Greenlight Bookstore

In 2008, the venerable Brooklyn community organization known as the Fort Greene Association commissioned a survey to find out what kinds of retail options local residents thought were missing from their changing neighborhood. Across all demographics of income level, ethnicity and background, the number one answer was “a bookstore.”
In September of that year, more than 300 locals came out to support the bookstore plan. Colson Whitehead and local residents gave speeches, and the event was covered in the New York Times. At the party, owners Rebecca Fitting and Jessica Stockton Bagnulo launched their Community Lender Program, in which individuals loaned the store $1000 or more in order to help the store get started.
Since Greenlight’s doors opened in 2009, Jessica, Rebecca and their staff have put down roots, and settled into a community that said they wanted a bookstore, then helped to make it happen. Today, Greenlight carries a wide and lovingly curated selection of books, and keeps up an extremely ambitious calendar of events.

In November of 2016, a second location opened in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, where co-owner Rebecca Fitting lives. The 2,100 square foot retail space at 632 Flatbush Avenue (at Fenimore Street) is part of the new development The Parkline.
