MIAMI BEACH, Fla.–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 29, 2002–To celebrate the magazine’s first anniversary and assuming that everything related to New York had already been written about, the editors of LOFT took on the task of looking for a new, fresher version of the Big Apple. The LOFT anniversary issue dedicates 80 pages to the capital of the world.

Two of the LOFT models shoplifted, one ran wild in Central Park, and another gave a tour of a rough, yet enchanting Manhattan–the true Manhattan. The LOFT photographers got into the best restaurants- inside their kitchens- and found that everything good in New York – be it French, Italian, Chinese or Hindu – is cooked by Mexicans, something which is called “The Guey Cuisine”.

LOFT discovered that wild coyotes roam in Central Park. They found a bar where you can take your dog, a beauty parlor where you can get your hair straightened for $1,000 and have it last all year, along with 46 other reasons to love New York.

The LOFT Anniversary Issue includes a photo-documentary essay by renowned war photographer Susan Meiselas about one of the most exclusive venues of sadomasochism in the City. Inside is also an interview with Nancy Friday, one of the most famous and controversial erotic writers in the United States, married to Norman Pearlstine, editor-in-chief of Time Inc.

There is also a piece of the new building for the New York Times and an interview about the new Manhattan skyline with architect Cesar Pelli, builder of the highest towers in the world and some of the towers of the World Trade Center.

Enclosed is also an interview with general Ion Mihai Pacepa, ex-head of the Romanian intelligence service and the highest-ranking official to desert from the Soviet block, about his relationship with Ceausescu, Arafat and the KGB.

“This special issue will be one of the few publications that makes no tragic reference to the Twin Towers. It is a celebration of the City,” said Juan Rendon, Editor.

Loft is part of Zoom Media Group and is edited and produced in Miami.
