New York’s Hurricane Sandy Cover is ASME’s Magazine Cover of The Year

Unsurprisingly, New York’s “The City and The Storm” has won ASME’s 2013 Magazine Cover of The Year award.

The stunning photograph for New York’s November 12, 2012 issue was taken by Iwan Baan. He took the picture while hovering above the city in a helicopter.

New York Magazine Declares Boston a 21st Century Microcosm

Boston — or, rather, the bombings and ensuring manhunt that occurred there a week ago — captured the cover of the New Yorker, and now it’s claimed the Big Apple’s other namesake news weekly.

Ever eager to encapsulate the zeitgeist in its glossy pages, New York‘s headline declares that the 21st Century has converged on Boston.

From questionably reliable information dissemination to the self-radicalization of young men to the voluntary foregoing of freedoms for safety, it seems the grander stories of the Boston bombings make for good magazine journalism.

Jody Rosen Joins New York as Pop Critic

Jody Rosen has been named New York’s pop critic. Rosen’s work has appeared in a variety of publications, such as Entertainment Weekly and The New Yorker. He was also previously a senior critic at Rolling Stone and the music critic for Slate.

“Jody is a sharp critic and beautiful, lucid writer with broad tastes, unerring radar and a knack for finding big ideas between pop’s niches,” said Adam Moss, editor-in-chief of New York, in a statement. “We’re excited to have him.”

Rosen — who starts June 1 — is taking the pop critic spot from Nitsuh Abebe, who is now a general culture and features writer for the magazine.

Donald Trump Blasts New York in Twitter Rant

Let the record show that if you publish slightly critical commentary about Donald Trump, he will blast back on Twitter and it will be fun for everyone involved. When New York’s Daily Intelligencer posted about Trump’s appearance on David Letterman, Trump responded by firing off a series of hilarious tweets. Here they are, for our enjoyment.

A vague insult followed by an odd prediction backed by no evidence whatsoever is a great start.

New York Takes ‘All in One’ Approach to New iPad App

New York’s new iPad app — complete with a subscription option — debuts on Monday. What is worth noting is its streaming integration of NYMag.com content, combined with the magazine’s pieces, all in one place.

At the top of the app is a regularly updated feed of digital content. That feed is refreshed with about 20 of the site’s best posts and breaking news each day. That content is free to anyone who downloads the app. If you want to access the print content, you simply swipe the app and they appear. New York calls this its “window pane” feature. Print subscribers can access the magazine pieces for free, while everyone else will be prompted to purchase a digital subscription.

While all of New York’s content can be found at the magazine’s web site, the app’s updating feed feature sitting alongside everything the magazine has to offer might tempt people to step away from the laptop, and pick up their iPad.

Will Leitch Leaves New York for Full-Time Gig at USA Today Site

Will Leitch, the founding editor of Deadspin, is leaving his spot at New York to write full-time for Sports On Earth, the sports site from USA Today. Leitch has been writing for the site since it debuted in July of 2012, but in a post on his personal blog, he writes that it’s time to change things up:

My columns up to this point have been mostly media columns, but this is a more expansive role: I’m basically gonna be writing about everything, traveling all over the place, serving as the face (or one of the faces, anyway) of the site. I will also be hosting a daily podcast and will occasionally contribute for MLB.com, and certain columns will also be running in USA Today. Basically: I’m gonna be all over the place there.

Leitch adds that he’ll still be contributing to New York, just not on a full-time basis. He had been with the magazine since 2008.

NYU Local Blog Moves From New York Times to New York

NYU’s blog The Local: East Village, is moving on. The New York Times has ended its partnership with the hyperlocal site and so it has found a new home at New York magazine.

As part of the move, Nieman Journalism Lab reports that the blog will change its name to Bedford + Bowery and begin covering the LES and a few Brooklyn neighborhoods (Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick), as well as the East Village. Bedford + Bowery will also embrace larger scale angles, making it decidedly less local.

The small stories won’t completely disappear, however, because that’s one reason New York agreed to partner up. Ben Williams, editorial director of NYMag.com, said having a hyperlocal site on hand could help because those small items could turn into big ones. “A feeder is a good way to look at it, definitely,” he told Nieman.

Michael Bloomberg is an Ass Man

New York’s cover story this week — written by Jonathan Van Meter — is an in-depth look at councilwoman Christine Quinn, who will most likely be our next mayor.

There’s plenty in the piece worth reading, but one part that caught our eye was when our current head honcho, Michael Bloomberg, revealed himself as an ass man:

Later in the evening, the host interrupted me to point out that the mayor himself had just arrived. Did I want to meet him? Sure. My friend and I followed the host over, shook Bloomberg’s hand, and my friend thanked him for his position on gun control. Without even acknowledging the comment, Bloomberg gestured toward a woman in a very tight floor-length gown standing nearby and said, ‘Look at the ass on her.’

To be fair, acknowledging a nice rump is much easier than discussing the intricacies of gun control.

The Atlantic Wins Magazine Cover of The Year

The voting is over, and the winner of the first FishbowlNY Magazine Cover of The Year is The Atlantic. It was a virtual tie between New York (who we thought would win) and its cover of a post-Sandy Manhattan and The Atlantic right up until the end. However, The Atlantic ended up with 41 percent of the vote, while New York grabbed 34 percent. Those two covers pretty much blew away the competition, as the next closest was ESPN The Magazine, with 9.9 percent of the vote.

Congrats to the Atlantic, and to Darhil Crooks, the magazine’s creative director. The winning cover was the first Atlantic issue with Crooks’ imprint, and it obviously made an impact on readers.

Thanks to everyone who voted in our poll. You are all — in your own special way — the wind beneath FishbowlNY’s wings.

New York Magazine Captures Hurricane Sandy with Brilliant Cover

We were going to include the latest New York cover in our weekly Cover Battle on Thursday, but that wouldn’t have been fair, because this cover is just too good.

This picture was snapped by architecture photographer Iwan Baan, while he was sitting in a helicopter 5,000 feet about the city. He told Poynter, “It was the only way to show that New York was two cities, almost.”
