Our Mission

Each week the Canarsie Courier endeavors to publish a trusted independent newspaper that records the history and reports the events of the various communities in Southeastern Brooklyn that it covers in a way that not only timely and accurately informs, but also serves to enhance the quality of life of its residents and brings recognition and success to its merchants and advertisers. 

Since 1921 the Canarsie Courier has been reporting the news from down the block and around the corner. We know that local news is what is important to our readership and every Thursday we deliver relevant information on local happenings, events, local elected officials and politicians, local schools and organizations, as well as local sports and much much more. Moreover, the Canarsie Courier continually strives to connect businesses to area residents and to bring excellent results to our advertisers.

We encourage all area residents, businesses and organizations to submit their news, events, announcements and promotions. The Canarsie Courier is all about local news and local business and we are acutely aware that having a strong and interactive community newspaper is crucial to a strong and diverse community. Please join our growing family.
