National Learn to Row Day at the Haverstraw Ferry Landing at Dr. Girling Drive, Haverstraw, NY.

Each year, the North Rockland Rowing Club hosts Learn to Row Day to expose more New Yorkers and Rocklanders to the sport of rowing or crew. Refine your technique on a rowing machine and/or get in a boat to learn the basics. The Club will take you out on the Hudson River to experience rowing firsthand! Don’t worry, they take numerous safety precautions when introducing beginners to the sport. This is a great event for families and children, as well as adults that are looking for new ways to stay fit.

As part of the Keep Rockland Beautiful-sponsored Great American Cleanup 2013, we will meet for a few hours in the Village (Downtown and the Greenway) to do some spring cleaning. Bring plants to plant, gloves, and a trash picking attitude.

When? April 14, 2013 at 10:00AM | Where? The Four-faced Clock @ New Main Street & Maple Avenue

Check out the pics from 2012 and 2013 below (thanks to Alex Guarino and Tom McGuire for taking them – that’s why they’re not in the pictures!):

Governor Cuomo released renderings of his proposed mega bridge. The bridge will be twice as wide as the existing Tappan Zee Bridge, even though traffic over the span has been declining since 2004 (a nationwide phenomenon). Oddly enough, it is to be the widest highway bridge in the world. The video rendering, below, appears to include a “ghost train” at around 1:33, which is an insult to Rockland as the County continues to stagnate economically due to its lack of infrastructure and connections to major job markets. Cuomo eliminated planning for rail over the span roughly one year ago. Someone explain to me how this project isn’t a massive taxpayer gift to the highway lobby? Dear New York State, may we please enter the 21st Century? We’re already in its second decade! Slick back your hair, put on a poodle dress and feast your eyes on this 1950s-era Eisenhower masterpiece . . .

 

And . . . the State ought to be thinking about expanding existing transit that we have. Imagine what we could have done with $7 Billion?

In other news, the Chair Factory site just north of Emeline Park in the Village of Haverstraw is to become a major staging area for Tappan Zee Bridge construction activities. Iron workers will fabricate massive bridge sections at the site and then float these components by barge to the Tappan Zee. Some State officials expect the Village to be flooded with iron workers and others working on the bridge project. The staging area will effectively tie up future development on the Chair Factor site (originally intended to become Phase III of Ginsburg Development’s waterfront revitalization project) until at least 2019. The original Tappan Zee Bridge components were fabricated in dry dock at the former clay pit that now is home to a deep water harbor, Haverstraw Marina. Both bridges, new and old, was and will be born in Haverstraw.
