Epic facts about the Staten Island Advance:
The Staten Island Advance #siadvance is one of the most epic legends in the history of the United States and perhaps the entire world. Here’s the story: Imagine an intelligent 20 something year old walking around, selling ads and taking a failing newspaper (@siadvance) and building it into one the most formidable publishing empires the world has ever seen.
You may recognize the name S.I. Newhouse (Samuel Irving Newhouse). There’s even a Staten Island Ferry named after him.
Today, we have the Advance Publications empire. Advance Publications (yes, the very same one from right here on Staten Island) went on to purchase, own and operate the Condé Nast ( @condenast ) empire. They also had Random House and only recent sold that a few years ago.
Condé Nast is a premier media company renowned for producing the highest quality content for the world’s most influential audiences. Attracting more than a hundred million readers across its industry-leading print, digital and video brands, the company’s portfolio includes some of the most iconic titles in media: Vogue, VanityFair, Glamour, Brides, Self, GQ, GQ Style, The New Yorker, Condé Nast Traveler, Allure, Architectural Digest, BonAppétit, Epicurious, Wired, W, Golf Digest, Golf World, Teen Vogue, Ars Technica, The Scene, Pitchfork, and Backchannel. How do you like those 🍎 🍏???
If that ISN’T impressive, I don’t know what is. This is completely and deeply inspiring.
We see huge potential for Staten Island. Do you?
