About Us

After working in the industry for many years at papers like The Daily News, The Ronkonkoma Review and The Fire Island Tide, Fran Maccarone and Bea Hoffer began the Our Place Newspaper back in December of 1989. The Holbrook edition was the first and 4 months later, the Ronkonkoma edition was published. Now including a third edition in the Centereach area, Our Place continues to grow. In 2014, new owners, Karen and Christine took over and continue Fran and Bea’s dream of making Our Place, the best local community paper on Long Island. Readers truly enjoy the articles, jokes, trivia and puzzles that are spread through the paper, as well as the quality advertising. Advertisers continue to see a high return on investment from the ads displayed, since readers truly read the unique community newspaper. As members of the Chamber of Commerce of Ronkonkoma, Holbrook and Centereach, Our Place is committed to advocate on behalf of the business community, as well as provide a quality paper that readers enjoy reading. Bringing the readers and businesses together in a quality publication fostering community, is what has given Our Place the high reviews from their customers. We would love to show you how you can increase your business by advertising with Our Place.
