Our mission at Brooklyn Commune is to bring people together around food. By providing a welcoming environment with simple yet delicious food, we encourage the development of relationships within our community. Our commitment to promoting sustainability is practiced through sponsoring educational opportunities about healthy choices, and through partnerships with local producers, artists and organizations. We compost our organic materials with a local community farm and our electricity is powered by pollution-free, renewable energy provided by Green Mountain Energy. Founders Eugenie Woo and Christopher Scott understand the value of food as not just a basic necessity to nourish the body, but the spirit as well. After a combined 35 years of experience in fine dining restaurants, luxury hotels, and corporate dining environments, Eugenie and Chris now focus on building more personal relationships through feeding others and supporting community involvement activities. In an increasingly time-pressured and processed world, taking the time to share a wholesome meal with others is one of the most basic ways that we can express love for one another.

Developed in India, Yoga is a psycho-physical discipline with roots going back about 5,000 years. Today, most Yoga practices in the West focuses on the physical postures called "asanas," breathing exercises called "pranayama," and meditation. However, there's more to it than that, and the deeper you go the richer and more diverse the tradition becomes. The word "Yoga" means union. Linguistically, it is related to the Old English "yoke." Traditionally, the goal of Yoga is union with the Absolute, known as Brahman, or with Atman, the true self. These days the the focus is often on the more down-to-earth benefits of Yoga, including improved physical fitness, mental clarity, greater self-understanding, stress control and general well-being. Spirituality, however, is a strong underlying theme to most practices. The beauty of Yoga is in its versatility, allowing practitioners to focus on the physical, psychological or spiritual, or a combination of all three.

Located just off the southwest corner of Prospect Park, the cozy wooden space is a haven for beer lovers: There’s a rotating selection of $5 to $9 microbrews on tap (past picks include Sixpoint Bengali Tiger IPA and the hard-to-find Atwater Vanilla Java Porter), as well as a variety of local and imported bottled and canned beers, listed on a chalkboard behind the bar. There are candlelit dark-wood tables spread liberally along the brick walls and a long beer hall–esque fourteen-person table down the middle. The result is a low-key space that feels full, but never crowded. — Molly Finkelstein
Since it opened in 1971, Community Bookstore has been many things to many people. A bookstore, yes, but also a gathering place and a welcoming refuge. Community Bookstore is notable for a considered selection of new books, for our garden, and for our animals (one cat and one turtle, at present). In 2013, we took over another neighborhood bookshop, renamed it Terrace Books, and stocked it with a mix of new, collectible and curated used books. But no cat. Community Bookstore’s Tiny, so famous he’s on the cover of a bestseller in Japan, refuses to share the spotlight! - Stephanie, Ezra and the Staff
