If you can’t live in New York City, or even visit whenever you want, the next best thing may be this brand new periodical about NYC life. Civilization, which is co-edited by Richard Turley, Mia Kerin, and Lucas Mascetello, is a magazine in a broadsheet newspaper format, with a decidedly old-school layout and design aesthetic.
The aim of Civilization is to provide an antidote to disposable digital media, while exploring the nitty gritty realities of New York City life in the 21st century. Issue #1 features stories about the music scene, shopping, eating, drugs, terrorism, sex, shoplifting, dancing, and much more. If you can’t get a copy in person, it’s possible to buy one online.
