Brooklyn’s leading source of news and information

After its pioneering launch in 1978, The Brooklyn Paper became Brooklyn’s first successful free newspaper. With an audience unmatched in the borough’s most distinctive neighborhoods, we remain pioneers, continuing to test uncharted paths, always innovating, and changing as our markets change.

We were the first Brooklyn newspaper to enter the Internet age, and remains both the news-breaking leader and the traffic leader among Brooklyn media sites, honored by Editor & Publisher Magazine as one of the three best weekly newspaper-affiliated websites in the country.

The Brooklyn Paper was honored by the Independent Free Papers of America with it’s Vic Jose Award for General Excellence — the group’s most coveted prize.
