About Bellport.com

Bellport.com is Larry Sribnick, (Editor/Publisher), Erin Rawitch, (Webmaster/Editorial Board), and Eileen Sribnick, who will tell you she dusts the computers, but don’t you believe it, she’s a very important member of our Editorial Board.

When we started Bellport.com, back in 2005, we had no idea where we’d be in 17 years. We wondered, “If we build it, will they come?” We now average about 50,000 visits, and over 2 million “hits,” a month!

When we started, there wasn’t a name for what we wanted to do so we called ourselves an online, “Paperless Newspaper” covering the South Country (Greater Bellport, Bellport Village, Brookhaven Hamlet and East Patchogue) areas of Long Island. Today, what we do is called, Online Hyperlocal News.

Unlike most business and municipality websites, Bellport.com provides a unique mix of local news that includes local bake sales, local organization and club news, local politics, local entertainment, community events, and most importantly news that will affect the health and safety of the residents of the South Country area whether it’s a hurricane, or the Coronavirus. We’ve lived in Bellport for over 40 years so we’re in a unique position to know what’s going on and report it to our readers.

Bellport.com is an integral part of the fabric of our community and when you can, please support these local businesses and organizations. Thank them for helping to support Bellport.com.
