On The Avenue

Where’s Your January AVENUE?

Monday, January 7, 2019
                                        AVENUE’s debut issue, September 1976

With the silly season safely behind us, New York City enters its winter slumber. And so, too, will AVENUE—or so it might seem. The team behind Manhattan’s original society magazine will huddle behind the scenes this winter, and we won’t publish our usual January/February Palm Beach issue so we can devote ample time and thought to a thorough redesign. The decision follows the December 13 announcement of AVENUE’s sale to Charles S. Cohen’s Cohen Media Group. Cohen Media is the fifth owner of AVENUE in its 42 years of continuous publication.

During this brief transition period, avenuemagazine.com will continue to update you on parties, the powerful, pertinent news and things to do in the greatest city in the world and the places where you make to winter a verb.

“Charles S. Cohen’s range of sophisticated business and personal interests makes him uniquely qualified to appreciate and own a property like AVENUE, and his ideas for improving it are in equal parts challenging and exciting,” says Editor-in-Chief Michael Gross.  “Thanks to our distribution model and our discerning, super-affluent audience, we are uniquely positioned to thrive in an era that’s been unkind to many print publications. Charles is perfectly in tune with our vision of AVENUE as a luxury product with a very special legacy that deserves to be upheld. And his passion for it as important to us as his ability to help us chart its future course.”

In other words, it’s a new era at AVENUE. We’ll be back in print  before you know it.
