Boulevard (formerly known as The Boulevard) is a Long Island/New York City regional variety magazine owned by Anton Media Group. Founded in 1985, it was well received as a bi-monthly newspaper inserted into selected weekly newspapers in and around Long Island's Gold Coast. The glossy magazine was relaunched in 2016 after a 5-year hiatus as a quarterly publication.

History[edit]

The magazine began as a newspaper featuring mostly charity events, minor celebrity stories and special features that catered to the North Shore communities, commonly referred to the "Gold Coast". Boulevard expanded to cover both Nassau and Suffolk counties including The Hamptons. The latest incarnation of Boulevard covers topics of national interest.

Newspaper to magazine[edit]

In October 2006, publisher and CEO Angela Susan Anton transformed Boulevard into a glossy magazine, with Dina Lohan, mother of Lindsay Lohan, featured as that the September/October issue cover subject. Patrick McMullan signed on as the magazine's lead photographer.

The magazine's first three issues contained additional sections of Travel, Design, Charity Events, Celebs, The Island, Fashion, Wine & Dine and Photo Gallery. By the fourth issue, the magazine underwent slight design changes, streamlining the colors and better defining the sections. The sections changed were: Charity Events to Events, The Island to Lifestyle, Celebs to Profiles, and a Health Section was added. By October 2007, the magazine added Music, Art, Sports and Business.

Actor Joe Gannascoli, guitarist John Lilley of The Hooters, News 12 News Correspondent Gina Glickman and Q104.3 DJ Jonathan Clarke all have written for the magazine, with Clarke as a regular contributor.

As of April 2008, Boulevard was circulated via Anton Community Newspapers to 70 communities in the North Shore of Nassau County. It is distributed to over 400 locations on Long Island. Readership is about 180,000 (estimated).

In November 2016, Boulevard was circulated via Anton Media Group to the communities in their coverage area. Future issues will be available for purchase on newsstands. The publisher Angela Susan Anton appeared on the cover. New editor-in-chief Jennifer Fauci wrote a history of the publisher and the publication[1] Also included within the pages are features on The Theodore Roosevelt Museum at Old Orchard, Andrew Zimmern, Gregg Allman, Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard and Horse Rescue, La Selva mansion and owner Debra Del Vecchio's beekeeping, the Broadway show On Your Feet!, New York Fashion Week, Melissa McBride of The Walking Dead (TV series), Jacques Torres, H.

The new website offered a more streamlined look and feel as well as the ability to search articles, create events, better handling of multimedia photos and videos as well as the ability to print, pdf and email articles, as well as online advertising, Fitness Made Simple celebrity John Basedow and Q104.3 "Out of the Box" host, Jonathan Clarke, both have blogs on the website.
