Brooklyn Magazine was founded by Northside Media Group (brothers Scott and Daniel Stedman, the same team behind the popular free alt-weekly L Magazine). Its editor-in-chief was Mike Conklin[4] and it shared most of its staff with The L.[5] Its first issue landed in the Spring of 2011. In June 2012, Northside Media Group re-launched the magazine's website. In addition to what appeared in print, BKmag.com featured web-only content, including blogs for Food and Style and Brooklyn Abridged, a comprehensive news feed for the borough. In September 2012 the website launched a special online-only issue dedicated to Brooklyn literature to coincide with the Brooklyn Book Festival.[6] The magazine ran into financial difficulties in 2018, and ceased producing a print version. The website was not updated between February 2019 and December 2020.[7]
The magazine was rebranded and launched an overhauled website in December 2020, under new ownership and management.[8]
Brooklyn Magazine's first cover star was Boardwalk Empire's Michael Pitt.[9] Subsequent covers have featured other Brooklynites of note, such as Emily Mortimer,[10] David Cross[11] and Olivia Thirlby.[12]
