Tuckahoe NY Trolley

The Tuckahoe Trolley… A great idea who’s time has come – once again

While taking photos by the train station I saw - for the first time - the Tuckahoe Trolley...pull up and let off a couple of passengers.

The Crafts Fair at Lyndhurst – Tarrytown NY

The crafts fair at Lyndhurst - Tarrytown NY - is a classic Westchester event that occurs twice a year - in the spring and again just after Labor Day. It's always high on my list of things to do-see in Westchester NY.

Sweet Grass - Tarrytown

Sweet Grass of Tarrytown NY – a wonderful dining experience in one of my favorite villages

We decided to try our luck at Sweet Grass Grill - which has gotten a lot of buzz as one of the best restaurants in Westchester since it was opened by David Starkey a little over a year ago.

Mamaroneck Harbor After Hurricane Earl

Hurricane Earl – The storm that wasn’t – at least for Westchester NY

Westchester residents were very girding themselves for the strong possibility of a major tropical storm or the remote possibility of a level one hurricane. Mamaroneck NY - which includes Larchmont Village - being on the Long Island Sound was reight in the cross-hairs.

Tarrytown NY - vintage architecture

Tarrytown NY – The “Wish Tree”

Suddenly - right in front of me is this tree. It's an ordinary tree like all the others on Main Street. I looked at the pieces of paper and they all had writing scribbled on them. Each note began with "I wish." Then on the trunk of the tree was a little box which held the paper pieces and a pen - and on the box it said "Wish Tree."
