Scope and Contents

The collection is primarily composed of newspapers published in Brooklyn, New York, dating from the 18th century to 2016. In addition to paper editions, the collection includes microfilm copies of certain publications.

Geographically, the newspapers cover the numerous neighborhoods of Brooklyn, as well the other boroughs of New York City (Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx), Long Island (Suffolk and Nassau Counties), and parts of upstate New York and New Jersey. The collection also includes issues of The Liberator, an abolitionist newspaper which was published in Boston, Massachusetts.

Some newspapers were published for specific communities (African-Americans, Caribbean-Americans, Catholics, Jewish-Americans, the military) or specific topics (business, real estate, antiques, computers, etc.).

One newspaper of note is The Christian Union, which was edited by Henry Ward Beecher.

Please note that this collection does not include newspapers which are currently being held at our off-site storage facility.
