Two downtown retailers have begun preparations for moving out. "Things for Kids", a children's furniture store and "The Loop" a sneaker and activewear store on North Avenue, have posted signs indicating that they are leaving.

CVS will be moving into downtown New Rochelle after these two retailers vacate.

In the storefront windows of the "The Loop" passers-by can see that there are "16 days left". At "Things for Kids" there is a "Huge Moving Sale".

Buy your own tires! Get a new career!

This morning we woke up to this sight on southern North Avenue.

The thieves took the two tires on the sidewalk facing side and left the two tires on the street side.

This is something we DO NOT NEED in our neighborhood. I remember that they were going to install cameras at the intersection of North & Pelham Road. Could the cameras have caught a clue on this crime?

We don't want those annoying car alarms from the early 90s back either. What I am thinking is this, exploding ink cartridges on the tires so that the thieves get blasted. They would need some kind of code so the owners could change their tires, too. Are the Miceli's available for a business invention arrangement?

NR Crossing Guard Struck by Car on November 12th

A New Rochelle crossing guard was struck by a car on November 12th and is recovering at home. According to the recent Trinity PTA newsletter, "Mr. Rizzutti, our crossing guard on North Ave. and Pelham Rd. was hit by a car on November 12th and is now recovering at home from a serious head injury. Gratefully, he should make a full recovery."

The newsletter article continues.

This should be a strong reminder to all students and parents that not all people passing by our school are part of our community and are not taking care when driving through our neighborhood.

There are so many distractions today and we must use extreme caution when coming to and leaving our school with our children.

We also ask that parents dropping off and picking up children respect the drop off zone and do not double and triple park on Church St. and Pelham roads, or cross in the middle of these streets with your children, this has become as much of a hazard as speeding through the school zone. We have been very lucky that no children have been hurt, please help us protect them.

Open Post to those who ran for office and were defeated

Today Cohen conceded to Oppenheimer after recounts. It must have been very difficult for all. Thank you to those who run for office. The expense and the effort are enormous.

We have this poster in our office at home, that I hope will inspire these candidates to perhaps run again.

The Mayor gets an Earful on the South End

November 30, 2010 - 03:11

Last Monday night, November 22nd, Mayor Bramson invited neighbors to a community meeting at the colorful and beautiful offices of Cross Cultural Solutions at 2 Clinton Place. Cross Cultural Solutions offers programs where people can volunteer around the world. Their brochure says "With CCS, you can enjoy the flexibility of choosing from 12 countries, start dates year round, and programs from 1 to 12 weeks long." Their offices are filled with photographs, cultural artifacts, pottery and sculpture. To get upstairs, you walk up a wide staircase made of rough hewn logs.

A diverse group of approximately 45 locals met in a round open auditorium with three levels of platforms with chairs on them. The mayor stood at the bottom and the entrance and encouraged all to sign in. A large skylight was centered above the room, which was very warm.

Hudson Park - Save Mondays & Tuesdays for Summer 2011

November 25, 2010 - 16:15
2 comments

In the proposed 2011 budget, the city has closed Hudson Park on Mondays and Tuesdays to save money. Apparently the park is underutilized and at risk of losing city funding.

On local radio shows, I have heard one councilman looking for ideas. Bob Marrone on WVOX said it might be $1000 a day or week. A city sailing school was mentioned. Some city councilmen are trying to figure out a way to make the park profitable in order to meet the line budget for the two days. It sounds like they are looking for what many businesses call 'alternate revenue streams' or 'ancillary income'.

In an effort to communicate what the public thinks and any ideas that we might have, we are asking here for ideas.
