New York, NY- The East 86th Street Association is pleased to announce the official launch of the all-new East86th.Org, as well as a completely revamped social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Andrew Fine, of The East 86th Street Association, produced and edited the website with Developer William Mallick and Designer Ken Sommer of Inteligencia, Inc..

"It really was a labor of love, working to improve the website and social media outreach for such an important, vital community organization", says Mr. Fine, who lives in the area and serves on the Board of Directors.

"We are absolutely thrilled with the result, and believe that the final product represents one of the best designed and integrated community organization websites out there" adds Elaine Walsh, President of the East 86th Street Association.

The new website, East86th.Org, takes the place of the previous site for the organization, although the latter, as well as and will still bring you to the new site. The site features local community news, events, area history, issue advocacy, neighborhood info, and a spotlight on local business. The site is integrated with MailChimp for easy newsletter submission, Stripe for easy credit card donations, and 311 to report community concerns. The website is also optimized for use on all platforms- mobile, tablet, laptop, and desktop. For ease, all three major social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) can all be followed under the moniker @East86th and are fully integrated into the new website.
