Advertising Due Date: June 11th



Spoke the Hub happily advertises with the Park Slope Reader—in fact, it is the only publication we now advertise in—because we feel they are the only quality periodical on the street that is kind of hip, relevant, has great writing/writers, great photos, and covers local topics of real interest to Park Slope’s upbeat, curious, and progressive families—the kind of people we also love to serve here at Spoke the Hub. (Also, their staff is incredibly helpful, flexible, talented, and personable—more qualities that we appreciate here at Spoke.) The Park Slope Reader captures the zeitgeist of Park Slope today, and Spoke the Hub is happy to be part of that passing scene.”

Welcome to the Park Slope Reader. Living around our great Prospect Park, in the Park Slope, Gowanus, Prospect Heights and Windsor Terrace communities, is kind of like living in a small town where people know their neighbors and where most of the merchants and those who offer services live locally. We work in partnership with these businesses and individuals to help create a higher level of visibility and awareness about who they are and what they offer. We think doing business is easier and ultimately more gratifying for all involved when the buyer and seller know each other and have an ongoing relationship.


Our approach is to put our energy and resources into creating the best possible community journal four times a year. Every three months the information is renewed and expanded, and its free distribution of 7,000 copies is extended into more locations in and around the neighborhood.

What we have here together is not simply a journal or a magazine but a voice and and face for our community, which is ultimately good for business.

We appreciate your interest in the Park Slope Reader and look forward to giving you the full benefit of our knowledge and experience to help you tap into our strong and dynamic readership, helping your business grow and reach its fullest potential.

By advertising in the Reader, you are investing in your community. Our readers will appreciate it and so will you. Let us know if we can answer any questions you may have.
