Greenlight Bookstore

In 2008, the venerable 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 of Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Across all demographics of income level, ethnicity, and background, the #1 answer was “a bookstore.”

In September 2008, over 300 locals came out to support the bookstore plan at a Fort Greene Association event. Author Colson Whitehead and local residents gave speeches, and the event was covered in the New York Times. At the party, Jessica and Rebecca announced the store’s name: Greenlight Bookstore. They also launched their Community Lender Program, in which individuals loaned the store $1000 or more in order to help the store get started. Over $70,000 of the bookstore’s startup capital ultimately came from community lenders, and their support allowed the business to obtain loans for the remainder of the capital needed to create the bookstore.

Since Greenlight Bookstore’s doors opened in 2009, owners Jessica and Rebecca and their staff of booksellers have been hard at work on putting down roots, and settling into their home in Fort Greene, Brooklyn: a community that said they wanted a bookstore, then helped to make it happen.
