Hot off the press! The Village Sun launches print edition

You can now read The Village Sun in print!

That’s right! Our first print issue rolled off the press Thursday afternoon and will soon be distributed all over the Downtown Manhattan area, from river to river.

While some “media experts” like to drone on…and on…about how “print is dead,” that’s simply not the case for print community media, which is still going strong. People want their community news, and they simply don’t get enough of it from other media outlets.

Also there’s that good, old tactile quality of holding a physical, well-designed paper that many readers still love. And advertisers like to see their ads in print. It’s just a win-win all around.

Our inaugural issue is a solid 32 pages and features an excellent special supplement for the upcoming The Village Trip festival (Sept. 10 – 25). Now in its fifth year, the fest honors Greenwich Village as a place of creativity and unique cultural history. The Trip staff really knocked themselves out putting together a beautiful and informative guide for their slew of events, which we’re sure readers will want to know more about and will want to attend. We know we will!

Our plan was to publish monthly to start out. But there has already been a tremendous amount of support for the print paper — so stay tuned.

We’ll be distributing The Village Sun in print — which is free — in the days to come. Among just a few of the spots where you can find a copy, starting Friday afternoon, are Theater for the New City (155 First Ave.), the Earth Church (36 Loisaida Ave. / Third Street and Avenue C), Morton Williams supermarket (130 Bleecker St.), Westbeth Artists Housing (55 Bethune St.), Key Food supermarket (52 Avenue A), Senior Center on the Square (20 Washington Square North) and Mercer Street Books (206 Mercer St.).

    Great news. Few Villagers are aware it was only you, as editor then of your other paper, that sponsored a forum in the community to find a real solution to stop the closings of Village merchants. Only you that ran more investigative series on the plight of our small businesses than all the community papers combined. Your independence and commitment to call out lawmakers and hold them accountable for not making a priority to save even one business will be welcome news today in our real estate-controlled government.
