The Brooklyn Paper covers news and cultural events that have taken place throughout the borough, using different mastheads for neighborhoods such as Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights, Bay Ridge, etc. In addition to news coverage, The Paper also publishes a weekly entertainment guide entitled GO Brooklyn. It was started in 1978.[1]

Though the various print editions are published once a week, The Brooklyn Paper's website is updated every weekday with stories, and since March 2008, with video podcasts.[2]
