MUG Exits

Whisper of how I'm yearning
To mingle with the old time throng

George M. Cohan's lyric, from his song Give My Regards to Broadway, has been haunting me lately, since mingling with the throng is, in many ways, the essence of New York City, just as it was in 1904 when the song debuted.

I've loved producing MUG for the past 28 years, but with things being the way they are, I'm closing MUG today, with a heavy heart for the city I love. I do know, though, that the city will rise again, and I'll be cheering it along with the rest of the country.

I am truly grateful to readers, supporters, friends, and colleagues that have made this 28-year-run possible.

Thank you to Joe Holmes for allowing us all these years to run his invariably wonderful images of NYC. You can keep up with Joe at his website and his blog.

Thanks to the folks at the skint for providing so many great suggestions of free and cheap ways to enjoy the city. Sign up for their daily email here.

And thank you to the late Jason Polan, whose Every Person in New York drawings were and are an endless joy.

As for me, my new novel Arnold Falls has been getting some nice reviews, and I'm working on a second novel of further adventures in Arnold Falls.

If you'd like to keep in touch, please sign up to my mailing list.

I hope you and your loved ones are faring well. And I look forward to the time when I can say, I'll see you around.

Charlie Suisman
