Hell Gate’s Farewell to Hats Sale!

To make room for more swag, we need to unload hats—for an all-time low price!

10:01 AM EST on November 13, 2023

Every year Hell Gate offers top subscribers a new, effortlessly stylish, piece of branded swag. This year’s offering, in production now, is going to knock your socks off. But first, we must retire a legend.

We'll admit it: It's going to be tough to beat our union-made baseball hats, which have been the talk of the city since their debut last fall. Stylish, durable, comfortable, sporting much of the same colorway as those cool mid-90s Chicago Bulls championship hats...we were absolutely on fire right out of the gate with our apparel.

They were a true mark of a local news sicko—only our highest-level subscribers were able to get their hands on these beautiful hats. 

That's why we're here to let you know that before we switch over to our new swag this December, we're offering a special all-timer of a Hell Gate deal:


Not only that, but by subscribing now, you'll get TWO PIECES of Hell Gate swag in twelve months. What a deal!

For the next week (November 13-19) or until we run out of hats, we're dropping prices on our annual SUBSCRIBER and BELIEVER subscriptions—and expanding who can take home one of the last of our sweet, union-made Hell Gate hats. 

You can now subscribe to become an annual BELIEVER for $150, a 25 percent discount! That gets you:

  • A Hell Gate hat
  • Hell Gate stickers
  • Commenting privileges on the website, and
  • Four exclusive quarterly events with the Hell Gate team (including our holiday party!)

But that's not all—we're dropping the subscription price to be an annual SUPPORTER to $75, also a 25 percent discount! And what does that get you? A whole lot more than it used to!

  • A Hell Gate hat
  • Hell Gate stickers, and
  • Commenting privileges on the website

(And please note that after a year, you'll be able to renew at our standard price of $100 and $200 depending on your subscription level.)

Help support a new model for local journalism, and claim one of a quickly-diminishing number of hats!
