Local stories for a strong community. Tune in for the latest from Bushwick, a rapidly changing Brooklyn neighborhood exploding with arts, activism, and entrepreneurship.


The Locals Brooklyn

Bushwick is home to what may be the world's only real estate brokerage where you can simultaneously rent an apartment smokable hemp? This week, we look at the story behind The Locals Laboratory, a surprising organization trying to effect positive change in the neighborhood at the intersection of real estate and therapeutic plants.


Our sincere thanks to Angela, Merly, and the Locals team. You can find out more about The Locals at their website,, and on their instagram, @thelocalsbrooklyn. To learn more about The Locals Laboratory and the hemp side of things, head to, and follow along at @thelocalslab.
