Now AOL has sent Cecelia Smith to launch another Patch site in Greenwich.

AOL is putting a lot of resources on the table as it begins to take on the money losing Greenwich Time,

The Greenwich Time is also owned by Hearst Newspapers.

What is the Greenwich Patch?

Simply put, Greenwich Patch is a new way to find out about, and participate in, what’s going on in town.

They are a community-specific news and information platform dedicated to providing comprehensive and trusted local coverage for individual towns and communities.

The Greenwich Patch want to make your life better by giving you quick access to the information that’s most relevant to you.

Greenwich Patch will makes it easy to:

  • Keep up with news and events
  • Look at photos and videos from around town
  • Learn about local businesses
  • Participate in discussions
  • Submit your own announcements, photos, and reviews

Who’s Behind Patch?

The Greenwich Patch is run by professional editors, writers, photographers and videographers who live in or near Greenwich, and is supported by a great team in their New York City headquarters. Patch also gets advice from our Editorial Advisory Board and from many members of the community.

The new Greenwich Patch editor Ceciela Smith looks forward to meeting you, hearing your stories, and being your trusted source for community-specific information.

If you see Ms. Smith around town, don’t be afraid to say hi and tell her what you want to see on Patch!

How Can Town Residents Get Involved In The Greenwich Patch

The Greenwich Patch is designed to strengthen communities and improve the lives of town residents, but they can’t do it without you. AOL is building the Greenwich Patch so that you have plenty of opportunities to comment on stories, share your opinions, post photos and announcements, and add events to the community calendar. So get to it!

You can’t truly serve a community unless you provide the help it needs most, which is why giving back is so important to the Greenwich Patch.

The Greenwich Patch will do it as part of their Greenwich nonprofit coverage — in a dedicated space that lets local charities and volunteers find each other — and with a program called “Give 5,” through which the Greenwich Patch will donate free advertising space to charitable organizations and contribute our own time as volunteers in Greenwich.
