I clearly don't fit the market niche of Overflow, " a quarterly magazine geared toward the overeducated and the underutilized ... comprised of young adults" (of South Brooklyn) "who strive to break away from the stagnant ennui of extended adolescence, which New York City tends to perpetuate". The readers of the magazine, its mission statement declares, are" interested in fashion, nightlife, real estate, and other trappings of modern urban life, but they do not seek cultural validation from any outdated or oversaturated institutions". What a lofty tribe. Look in the current edition, & see what you think of South Brooklyn Slaughter, an article on some of the "bizarre and horrifying" murders that have taken place in the area over the last half dozen years. Hmm.
