The team behind The L Magazine has launched a new quarterly title, called Brooklyn Magazine. The New York Observer says that Brooklyn Magazine is staffed by writers for the L Magazine and several freelancers. Topics covered in the first issue include an interview with cover guy Michael Pitt and Ditmas Park’s design.
Johnny Diamond, Editor of both the L Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine tells the Observer that he thinks the cred the L has carries over to the new title. “We’re not just coming in late to the scene and exploiting the ‘international brand of Brooklyn’—an expression I find dodgy, at best.”
It’s hard, but FishbowlNY is going to withhold judgement. However, if the next cover is as annoying as this one (although, fans of The Cure must be ecstatic) we might have to lash out.
