GreaterPatchogue.com seeks to be the premier community information resource for the South Country, Patchogue-Medford and Bayport-Blue Point areas.

The site has a magazine-style feel, with a focus on quality writing and storytelling. The emphasis here is on features and community news — as opposed to crime and politics.

Michael White launched greaterpatchogue.com on July 1, 2015, after 15 years in newspapers.

He was a staff writer at daily newspapers in Maryland and then New York City, including the Daily News, where he last served in the Police Bureau. He is also a former editor of both The Suffolk Times and Riverhead News-Review weekly newspapers on Long Island’s East End.

Mike has a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University and an English/journalism degree from the University of Delaware.

You can reach him directly at mike@greaterpatchogue.com, or call 631-786-5708.

Our offices are located at 58 Waverly Avenue, Patchogue, NY 11772.


In loving memory of Anthony D. Ferrara (1982-2015)
