Hudson Valley Media Company, Luminary Publishing, Announces New York City Print Magazine, Upstater

Luminary Publishing, Inc. is excited to announce the launch of sales and marketing for their new print publication, Upstater, due to hit stands June 15. Targeting a downstate audience, Upstater encompasses Hudson Valley real estate, architecture and design, lifestyle and events, and arts and culture.

Kingston, NY, April 01, 2015 --( The Upstater brand was founded in April 2011. Inspired by the popular Brooklyn blog Brownstoner, is a chatty, friendly, from-one-house-lover-to-another real estate blog with some expertise thrown in. Since its start in 2011, has been acquired by Luminary Publishing, redesigned, and transformed into one of the Hudson Valley’s most well-known and beloved real estate and culture resources with audiences originating from both the Metro NYC area and the Hudson Valley.

“Upstater as a print publication is a natural extension of our mission,” says Amara Projansky, CEO and Co-Founder of Luminary Publishing. “Upstater is an elegant combination of, our flagship lifestyle publication, Chronogram, and our Hudson Valley real estate journal Upstate House. We want to bring all that these publications have to offer downstate for the metro area to embrace.”

For the first time, Luminary Publishing, a Hudson Valley based media company, will distribute Upstater exclusively downstate—providing local Hudson Valley businesses an opportunity to reach a downstate market through advertising.

“There's an intimate relationship between the Hudson Valley and New York City for people who live in either place. Their histories are intertwined,” Upstater Editor Susan Piperato explains. “There's a lot to learn about living up the river, and Upstater is a rich and accurate source of information that I'm thrilled to be part of. It's the go-to guide for where to stay, what to do, or where to live in the Hudson Valley—and everything you need to know once you're there.”

Advertising within the premier print publication is available through May 15. Interested parties can reach out to or go to to learn more.
