Just like other rising starlets, every year or so the face nymag.com shows to the world needs a makeover. Later this week, we’ll launch a new homepage design, and we want to give you a sneak peek. One big change to note: Daily Intel will be moving to the top-left corner of the page, so you can see our breaking news stories even more quickly. (You’ll still be able to view the whole version, as always, at the http://www.nymag.com/daily/intel. Bookmark it!) Nymag.com’s other blogs, Vulture, the Cut, and Grub Street, will also be more prominently displayed, as will video. We’ve also organized the lower half of the page more consistently, so you’ll always know where to find whichever type of news you’re looking for, and you’ll be able to search our restaurant listings, runway galleries, and product guides more easily. And we’ve made changes to the navigation bar at the top of the page — it’s simplified to highlight our main editorial areas, and we’ve added drop-down menus to give you direct access to all the key pages on the site. But you don’t have to listen to us: Click below to see what the new page will look like, and tell us what you think in the comments. Are we showing too much leg?
I’m going to spend the next year as a private citizen, but I do indeed intend to run for office again. I’m not sure for what, and I am not exactly certain when. I need to take a nap. But once I do, I’m planning to get back into the ring.
