Announcing the Community News Group — New York’s largest collection of family-owned newspapers, websites, and magazines and the city’s most powerful name in community journalism.
Our assortment of weekly and bi-weekly newspapers along with websites that are updated several times a day have been bringing neighbors together for more than 80 years.
We’ve got our finger on the pulse of our communities, and no one has the attention of New York City’s hippest and most-happening neighborhoods like we do.
More than 1 million people living in neighborhoods such as the Village, Dumbo, Astoria, Pelham Bay, Sheepshead Bay, Williamsburg, Bayside, Throggs Neck, and many more look to us each month to find out what is happening in and around their homes.
We do this as members of our communities. Our staff — from reporters, to editors, to sales reps, to ownership — lives in the communities it covers, so we know what is happening when, where, and why.
So look to your local Community News Group newspaper and website for breaking news, analysis, and what’s happening in your area, because there are a million stories in New York City, and we’re covering them one neighborhood at a time.
