2016: RivertownsGuide launched in February 2009. What started as fun side project when both kids went off to elementary school quickly blossomed into a comprehensive resource relied upon by the people in the Southern Rivertowns of Westchester and well beyond.
Fast-forward to Fall of 2016… We present RivertownsGuide 2.0, as it is affectionately called at our house, with a more contemporary, vibrant home page which includes more local happenings, arts & entertainment, village updates, and businesses launches, all optimized for whatever screen you’re on.
A lot has changed since we launched 7 1/2 years ago. Both kids are now in high school, social media has exploded, and the services we offer businesses & professionals has expanded through RTG and 744 Creative.
So take a look around and shoot us an email if you have thoughts/questions info@RivertownsGuide.com.
2009: When Jennifer Holiday and Howard Grossman moved from Manhattan to the Rivertowns with their not-yet-two-year-old daughter in late 2001, they were surprised that they could not find an online resource for the area. As life got busier with the addition of a baby boy in late 2002, they continued to Google and ask friends for restaurants, stores, and local activities in the area for their young family. Then in 2007, with two kids in the elementary school, Jennifer and Howard decided that the Rivertowns deserved a website that would feature all of the richness of the area and its people.
RivertownsGuide.com is an ever-growing, online resource complete with arts & entertainment, shopping, restaurants listings; kids activities, classes and birthday party resources; school information, local blogs, talent and websites; and so much more. The site will be added to daily as events, resource listings, and “calls-for-information” (specific information that is periodically requested on the home page) are discovered and announced, as well as by visitor input as they are encouraged to share their favorite area resources.
With Jennifer’s 15+ years of marketing experience in the publishing industry and Howard’s almost 30 years in graphic design, they knew that they could create a web site that would be comprehensive, functional and well-designed providing the Rivertowns with a much needed resource.
In addition, they currently have two creative firms, 744 Creative and 12E Design, which have been providing print and web marketing + design since 1997. They provide services for a wide variety of clients; 12E Design provides packaging design for the publishing industry while 744 Creative provides services to the arts community, businesses, non-profits, and schools.
Locally, 744 Creative has been responsible for design work for Take Me to the River 2008, 2009 & 2010; Aquefest 2008, 2009 & 2010; Jazz & Blues Festival 2009; Hastings Friday Night LIVE 2010 & ongoing; downtown Hastings Banner Project; the Riverarts Artists’ Studio Tour, 2007 & 2008; Taiim Falafel Shack in Hastings [link] (identity + design + website + marketing); Shira Adler [link] (identity + website); Dobbs Ferry Fest (identity + design); among others.
