Welcome to Deer Park-North Babylon Patch

The newest site in the Patch family brings coverage of local news and events to both communities.

Thanks for stopping by Deer Park-North Babylon Patch. Your new hyper-local website will provide the latest news and events and also allow you to take part in shaping how we cover each community.

We've got a ton of ways for you to contribute to the site. Here's a taste of them below: 

Connect with the local editor. Email Deer Park-North Babylon Patch editor Amanda Lindner at amanda.lindner@patch.com, or call her at 631-374-9884 if you have any tips or information to share.

Social network. Deer Park-North Babylon Patch already has active Facebook and Twitter pages. Like and follow us now to join the conversation.

Share the news. When we know about community news, we're on the case. From important announcements to power outages and crime, Patch is covering news 24-7. See something you think others should read? All you have to do is click the Facebook "recommend" button above an article or blog to share it with your neighbors and friends.

Comment. If you have information to add to an article, jump in and post a comment. We'll follow up and possibly add it to related articles in the future. Most community stories continue to evolve after they are reported—you can be a real-time source of community happenings by commenting.

Get the iPhone or Droid app. Your smartphone is an awesome tool for getting the info on what's going on in your community. Click here to get the Patch app for free on iTunes. Not only can you read news on it, but post photos and videos as well. 

Add to the calendar. Have an event you want to make the community aware of? Don't be shy. Post it in our events calendar for all to see. It's free!

Volunteer. The same goes for our announcements section on Patch. Are you looking for volunteers for a service project? Sign up for an account and post your big news!

Blog. Everybody in any community has a story to tell. Don't keep them to yourself. Sign up to be a blogger on Patch.

Rate your businesses. Check out our business directory and tell us why you'll always be a customer at your local hair salon. How many stars will you give them?
