Ummm, so The Villager and its sister newspapers are moving out of Manhattan.

In 2012, former media exec Jennifer Goodstein purchased NYC Community Media, which owns The Villager, Gay City News, and Chelsea Now. Two years later, the MetLife alumna continued her streak by acquiring the Community Newspaper Group from News Corp (formed by her husband). This small-time media consortium publishes a stable of eleven likeminded papers in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. They’re now moving into the outer-Borough HQ…

Buried in the basement of the article is news of said relocation to Brooklyn:

The Villager and its sister papers will be moving later this month to the Community Newspaper Group’s Downtown Brooklyn office at One MetroTech. It will be familiar territory as the papers temporarily relocated there at the end of 2012 because of damage to the company’s Canal St. office caused by Hurricane Sandy.

C.N.G., which distributes more than 235,000 papers a week, publishes Caribbean Life, The Brooklyn Paper, The Bronx Times Reporter, Bay News and Bay Ridge Courier, Bayside Times and the TimesLedger. It also publishes specialty magazines, including the Wedding Guide and Sweet Sixteen Magazine.
