  • Shovels are in the ground!

    About a dozen Port Chester School District and Park Avenue Elementary School officials lined up on Wednesday, July 18, to commence a ceremony many have eagerly anticipated for years. 

  • Latimer’s on a mission to end bridge strikes

    County Executive George Latimer isn’t taking no for an answer when it comes to resolving bridge strikes on Westchester parkways. That kind of attitude suits Village of Rye Brook officials just fine because the majority of those incidents are on the Hutchinson River Parkway and, of those, most are at the King Street Bridge in Rye Brook.

  • Finding home ‘In the Heights’

    Home is where the heart is, and everyone has a unique path in finding it. That’s the clear message the Port Chester Council for the Arts young adult cast is trying to send in this summer show produced in cooperation with the Port Chester Recreation Department.

  • From script to screen

    Port Chester’s Bethesda Baptist Church was out of its usual order late last week. A film crew took the place of the clergy, its regular congregation was replaced with actors, and the church’s usual musician adopted the role of pastor.

  • Letter: Picketers’ 25th anniversary present to Port Chester
    On July 16, 1993, a group of residents decided that they would get rid of a scourge that had come to Port Chester. The scourge was the Diamond Club on Midland Avenue which was a topless bar that was owned by the notorious Gambino Mafia Family. It began with over 100 residents, including clergy, who were determined to rid our village of it.
  • I was dismayed, but not shocked, at two major votes by the Port Chester Board of Education at their last meeting on July 3. One decision I predicted and the second one, honestly, caught me off guard. On the predicted decision, I told my friends and family that Carolee Brakewood, Chris Wolff and Lou Russo, the majority on the board, would never support Anne Capeci or Tom Corbia for president or vice-president of the board. 
  • Historic Beautiful People: William Ward
    In honor of Port Chester’s 150th birthday celebration, we would like to honor someone who was alive and contributing greatly to our village in 1868: William Ward. Special thanks go to Jean Sapione, whose wonderfully written article about Ward in the “Village Views” Spring 1992 edition, provided valuable information and insight. 
  • I’ve been wondering what would be my personal tipping point for being absolutely disgusted with the political leadership of New York.

    Was it when Governor Eliot Spitzer resigned in disgrace? Or Comptroller Alan Hevesi? Or Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver? Or State Senate President Dean Skelos? Or Attorney General Eric Schneiderman? Or the innumerable Assemblymen and Assemblywomen and State Senators forced to resign or sitting in prison?
