The City Review is a 'zine devoted to Manhattan affairs and the arts with a strong emphasis on architecture, planning, real estate, museums, books and consumer technology. The City Review is a regularly updated forum for citizens concerned about creative and constructive ways for New York to maintain, enhance and augment its legacy of urbanity and the highest achievement in the arts.
