Since 2004, Brownstoner has been covering a rapidly changing Brooklyn through the lens of real estate, development and renovation. Our readers are passionate about their homes, neighborhoods and borough.
Find out what is happening in Brooklyn — from protests to BQE repair plans to art exhibitions — and connect with your neighbors on the Brownstoner blog, forum, Instagram, in our print magazine and at events.
We publish beautiful photographs, unique reviews of properties on the market, building and neighborhood histories, profiles of notable Brooklynites and interior-design house tours.
Preservation, development, real estate, renovation, interiors, design, art, retail and happenings of interest in Brooklyn are some of the stories we cover. Our twice-yearly glossy print magazine focuses on the interiors, people, food and design that make Brooklyn unique.
We’ve been called “property gossips” who cover “the whole borough as though it were one big block, where everyone has gathered to gossip on their stoops,” in the words of Variety and New York Magazine. Brownstoner’s reporting on the planned demolition of a notable historic building in East New York sparked a local protest to save it as well as a preservation movement that landmarked the Empire State Dairy.
On the Brownstoner forum, readers can ask and answer questions on renovation, repairs, landlord/tenant issues, quality of life, what is happening in a neighborhood, and anything else related to life in Brooklyn.
