Ditmas Park Corner anchors the Corner Media Group of neighborhood sites in Brooklyn. The site covers events and local news in the Ditmas Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. It was the first site in a small network of neighborhood sites launched in 2013 by Liena Zagare, a local resident who previously published local news blogs that she sold to Patch in 2011 and became an editor at Patch. Other sites in Zagare's Corner News Media network: Park Slope Stoop, South Slope News, KensingtonBK. In 2014, Corner Media bought two additional Brooklyn sites, Sheepshead Bites and Bensonhurst Bean from Ned Berke, as well as Fort Greene Focus from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
