Bay Ridge Courier

Bay Ridge’s community appeal is a powerful vehicle for lucrative business opportunities, and its hometown newspaper — the Bay Ridge Courier — is the forum of choice to fortify brands. Residents of Bay Ridge — named for its proximity to the Narrows Bay and its glacial-era high ridge — know their neighbors, schools, and merchants. They attend civic meetings together and unite at community fundraisers. The small-town ambience offers big potential for advertisers desiring solid community coverage.

Its fringe culture of young hipsters powers a thriving indie arts, food, and music scene in Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Ditmas Park, Downtown, Kensington, DUMBO, and Windsor Terrace. Exciting long-term initiatives — including the Brooklyn Tech Triangle Strategic Plan, estimated to advance economic, recreational, and commercial growth in the greater Downtown Brooklyn area over the next 10 years — are plums of opportunity waiting to be plucked by savvy companies.

“Through our 10 years here at The Pearl Room, CNG and the Bay Ridge Cour­ier have been instru­mental in helping us grow. The Courier’s mar­ket­ing skills, ad designs, and dining stories have helped us expand our cust­omer base through the entire borough of Brooklyn. Even as hectic as it can be in the restaurant business, they have always been willing to work with us very closely to make sure we make all of the special edition deadlines. The personal touch is what makes working with them so great.”
