As most of the other reviews have indicated, but it bears repeating, the writers are among the most talented out there. Cons: Viewed by many who haven't even read a single one of its articles as being too high-brow and liberal. Their loss.
The articles are written well enough to be interesting regardless of content, keeps me up to date on cool things to do in NY Cons: Sometimes I find the poetry sub-par, but that's probably just personal preference
One of the best magazines out there! Long lasting appeal. Intelligent, humorous, superbly written articles. And let us not forget all the great cartoons Cons: Could be misconstrued as only for New Yorkers. I am thinking of people from other countries, etc. If they move here.
