The store opened its doors this week and is in soft launch for now. There will be an official grand opening in a month or so but if you want to stop by and beta tests some delicious frozen yogurt and speciality coffee drinks while they get things up and running you are welcome.
Beanberry is owned by the same folks who brought you the nearby Gallery Cafe (with a kiosk located in City Hall).Read more
One of the nice things about having Ballet Atlantic in downtown New Rochelle, in addition to its great new facility and easy access, is the fact that we can conveniently visit restaurants and stores during our children’s classes and also run errands with our kids after class. One of my very favorite post ballet excursions with my children is a walk to Merry-Go-Round Toy Store which has been a fixture at 188 North Avenue for 60 years. It has been popular among families for six decades because it remains fully stocked year round, not just during the holidays, offers competitive prices, and for me, most importantly, is child friendly and offers knowledgeable service. For us busy parents, it is also open seven days a week, and oh, provides free gift wrapping. What more could a parent want?Read more
When Mila Levine began writing music, she never expected that it would be useful in her career. But as Director of Recreation at United Hebrew of New Rochelle, she has found her musical background to be a tremendous help in bringing the creative process to the residents. Songwriting is now on the recreation calendar on a regular basis at United Hebrew, where the residents of the new nursing home and rehabilitation pavilion use their creative juices to write new songs.
“I just love to assist our residents in expanding their minds and creating new songs. We start with a brainstorming session where new concepts for songs can flow.” remarks Ms. Levine, “Our residents’ ideas and inspirational thoughts continue to amaze me.”Read more
Incompetent DPW workers stem from one place, incompetent management. The other day, I witnesses with my own eyes and ears a DPW pick-up truck filled with four (4) men whose sole jobs were to go around and fill sand/salt barrels. The driver of the truck asked me where the barrel was. I pointed it out and said, “It was in front of that car.” Two other workers were ready, with shovels in hand, to fill the barrel. The driver, on the other hand, immediately said, “We’ll call it in and come back another time.” Laziness at its maximum capacity. New Rochelle needs to clean house, starting from the top to the bottom. Hard working tax payers are paying ridiculously high property and school taxes on incompetence. Businesses and residents are suffering during these tough economic times, while Bramson, Strome and the P.O.S. Councilpersons are being paid high salaries for “F”ing things up beyond repair. City Hall better wake up. Their lazy, do nothing actions are stemming down to workers. Their mentality is, “I don’t have to work for my salary and they can’t do anything about it.”
Back on December 12th, a woman named Andrea Hoffman tweeted about a planned appearance at Monroe College to promote her book Black is the New Green, Marketing to Affluent African Americans. Noticing the tweet, I contacted her offering to promote her event.
you tweeted that you were coming to speak in New Rochelle.
Please send details and we will promote it.
Thanks for the note. Myself and my co-author will be speaking about our book. Here is the website.
There were no details about the event on the web site she sent. After poking around, I gave up and wrote her again.
I am aware that you will be speaking --- I need date, time, loc, etc.
New Rochelle's Talk of the Sound
As you can see from the picture, the sidewalk along Huguenot Hills has been cordoned off with "police line" tape and a barricade from the police dept. Good news when you stop to consider the danger lurking above in the form of 20 lb icicles. The pictures show how the ice is forming in the roof corners that have no gutters.
This isn't stopping everyone from passing under the hazzardous conditions as you can see.Read more
