NEW: Reading the New York Times at Brooklyn Tech
Two ways to read: 1. At school - You can access the New York Times on DOE internet! Here are directions to send an article to yourself to read later: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/12/technology/personaltech/saving-a-web-page-as-a-pdf.html 2. Outside of the building - you can access NY Times articles (and other publications) through the Proquest Central Student Database.

Then search by publications “New York Times” and look for the East Coast edition. You can search articles or sort by date.
