NewRo Tag Sale Lady.jpgWith Passover and Easter this week, things are a bit slow for the Tag Sale Lady. We did find one Estate Sale for y'all up near Iona Prep. The weather is going to be just grand this weekend so I'll be keeping an eye out for any last minute sales. After this week I expect the tag sale season will begin in earnest so get ready!

I'll have my best Easter bonnet on this weekend so keep an eye out for me and don't be shy. Come over and say hello.

If you hear of any more tag sales be sure and send me an email at tagsalelady AT newrochelletalk DOT com. If you see a sign posted on a telephone pole just shoot a picture with your little phone gadget and send it along.

New Roc City.jpgNew Rochelle Police responded swiftly and effectively last night to disperse a crowd of an estimated 250 young people that had gathered in the area in front of the Marriott Residence Inn and Town Pizza at the corner of Anderson Street and North Avenue after fights broke out among several youths.

Over 100 youths were gathered in the area around New Street in New Roc City at 9:30 PM. The first fight occurred at about 9:50 PM. By 10:20 PM the police had secured the entire area.

With the two year anniversary of the Easter Riot this weekend and warm weather coming, New Rochelle police have been expected to increase their presence at New Roc City and along Anderson Street soon but the immediate need for large patrols has now been made apparent.
