We love being a source of stories you enjoy, but every year it becomes harder to sustain Brooklyn Based. Our ad revenue has dropped significantly as platforms like Facebook increasingly claim a mind-boggling share of ad dollars. (All media companies have been affected by this shift, as this article documents.)

So we are now adding reader support to our main pillars of income.

If you enjoy Brooklyn Based consider offering your support. We suggest $25 a year—less than your average brunch, about the cost of two cocktails or glasses of wine at a restaurant—or any amount you are able to offer.

It’s easy to do. You can:

Or make a one-time contribution here using PayPal or Venmo (@brooklynbased)


The most important takeaway: You should feel good about any amount you can give, because even $5 makes a difference in terms of how many stories we can run.

Thank you for your support!
