Copies of the Rail can be found around New York City in cultural institutions, colleges, and a growing list of national and international subscribers. Our readership includes students, influential artists, writers, professors, curators, collectors and leaders in the arts.

“The Brooklyn Rail forges communities across cultural disciplines, boroughs, and ideologies. A brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed newspaper, The Rail is making an absolutely crucial contribution to the intellectual life of the city and even the nation.”
