A Brooklyn BrownstoneThe Brooklyn Reader is an online community news portal for the neighborhoods of Central Brooklyn, including Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights and Fort Greene/Clinton Hill (Coming spring 2014: Prospect Heights, East New York and East Flatbush).

As the area’s first, truly local news site based where you live — run for the people, by the people — The Reader offers Central Brooklyn residents block-by-block reporting, breaking news stories on crime, police and fires, and daily updates on real estate development, new business openings, arts & entertainment, resident profiles and more!

The Reader’s bloggers and columnist live, work and play right here– in your community. They bring professional insight and personal experience on everything from employment strategies, to food justice, to advice on sex, sexuality and relationships; from health and beauty to Chabad life to updates from City Hall.
