A plate glass window at the I.B. Cohen store at 525 Main Street in downtown New Rochelle was smashed overnight.
The store window was smashed previously during a melee involving a group of New Rochelle High School students, some of them armed with knives, fought in the street on October 16, 2007. In that incident three teens were injured and two arrested.
I.B. Cohen is a family-owned men's clothing store that has been in New Rochelle for 124 years.Read more
Dozens of tires were stolen from the Main Street Honda parking lot at 200 E. Main Street this morning.
18 cars were placed on cinder blocks and the tires removed. The cars were primarily Hondas and Acuras along with a Toyotas. Also stolen was a box truck and two bumper covers from a Honda Civic.
The theft took place overnight, sometime between 5 p.m. and 5:30 a.m., according to New Rochelle Police Detective Captain Joseph Schaller. The thieves gained access to the property by cutting a whole in a chain link fence. The lot has been targeted before. In January, a hole was made in the window of the dealership which police believe may have been a bullet hole.
The parking lot is behind the Honda User Car dealership near Lefevre Lane, the road that leads to Five Islands Park in New Rochelle, NY.Read more
Cross another independent pharmacy in New Rochelle off the list.
Weeks after CVS acquired Almarc Drugs in New Rochelle and Larchmont, the company has acquired the prescription drug business of Cherry Lawn Pharmacy which was then transferred to the Wykagyl CVS next to the Starbucks. The transfer is effective immediately.
Customers who arrived this morning were stunned, sad and angry to find the doors locked and a message directing them to the Wykagyl CVS at 1296 North Avenue at the Wykagyl Shopping Center.
"I am mad and sad all at once." said Amelia Lopopolo of New Rochelle. "Look at me I am about to cry. I was just here the other day."Read more
UGH!!! I can't take it anymore. I have to say something. This pablum and drivel coming out of the Daily New Rochelle is driving me crazy.
As they came into New Rochelle, on the heels of Patch, yet another interloper pretending to know something about New Rochelle, I bit my tongue. I have tried to be friendly to both their original reporter and his replacement, Justin Stock. The final straw was Justin's "reporting" on a GreeNR presentation by New Rochelle Sustainability Coordinator Deborah Newborn at a League of Women Voters event at the New Rochelle Public Library. I will address that meeting at a later date.
I sent Justin an email:
Is it the policy of Main Street Connect to only report the government point of view on topics or is that just what they teach at the University of Arizona these days?

As Talk of the Sound first reported on April 6th, CVS is acquiring Almarc Drugs, according to a statement issued by CVS today.
On and after April 5th sources provided Talk of the Sound with the following information:
Employees speaking on condition of anonymity told Talk of the Sound they were informed yesterday that the company had been acquired by CVS and will be closed in two weeks. The price tag for the sale of the two stores including the buildings is said to be around $24 million. A manager at the Almarc Drugs store in New Rochelle declined to comment.
On that day, two Talk of the Sound contributors visited the location and made inquiries as the pending sale. Store staff and the manager on duty that day declined to answer questions. The manager was asked to pass along the request to the appropriate person. No one from Almarc responded and the story ran the next day.Read more
