‘The L Magazine’ print edition, RIP

The L Magazine RIP
The L Magazine RIP

The L Magazine, the free weekly magazine that started in 2003, has ceased publishing its print edition. This week’s issue was its last as the editors wrote:

Weird news you may have heard already: As of today, July 15th, The L Magazine will no longer be published as a print magazine. This is neither tragic nor particularly sad nor further proof that everything is fucked. It is rather-and we realize this may seem like a line of bullshit-a decision we’ve made so that we can focus on and grow our sister publication, Brooklyn Magazine, which, starting in September, will go from being a quarterly publication to a monthly one. This is very exciting.

It’s become common to sentimentalize the Brooklyn of the very recent past; it doesn’t take much encouragement before people begin to wax nostalgic about the way things used to be before the condos went up, or this bar closed, or that chain store opened, or these people moved out, or these other people moved in. It’s an understandable tendency, this need to reflect upon a now-broken past; we do it in order to better understand our present, and to make sense of the decisions we’ll need to make to build our future.

The L, which continues as a website goes through each of its years of existence in print, highlighting notable events, albums, books, openings, and average asking price of an apartment in various neighborhoods. Northside Media Group continues to publish Brooklyn Magazine in print and run the Northside Festival, among other things. RIP, L Magazine print edition.

Already filling that void is Time Out NY, which turns 20 this year and which became a free weekly back in April.
