Brooklyn gets two new magazines: One, BKLYN, looks like something perfect for multi-culti yuppies on in Park Slope (okay, maybe that's the idea Gothamist gets from the cover, but wouldn't you?), whereas the other, NRG, seems just right for hip and politically motivated Clinton Hill and Fort Greene residents. According to the Times, the first issues of the magazines include:
BKLYN - advice to Brooklynites from the Park Slope writer Jill Eisenstadt about how to persuade Manhattan friends to cross the bridge for dinner parties (answer: give up; it can't be done), and a boyhood reminiscence by the novelist Jonathan Lethem
NRG - thprofile of Erykah Badu, soul music diva and Fort Greene resident, and an interview with City Councilman James E. Davis that took place shortly before he was fatally shot at City Hall in July
Gothamist looks forward to checking out both magazines, especially NRG which is more a grassroots effort by Fort Greene resident Gail Johnson.
