Freebird Books was established in 2004 by Samantha Citrin and Rachel London, and is now owned by local resident, Peter Miller. The shop is located on the Brooklyn waterfront near the docks and container port. Though the hours are limited to the weekend, Freebird still sponsors community-oriented events such as readings, book clubs, and workshops. It is a temporary home to Books Through Bars, a non-profit which works to provide quality reading material to prisoners nationwide.
