The article confidently declares that Westchester Hudson River villages of Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Tarrytown, Irvington and the like are becoming enclaves of that same Bohemian lifestyle that brought downtrodden Brooklyn back to life. This article is particularly sad because it fully ignores these towns’ history, while somehow comparing the “transformation” of these places to Brooklyn.

The article highlights that … More Haverstraw in the Toronto Sun

I have sad news to report. Amid the depressed regional and national economy, another bright spot in Haverstraw is no more. The New York Water Taxi service, that ferries commuters between Haverstraw, Yonkers, and Lower Manhattan, is facing the budgetary chopping block. Unless the State Legislature can find funds to support the ferry’s dwindling on-board … More Water Taxi to Suspend Service from Haverstraw
