Low-Energy Intruder Hangs Out in a High-Tech Home - The New York Times
The person who entered the apartment was not the one who was expected there, and as of that moment in February, a modern, Brooklyn version of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” played out over a night and a day, the cold porridge and broken chair replaced by fast Wi-Fi and weed.

World (or at Least Brooklyn) Stops for Lost Dog - The New York Times
Every week, dozens of dogs and cats go missing in New York City. Their distraught owners put up signs. Some turn up alive. Some do not. Over the next few days, Bailey somehow became a phenomenon, a cause, and in her rarefied corner of Brooklyn and beyond, a social media star.

A Brooklyn Literary Map: The Best Book for Each Brooklyn Neighborhood
To paraphrase a famous member of the local literary scene, Brooklyn contains multitudes. And perhaps nowhere are those multitudes made more manifest than in the borough’s many neighborhoods, each as different from one another as are the city’s boroughs themselves. Over the years, countless writers have borne witness to the nuances of each neighborhood, celebrating the singular smell of the streets in Bushwick or the way the light washes over the beach in Coney Island. With this map we hope to celebrate much of the best writing set in the borough; neighborhood by neighborhood, these novels, essays, and poems reflect the specific time and place in which they are set, and in doing so, beautifully demonstrate the multitudes that make up Brooklyn as a whole, multi-faceted as it is now, and has always been.
