New Rochelle's Finance Commissioner - Mr. Howard Rattner

January 01, 2011 - 21:18

I recently met with Mr. Howard Rattner, the Finance Commissioner of New Rochelle, and asked him to comment on our taxes, and how it affects us as home-owners in this great city. I have always found the tax offices of New Rochelle to be most professional, accessible and if you click onto the video that follows this link , I think you will greatly enjoy Mr. Rattner’s comments.

Not to worry -- those aren't gun shots folks.

It's just the usual round of illegal fireworks being set off at one of the beach clubs in the Davenport area. When we find out the details we will post them here.

A reader sent along this advertisement for a beach club event on New Year's Eve.

Journal News/Metromix Advertistment: V.I.P.'s 2011 Extravaganza in New Rochelle

The V.I.P. Country Club will host a New Year's Eve Extravaganza starting at 8 p.m. Tickets include entertainment by Top Notch Music all night. An elegant dinner buffet, open bar, champagne toast, an elaborate dessert table and continental breakfast are all included. Reservations are a must. Details: 600 Davenport Ave., New Rochelle, 914-235-1500.

Perhaps a knowledgeable reader can explain the history behind this; there are laws against holding events where tickets are sold although the law is different for in-season and off-season events.

We are working on getting some video of the fireworks. If you have any photos or videos send them along.
