About OTBKB

Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn brings hyper local news to brownstone Brooklyn.  The Thomas Wolfe story “Only the Dead Know Brooklyn” inspired the blog’s name.

When BKers want the scoop on the local scene – from arts and entertainment to politics and on-the-spot news or the best of urban life – they head over to OTBKB.

Since 2004, when OTBKB introduced Smartmom, one woman’s parenting adventures online, the beloved hyper-local place-blog has drawn a devoted following of daily readers who live by OTBKB’s stories and recommendations.

OTBKB features stories on civics and urban life, arts and culture, food and drink, local shopping and parenting. Every day there are great links to other blogs and every day: great photography presented by No Words Daily Pix.

OTBKB founder Louise Crawford also runs Brooklyn Blog Fest, an annual gathering of bloggers and entrepreneurs held each Spring. She is the impresario behind Brooklyn Reading Works, a monthly themed reading series at the Old Stone House in Park Slope.
