About us

EastNewYork.com is the digital media source for East New York. The platform encourages engagement and participation from residents, non profit organizations, artists and local businesses (large & small) in the area.

The website was launched by JIG Media, of which Vernon Jones, Sr., is the CEO.  Jones played a major role as a lead negotiator in the $3 million Community Benefits Agreement, between East New York Restoration LDC, and The Related Companies, as it relates to the Gateway Mall, in East New York.

“I grew up in Brownsville and East New York, and I know the people and the neighborhood well.  Although I’ve been a homeowner in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn for the past 20 years, I have always remained in East New York, as I have loads of friends and family members in the neighborhood.  It was important for me, personally, to launch EastNewYork.com, because it allows us the opportunity to create positive messaging about the neighborhood, whereas traditional media continues to focus only on the negative.  It’s obvious that positive news is more important than negative news. We know this because our members and readership continues to grow, while traditional media continues to shrink, as they focus on negative local news.” – Vernon Jones, Sr., CEO JIG Media
