Amazon reviewers all over the country love getting New York Magazine, giving it an average of four stars:
- I've learned to trust NYMag's restaurant selections, and the reviews tend to be detailed and useful. Every week, it lists new openings or [sic] reopenings of restaurants, along with general critic's picks, which I've found very useful. – Elle "jadesong86"
- I have read stories here covered nowhere else, the writing is consistently good- quality, and the culture reporting is particularly good. – ireadabookaday
- Being a weekly, the articles are always timely, interesting and important. Not only does New York provide a sense of what is going on in NYC, it also takes on national and international issues - politics to pop culture. – Jessica S. Lander
