New Hyperlocal Website Launches in Summit

Dozens gathered for a morning launch party in downtown Summit.

Tips from Town, Summit was warmly greeted at Batavia Cafe by over 60 interested well-wishers as it kicked off its inaugural launch.

Several businesses including Equinox; Simple, Clean & Whole and Willow St. joined in the celebration mingling with guests and offering up several items to raffle for Tips fans.

Not to be confused with a news site, Tips From Town provides a fresh, concise look at local Summit info, including events, restaurants, movie times, school news, sports sign-ups, etc. with informative town tips.

In addition to the local color, experienced editors provide weekly interesting, useful and entertaining features on Family, Home Design, Fitness and Health, Fashion, Beauty, Food and Fun.

Tips from Town is the vision of Ridgewood resident Dr. Karen Latimer, family physician and mother of five children. “Family life has gotten practically unmanageable. I want to ease some of the scramble by providing an enjoyable platform where everything is at your fingertips, where users can come to find a recycling schedule and linger to browse through interesting, useful topics.

Like Ridgewood, Summit is a beautiful, vibrant town full of interesting and interested people. Tips From Town, Summit will be a great fit.", said Dr. Latimer, who also created Yes Five, a popular medical and lifestyle blog.

Julie McTernan, local Summit Curator for the site commented “while raising a family in Summit for many years I’ve found it can be frustrating to try and stay on top of all the wonderful things that our community has to offer.  There is so much good info out there both locally and on a bigger scale that you just don’t always hear about, whether it’s the soccer sign-up deadline, the must have from the Farmer’s Market or where to get the little black dress of the season. Tips from Town is a great resource to help people connect to Summit and the world beyond in a fun, informative way.”

Tips From Town, www.summit.tipsfromtown.com, is accessible from any computer or mobile device. Please contact Julie McTernan (917) 690-7268 at juliemcternan@tipsfromtown.com for more information.
