In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Brooklyn Rail has inaugurated The New Social Environment, a daily online forum for artists, writers, filmmakers, and cultural curators to discuss creative life in the context of our new reality. Interested in becoming a sponsor? email [email protected].

The Brooklyn Rail forges communities across cultural disciplines, boroughs, and ideologies. A brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed newspaper, The Rail is making an absolutely crucial contribution to the intellectual life of the city and even the nation.
