Best of Brooklyn 2013: Books & Media 

Page 3 of 4


Best DIY Library (or the Only One?)
Mellow Pages

Loan them 10 books of your own to procure borrowing privileges from their impressively deep and multidisciplinary holdings. We have no fucking clue how they can afford to operate this seemingly profitless enterprise in the way overpriced 56 Bogart building, but we’re happy they’re there for now.

Best Long-Form Website

Twice a month, this subscription-model website releases three always-terrific stories about the borough that’re reported in-depth, whether a history of the waterfront or a look into the local underground porn industry.

Best Beat Coverage

Since this weirdly named news website decided to cover the five boroughs hard, it’s made hash of its print tabloid competitors with serious straight reporting—and, yes, some occasionally silly trend pieces.


Best New Local Blog
Bedford + Bowery

When the Times dropped The Local: East Village site, the blog (co-run by NYU) joined forces with New York magazine, expanding its scope to include Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick under the new moniker Bedford + Bowery. The more on-the-ground local sites in the game, the better.
