The Mobil Gas Station on North Avenue and Brookside near Iona College has increased the price of high octane gasoline to $4.05 breaking the significant psychological $4.00 barrier as prices have shot up across the nation in response to recent unrest in the Middle East, as if Americans needed another reason to despise Muammar al-Gaddafi.
Prices are moving so fast that there is a wide variation in prices right now. Another station was offering high octane gasoline for $3.76 on the same day.
Shopping around might save you $5 per trip to the pump. Consider an online service like http://gasbuddy.com/ to check prices.Read more
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.”
