GreaterBayShore seeks to be the premier community information resource for Bay Shore, Brightwaters and the surrounding hamlets from Robert Moses Causeway to Heckscher State Parkway.

This is a daily news website that 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.

GreaterBayShore is part of the group of local news sites.
