New Pub Goes Metro

The Next American City will draw on planners, politicians,
bankers, developers, architects and other sources to document the
changing face of America's metropolitan areas. The new consumer
magazine will publish four times a year, starting with this week's
issue, dated Feb. 5, and will examine changes like the luxury
apartments that transformed Chicago's North Side from industrial to
exclusive. It will also look at new developments cropping up in
remote suburbs and other changes in the fabric of the American city
- plus how those changes relate to a changing American and global
economy. Adam Gordon, a co-founder of the pub, will serve as
editor. Contact him at, or go to for more
