“I’m thrilled with the immediate success of GreaterSayville,” Harmon said. “Clearly, the people of Sayville and its surrounding communities are hungry for community news that Greater Long Island Media Group delivers.”
The site’s coverage area includes Sayville, West Sayville, Oakdale, Bayport, Blue Point, Greater River and North Great River.
In just restaurant coverage alone, the site broke news of The Shed restaurant planned for the former Bluestone Tavern space, the Oakdale Brew House opening and Grey Horse Tavern becoming JT’s Farmhouse in Bayport.
There was also extensive photo coverage of popular events such Sayville Summerfest and the annual Seafood Festival in West Sayville.
“The response to news from the Sayville area has been absolutely tremendous thanks to Brian’s reporting and storytelling skills,” said Michael White of Greater Long Island Media Group, which also publishes neighboring news sites GreaterBayShore and GreaterPatchogue, among others. “And the site’s popularity is just going to grow by the day.”
