BK Reader is a hyperlocal digital daily news source reporting the art, culture, business and lifestyle of Brooklyn’s fastest-developing areas, including the neighborhoods of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Brownsville, East New York, Prospect Heights, Flatbush and Bushwick.
Launched in 2013, BK Reader is for Brooklyn, by Brooklyn. All of our writers and reporters are Brooklyn residents. In our “Local Voices” section, we give local residents a blogging platform to share their personal or professional insight on whatever they choose, and our “Young Voices” section encourages writers, ages 8-18, to express themselves about the world around them.
Subscribers to BK Reader’s newsletter receive the latest news updates emailed to them Monday through Saturday, at 7:00am. And with Bloom news geolocation, readers can search the latest BK Reader coverage within blocks of their zip code, and/or customize their newsletters to receive updates concerning only their immediate block.
BK Reader is Brooklyn’s most trusted source for local news and information because it belongs to the community. From city and state government officials, to mom-and-pop store owners; from community board members, to public housing residents; and from brownstone owners to recent college graduates, BK Reader truly is for the people, by the people.
