Always local. Always positive.
That’s what made Bedford Magazine a must read and a coffee table staple for the last 16 years, for families in Armonk, Bedford, Bedford Hills, Katonah, Mt. Kisco, Lewisboro, North Salem, Pound Ridge, and Waccabuc. As a writer for the magazine over the last three years, I was often recognized by people I didn’t know, who would tell me how much they liked the biographic features I was doing, confirming the magazine’s dedicated readership.
So, despite Covid, in May, I jumped at the chance to purchase the venerable publication. I have print publishing experience, and I convinced my daughter, Casey, who adds digital and social media expertise, to leave her position at a large tech company to be the magazine’s President. Casey is a Tulane Business School grad, and is the top Instagram food influencer in New Orleans @nolagourmand.
Relaunching as Bedford & New Canaan Magazine, we’ve more than doubled the direct mail distribution in our New York towns (now including 100% of Armonk as an example) and expanded our reach to include New Canaan. Being residents of Pound Ridge for 20+ years, we understand that the State border does not divide our community, and that folks from New York eat and shop in New Canaan, and visa versa. We’ve also — as we hope you’ve already noticed — more than doubled the number of pages, increased paper and cover weight and print and ink quality, and re-designed the look and feel of the magazine.
Our mission will remain the same…Always local…Always positive. We aim to keep the coveted spot on your coffee table, and hope to even increase the hour-plus each of you enjoys reading each issue. And we’ve launched bedfordnewcanaanmag.com and @bedfordnewcanaanmag to supplement the print publication and provide you with updates, highlights and bonus content and a connection to our media partners network.
We’re a luxury lifestyle publication. We will get you in to the most spectacular homes in our area. We will introduce you to our famous and notable neighbors. We will highlight the careers, charity and achievements of our residents. We will feature wholesome activities and all things ‘green’ going on in our community. We will focus on your passions, whether they be in decorating, gardening, fashion, or as equestrians, golfers, hikers, bikers, skiers, or in other pursuits. And we will explore the places where you travel, vacation and spend your weekends and summers.
Pease enjoy the read, and take a look at our website and Instagram.
