Adios, Westchester Section

Some will say that the New York Times’ decision to cease publishing the Westchester weekly section as we know it (along with the NJ, LI, and CT weeklies), is because they’re trying to convert all the suburban coverage into one Styles-esque section. Some will say it’s because ad revenue has dropped off, and they just need to cut corners and lose the freelancers.

But if you’re asking me, I say it’s because they were getting their ass handed to them by InTown magazine (and Scarsdale, Rockland, and Putnam mags). There’s only enough room in this obscenely wealthy suburb for one of us, Gray Lady.

Westchester Mag, you’re next!
