This full-color glossy magazine will have a circulation of 114,610 (ABC Audited) as it gets distributed to the zip codes of the paper's highest income households, including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut via newsstand and home delivery. Dugow states, "This is an extremely exciting publishing venture for me. I am flattered by their confidence in my talent. I know this will be a very long and fruitful relationship. The New York Post is New York's must-read daily newspaper.

"Apples to Oranges will provide a powerful vehicle for South Floridians to reveal their luxurious lifestyle to New Yorkers. I intend for the content to provide a platform that shares a quality of life that is not only culturally enriching but also equally satisfying in every way that is meaningful. Having lived in New York for 20 years prior to moving to South Florida, I am positively sure of this fact," concludes Mr. Dugow.

Apples to Oranges will undoubtedly be a page-turner.

"I have worked with the magazine's Chairman, Richard Burns as well as the President & Publisher of Avenue magazine, Julie Dannenberg for over a decade," says Mr. Dugow. "The consistency of Avenue's readers to the highest net-worth individuals of Manhattan is a 'perfect fit' for the premier issue of Tropolis," boasts Dugow. "Tropolis magazine editorials reveal how truly unique South Florida living can be. Having lived in South Florida for 10 years and the prior 20 years in Manhattan, I am extremely excited to share the enormous influence New Yorkers have provided to our lifestyle. Manhattan residents are more than just 'kissing cousins' to us, they are siblings... and I'm interested in bringing this relationship to the spotlight."
