    Mag publisher electrocuted by third rail


    A promising young magazine entrepreneur was electrocuted early yesterday while walking across the G train subway tracks from one platform to another, police said.
    The body of Patrick Elasik, 26, of Far Rockaway, was found at 1:35 a.m., lying across the third rail at the Nassau Ave. station in Greenpoint.

    Elasik was the co-founder and co-owner of Mass Appeal Magazine, a bimonthly urban lifestyle publication based in Brooklyn.

    He was on his way home from a friend's birthday party when he entered the station from the wrong side, said his longtime business partner, Adrian Moeller.

    Because changing platforms required leaving and reentering the station, he apparently decided to simply cross to the other side - but touched the electrified rail and died.

    "He ran through the tracks and got killed," Moeller said. "It was an unfortunate accident."

    Moeller and Elasik moved here from the Washington area in 1996 and opened the magazine, which chronicles graffiti art, urban music and hip fashion. The magazine has a circulation of about 100,000.

    "Things were going really great for him," Moeller said. "He had a great heart; there's not a bad bone in his body."

    An avid surfer, Elasik recently bought a house near the boardwalk in Far Rockaway, where he lived and took on the waves for years.

    "He loved New York and just enjoyed life," his father, Ronald Elasik, said in a phone interview from McLean, Va. "It's devastating, just devastating."

    Elasik's death was ruled an accidental electrocution by the medical examiner. His body will be flown today to Virginia. He was survived by his parents and a 19-year-old sister.

    At the magazine's Fort Greene, Brooklyn, office, employees mourned the sudden loss of a successful entrepreneur.

    "It's hard for everybody," Moeller said.

    I remember the first time we met... High and Sire were in my face threatining to kick my ass if i didn't take care of a couple boys in my crew... Sire and High told me that in a matter of weeks they could have everything I ever did on a freight gone over... and I was shook! All the while Jet stood around patiently and listened, probably laughing... It took a while to become friends with your crowd but then it was allways fun to bump into you... first in Portland then in Atlanta then in LA where I put on a little entertainment for Sire and Adrian by getting my ass kicked by undercovewrs and hauled off to jail, and finally in New York.... Pat you are a great guy and I will allways remember that night in LA gettin wasted and arrested, say Hi to Bore for me... My condolences to Pats family crew and friends...

    You were a character, thats for sure... Sire really did a number on the streets of DC back in the mid 90's, fucking wrecked it..

    I remember telling High once a long time ago I couldnt hang out with Pat cause he was too much of a loose cannon, then we got to kick it one night and I was like hell yeah, I like this mother fucker, cool guy..
    Last time I saw pat we did a end 2 end fr8 car in the East Bay...
