“Our web site, LongIslandExchange.com, reports information on the Long Island area and provides locals with news and information on business, entertainment and events to residents.

“Pinterest will help channel Internet traffic to our website from visitors who are seeking information or images of particular areas, but this benefit was an after-thought as well as an after benefit, as we were the first to begin to successfully categorize Long Island by it Town and Hamlets, as well our own created Maps, from a foundational desire to truly be, as our tag line signifies, The Guide to Everything that IS, Long Island,” Colascione said.
