The Vision of LNY Magazine in 1967 was to have a Latin magazine written in English for the Latin American community of New York City.
The plan was to assemble a group of unpaid freelance writers, entertainers, community activist, family friends and those who had a strong
conviction and involvement in the community to help launch a magazine geared for the Latin community of New York City.
It was a monumental task,
a total commitment of volunteers who had a strong belief in the success of the magazine. Unfortunately due to lack of finances and corporate advertising
the magazine was an overwhelming success for our readers for the short time that it was in existence.
LATIN NY Magazine
pioneered the way Latin Magazines are written today.
