has also published noteworthy articles on city and state politics and culture over the years. It was one of the first "lifestyle" magazines, and its format and style have been copied by other American regional city publications, such as Philadelphia, New Jersey Monthly and others, although New York is the only weekly among them and therefore contains more immediate coverage. Its 2005 paid circulation was 437,181, with 94.6% of that coming from subscriptions. The website receives visits from 1.1 million users monthly.
