What's Happening Where You Live?

Yatown is The Trusted Neighborhood Network. Yatown helps you keep up with everything about the place you care most about. Where you live.

We've been called "The Facebook of Neighborhoods". AdWeek singled out Yatown in "One of the 4 Key Trends to watch in 2012". Covering 193 thousand neighborhoods in 25 thousand cities across America, Yatown gives neighbors instant access to neighborhood-level news, events, deals, and messaging with other neighbors.

The Yatown team includes long-time former Googlers, with successful entrepreneurial exits. Yatown is backed by TiE Angels, NarraVC, and a group of experienced SV executives.

Our goal is to provide the best Local-Social experience for people who live in any neighborhood in America. Our long-term mission is "To Connect Neighbors and Strengthen Communities".
