The New Colonist is targeted at people who live in and love cities, and it "seeks to showcase some of what's good about life in our cities." Its editors believe that "the new territory for today's new colonists are our once-neglected cities, which are being remade into rich and vibrant communities by old residents and new who have rediscovered the possibilities offered by urban neighborhoods." Theme issues of the on-line magazine have included, among others:

* Carfree Cities
