Several people whom Joseph DeCristofaro, publisher and editor of Manhattan Style, named as contributors to his new magazine in a story on page 19, Sept. 29, are not involved. DeCristofaro said Wednesday that Patrick McMullan won’t be shooting for the publication; Bryan Miller had agreed to write about New York as the dining capital of the world, but suffered a hip injury and was unable to write the piece; and the magazine had held conversations with Daphne Merklin about writing a story, but an assignment never materialized. In addition, after pursuing George Plimpton heavily, he declined to write a story, but a writer at the Paris Review, Tom Moffett, wrote a piece about Plimpton’s new book, “Pet Peeves: Or Whatever Happened to Dr. Rawff?”
