Reporting on this site is funded by 1,913 of our readers, who have chosen to pay for local news, and companies like Two Trees Management, who took out 500 subscriptions. To keep our small, high-impact newsroom sustainable, we calculate that we’ll need 3,000 members — less than 1% of our readers — to support us at $5/month. With everyone’s help, we are on our way. Thank you for your membership subscription:
Every little bit helps! Thank you, dear readers! You are incredible. If we don’t reach the goal, we will refund your subscription. If you want to pay by check, please make it to Corner Media, and mail to Corner Media/Bklyner, 773 Coney Island Avenue, 2Fl, Brooklyn, NY 11218.
A bit more about us:
Over the years, you’ve come to rely on the reporting of BKLYNER, and so many of the neighborhood news sites we published before it – Ditmas Park Corner, Sheepshead Bites, Bensonhurst Bean, Park Slope Stoop, South Slope News, KensingtonBK, Sunset Park Voice, Fort Greene Focus.
No one covers Brooklyn with the same tenacity and integrity as our small but devoted staff. We’ve won awards, and more important — we’ve gotten results, from new laws to new crosswalks. We’ve exposed a secret oil spill, cast light on a police commander’s brutal record, and advocated every day for Brooklyn’s communities.
But these days local independent media sources like ours are in real trouble. Revenue from advertising and classifieds that once fueled local news is now being lost to Facebook, Google, and other global internet giants. We cut our costs deeply last year, but it wasn’t enough.
Local newspapers are dying, and local news sites are shuttering every week. Like hundreds of other news outlets around the country, we’ve found it impossible to sustain a robust news organization on local ad sales alone. If you think Brooklyn deserves its own independent local news source, please subscribe now.
If you have questions or concerns, please let me know. I consider our readers a partner in this venture as we move forward and I welcome your insight and feedback – email me at Liena@bklyner.com.
