Real-World Impacts

Legend
Real World Impact
Self reported impact on the communities the newsroom serves.

A couple examples of Bushwick Daily original reporting that is representative of the work we do. In 2019, National Grid Gas Company started refusing to hook up gas lines for multiple small businesses in North Brooklyn due to a legislative loophole. Bushwick Daily broke the story with an article covering the gas shut-off and featuring several local business owners unable to operate because of the shutdown. The original reporting published by Bushwick Daily was seen by local city officials, larger publications and other local business owners allowing them to put pressure on the gas company to provide service to the businesses which they eventually did. Last year there was a spike in ICE raids in our coverage area. We covered the raids and published news-to-use stories on how to protect yourself if ICE shows up at your door, along with info on the ongoing raids and how our local elected officials were responding to the activity. Bushwick Daily also covers positive community news on black and POC businesses. An example of this is Ethel’s Club, the first exclusively POC private membership and workspace club to open in Brooklyn. Bushwick Daily published an exclusive interview with the owner and information on how the community could support the organization and get involved.
