Since MUG started (on paper) in 1992, we've always put hand-crafted content first—carefully researched and reliable information on the widest range possible of subjects that we think will interest New Yorkers (as well as those who love the city from afar). 

The format may have changed but our mission never has. It's always been to scope out the city from every angle, every nook and every perspective that we can: uptown, downtown, all the boroughs, younger, older, edgy, traditional, flush, shoestring, black, white, gay, straight, mainstream, offbeat, serious, fun—all the New York Cities you can construct for yourself in any given week.

Good content takes time. We spend a lot of time trying to get the mix of stories right and even more time researching, writing and fact-checking them.

Patreon allows us to have reliable income to keep MUG going in our 26th year. And we won't have to annoy readers so often by passing the hat!

The way Patreon works is, unlike Kickstarter, supporters decide a donation they would like to make every month to MUG. Anything from $1 or more

You'll be supporting the dozens of hours of work each week, handmade content with a point of view, and the celebration of our five endlessly fascinating boroughs.


Thanks for reading this far and I hope you'll become a Patron of MUG!

That's less than one round-trip ride on the subway. And MUG is more fun than a ride on the subway, right? We can even brighten up a subway ride. So much value for a few dollars a month!

We'll build a wall! But this is a happy wall. A Patrons' Wall, an e-version of the kind you'd find in a museum. Your name on it or any name or tribute you'd like.
