Jakriborg, Sweden, a medieval village of 500 families and a major tourism destination can fit within a relatively small area in the Village of Haverstraw. Such an exercise in scale really shows how zoning can have such a major impact on the built environment and the economy. How many Jakriborgs can your town fit? Better yet, how many Jakriborgs can a nearby Walmart parking lot fit? Now, think about the economic consequences of this. . . My inspiration for this graphic came from an article posted here at the Small Streets Blog. http://blog.smallstreets.org/post/18496915718/turn-this-parking-lot-into-a-village

‘Transformed Dog’ painted by artist Andy Golub is now at auction on ebay. To place a bid, go to the ebay listing.
As part of a public art project, The Great Painted Paw Brigade, Andy Golub of New York fame painted this fiberglass Boxer in his signature style. Mr. Golub typically paints on live female nudes in public spaces (ie. Times Square). The piece was created in winter 2012. This sculpture is one of 17 dog and cat sculptures auctioned to benefit the North Rockland Rowing Club (NRRC) and the Hi-Tor Animal Care Center, both non-profits located in the Hudson Valley of New York.
NRRC is a federally recognized not-for-profit. Final auction price is 100% tax deductible. EIN: 20-3205905
Sculpture is also available for pick-up, which will waive the shipping fee.

In Cleveland, local residents installed bike lanes and street furniture along a particularly desolate street in order to enliven their city with a more pedestrian friendly atmosphere. In the past I’ve written about pop-up urbanism as a way to create sense of place in a downtown area and spark a new interest among residents in using the street as a place to meet, exercise, relax, and be human. Tactical urbanism is a new phase of downtown citizen activism, where residents take matters into their own hands and reclaim the streets for people. Would something similar work along Main, New Main, or Broadway in downtown Haverstraw? See the short film below to catch my drift:

On May 20, 2012, over 5,000 cyclists will descend upon the Village of Haverstraw (right through Downtown) as they make their way from New York City to the top of Perkins Memorial Drive on Bear Mountain. The Gran Fondo is a 110-mile (177 km) endurance race fashioned after similar cycling events in Italy. Cyclists will climb over 8,500 vertical feet over the George Washington Bridge, the Palisades Escarpment, along the Hudson River, and finally to the top of Bear Mountain in the Highlands. A ‘Medio Fondo’ is offered to cyclists that choose to be non-competitive. See the Gran Fondo cycling route here: http://www.granfondony.com/course.php Riders/cyclists will be moving through the area between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM on Sunday, May 20, 2012. The best place to view the Gran Fondo is from New Main Street and Broadway.

The North Rockland Cash Mob started with a flash. Local resident Ellen Donovan contacted me via Facebook to get a local cash mob initiative launched and generating buzz. Well, the mob is buzzing. Now over 700 members in size, and growing by the hundreds each day, the North Rockland Cash Mob is becoming, well, unruly. The mob will descend upon the Village of Haverstraw on Saturday, April 21, 2012. The mob will convene beneath the four-faced clock at the corner of Maple Avenue, New Main Street, and Main Street at 12:00 PM (high noon!) prompt! From there, the mobsters will strut their stuff to the business that was selected via crowd-sourcing. That business, which has yet to be finalized (vote now!), will get a needed boost in business from the flush-with-cash unruly mob. We’re excited! Join us on April 21st; we’re rowdy and ready to support the local economy!
Here are more reasons how cash mobbing helps the community and brings us together.

Arguably one of the most exciting events to take place in the Village of Haverstraw is the Annual Brickyard Sprints hosted by the North Rockland Rowing Club. This year, the Brickyard Sprints will take place on Sunday, April 22, 2012 at the Haverstraw-Ossining Ferry Landing in the Village of Haverstraw (just north of the Harbors at Haverstraw on Dr. Girling Drive). The races will last from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM, although delays are likely and the racing could continue later into the day depending on weather and conditions on the Hudson River. Four crew teams from across the region will visit the Village of Haverstraw to compete in the Brickyard Sprints. The races are best viewed from the Ferry Landing parking lot, the Haverstraw Elks Club, or from Emeline Park. However, much of the action will be at the Ferry Landing. The race starting line is at Bowline Point Park and stretches down to the Ferry dock, roughly 1500 meters. Stop by and support rowing on the Hudson River! For more information, visit www.northrocklandrowingclub.org or call (845) 942-1030. See you there!

Unique, life-size dog and cat sculptures have been sighted at several locations (often in downtown storefronts) in Downtown Haverstraw! The sculptures are part of the Great Painted Paw Brigade, a public art exhibition that will culminate in a live auction on June 3, 2012. Below, is a map depicting the known locations of these dogs and cats in the Village of Haverstraw.

The waterfront promenade, currently stretching from Warren Avenue to the old chair factory peninsula and from the edge of the Tilcon rock quarry to the ferry landing, is about to grow. The Village will connect the two sections of the promenade and effectively double the walkway in length. By receiving a grant from the State of New York in 2008, the Village will spend roughly $1 Million on improvements to the existing sections and filling in the gap. When complete, the promenade will extend from the Harbors at Haverstraw, along the ferry landing, through Emeline Park, around the old chair factory, and through to Warren Avenue where it will eventually connect to the Bowline Point recreation area.

Come to the gallery opening of the Great Painted Paw Brigade, a public art project that is to begin on Friday March 2, 2012. The project is hosted by the North Rockland Rowing Club. The Great Painted Paw Brigade begins with the March 2 Gallery Opening when cat and dog sculptures are previewed by area residents and visitors. The sculptures then go out to be displayed at host businesses and restaurants for a two-month period. The artists will join their sponsors at the gallery to discuss the meaning behind their works of art. A map will be available to show you where each sculpture is on display. The project culminates in early June with a gala and public auction to deliver each sculpture to the highest bidder. A portion of the proceeds from the Great Painted Paw Brigade are shared with the Hi-Tor Animal Care Center.
