When CVS came before the New Rochelle Zoning Board of Appeals, the company promised to put up surveillance video cameras outside their location at 222 North Avenue. Had they done so they might have been able to help police identify the vandals who spray painted various walls and doors in downtown New Rochelle over the holiday weekend.

There is now graffiti on the CVS, the carpet store, the wall in the Library parking lot and the New Rochelle library.

Let us not look at this as a negative, but rather in a positive light. As the Mayor, or Ralph from NR Bid might point out, we are to look at the Downtown business district as in an always improving state. Now, there is ART WORK for the masses, at no cost to them. How can this be a bad thing, given the current economic conditions in which we find ourselves? It begs pointing out that these aforementioned masses are comprised, among others, by homeless folk, the impecunious, and those who rely on panhandling for their meager subsistence. As other municipalities thrive, introducing nationally known anchor stores, New Rochelle reinforces its long-time tradition as a "City of the Arts."
