Brooklyn and Queens are about to get their own alternative weekly, say James Morrow, Erin Franzman and Mike Vago. The three are preparing an August launch of New York Metropolis, which, according to the New York Post, "will run on a basic alternative weekly model of a small editorial and design team complimented by freelancers and supported by local advertisers." Morrow is executive editor of the Webzine Ironminds, where Franzman is a writer.
