Anton Community Newspapers, also known by its legal name Long Island Community Newspapers, Inc. is a print media company based in Mineola, NY on Long Island in Nassau County and produces 18 weekly newspapers in Nassau County as well as The Boulevard Magazine and Healthy Living. Anton Community Newspapers is one of the largest privately owned newspaper companies in New York State.

The current Anton Community Newspapers stems from the 1984 purchase by Karl V. Anton, Jr. of Community Newspapers, Inc., a chain of eight community newspapers on the North Shore of Long Island, from Edward Higgins. By fall, Anton had moved the company's headquarters from Glen Cove, New York to Mineola, changed the corporate name to Long Island Community Newspapers, and started expanding the chain rapidly, both with purchases and creation of new titles, such as Garden City Life in 1985 and the Hicksville Illustrated News in 1986.

Today, Anton Community Newspapers publishes 18 weekly newspapers in Nassau County, NY, in addition to other bimonthly publications. The Boulevard magazine spun off from the roots and relationships of the community newspapers, capitalizing on established relationships and seeking out new ones. Anton Community Newspapers serves Long Island’s famed Gold Coast area.

After Karl Anton's death, his wife, Angela Susan Anton, became the Publisher and CEO of Anton Community Newspapers.
