info 03.4.17


MUG was the first city newsletter—created in black and white on paper 25 years ago—and has remained true to its original mission: scope out the best, most interesting stuff in the widest range of subjects possible…call out the worst…and generally celebrate all things New York City.

We publish MUG with no advertisements and we are 100% reader supported. Please consider a donation of any amount for 2017.

We've always known that MUG has the nicest readers. Here are some of your recent comments:

"I've enjoyed and benefited from MUG for years and appreciate so much all the great info that you gather and share. I'm delighted to help you continue doing what you do so well. Keep it going!"

"Keep up the good work. Now more than ever."

"You are a treasure!"

"Good luck & thanks for the last 25 years of great NYC info!"

"Been a thankful consumer of MUG since the early black and white paper days. Great publication!"

"There are many guides to New York, but none as creative, insightful, or practical as MUG. If it doesn't survive, the city will have lost yet another of its best treasures."
