The skies over New Rochelle will be a little bit brighter (by about16%) tonight as the moon will be at perigee when the moon's elliptical orbit brings it closest to earth. (Some of you may remember last years Super-Moon)
Time for the full moon phase is at 11:35 eastern time, however watching the moon rise just after the sun has set will be sure to offer some majestic views and vistas. So, enjoy your Cinco de Mayo, cheer on the Kentucky Derby, then go out and enjoy nature's display.
The moon will rise in the east and if you're lucky enough to get a picture of it, send it along to Talk of the Sound - official sponsor of nature!Read more
A Talk of the Sound reader sends along photos of the famed New Rochelle parrots who made an appearance this weekend in downtown New Rochelle. The Avalon East is the building in the background. Photos courtesy of MM.Read more
I just got a request about a casting call for a home renovation/makeover show in the NYC area where they would like to cast someone from the New Rochelle area to be in the show. In the show they are going to be remodeling/remaking one room (for free) so if you have a room in your home that just doesn't quite fit.
They want someone who has a great home with one problematic room they can't quite figure out. The uglier the room, the better.
Below is the actual casting call:
Have you ever wanted to be one of those lucky people who get a home makeover on national television?
Do you (or someone you know) have a bland or boring room? Does it not reflect your personality or style? Does it fill you with shame? We're looking for unique and interesting homeowners, who have a boring room they'd like to see transformed.
Next time, maybe try a clothes line.
New Rochelle firefighters, responding to a report of the smell of smoke in a house on Friday, received no response after knocking loudly on the front door at 110 Chauncey Avenue. Following protocol they broke down the door to gain access to the consternation of a person in the home who, for reasons still not clear, failed to respond to the loud pounding on the door to their house.
A confrontation ensued. Additional police, including the Critical Incident Unit, were called to the scene but the matter was resolved.Read more
