2020 in Hindsight

Greenline needs you!

Local news is in a crisis.  Pre-pandemic there were the challenges of maintaining ad revenue in a growing digital world.  Post-pandemic the challenges multiplied, Greenline decided to temporarily stop the printed issue of the paper and solely publish online due to ever-changing access to our local distribution sites. We want to encourage all to be safe out there, and we do intend to go to print again once it is safe to do so.

We value our readers and strive to inform you of North Brooklyn events and concerns that are of importance or interest to you.  That’s how we have rolled since 1974.  This year we called attention to local heroic efforts especially food pantries during the COVID lockdown, alternate side parking and education updates, upcoming civic action like District 33 Participatory Budgeting, art as memorial like here or here and art as an uplift, the ongoing fight to prevent evictions due to COVID-19, something to bloom hope, or a light-hearted game to deal with the pandemic head on, and so much more. The Greenline | North Brooklyn Community News has always been a free publication, and we intend it to remain so.  We need your support now more than ever. Please consider donating to our end-of-year campaign here.  The link will take you to St. Nicks Alliance’s donation page, the founder and backbone of the Greenline.
