See All Brooklyn Influencers

Brooklyn is a bloggy place, but brothers Daniel and Scott Stedman boast arguably the biggest locally focused footprint of all. They’re the founders of Northside Media, the parent company of L Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine, which peddles rough luxe lifestyle journalism for the Wythe Hotel bar set. The duo is also responsible for the Brooklyn staples SummerScreen and the Northside Festival, an evolving music, tech and movie expo that’s rapidly becoming New York’s answer to South by Southwest.
