Bedford + Bowery is an online news site produced by NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute in collaboration with New York magazine. It launched the Williamsburg pop-up newsroom in September. It offers a temporary base of operations in Brooklyn as well as a venue for events—panel discussions, readings, workshops, and shows of local artists. The Newsroom will be open through the month of October; after that, Bedford + Bowery will continue to cover north Brooklyn out of the Carter Journalism Institute’s 20 Cooper Square location.
