It sounds obvious – with a river like the Hudson River hugging the western border of our county -  that we have to have a significant police and rescue presence along the river – but I seldom gave that presence much thought.  Recently there have been a couple of “jumpers” – people threatening to jump off the Tappan Zee Bridge.  But even then – I was more preoccupied with the plight of someone who would go over the edge like that.  I wasn’t necessarily thinking about the police presence on the river specifically.  I just assumed that “they” -whoever “they” were would try and talk that poor soul out of ending it all.   No more.    A few weeks ago I was walking on the Tarrytown River Walk – I happened along some of the police and rescue boats.  There they were – solid proof of law enforcem...

Last night I decided to spend some quality time at Coffee Labs on Main Street in Tarrytown NY. after dinner.  It is often a very nice place to relax, grab some bandwidth and enjoy the live music that is offered on Friday and Saturday nights.  I arrived fairly late because I had gone out to dinner with friends, but the band was still playing.  They were from the Lagond  Music School located in Elmsford NY.  The performers were all very young to my middle-aged eyes and the quality of the music was excellent. The Lagond Music School is a not-for-profit school dedicated to music education and performance. They teach contemporary music with the same rigor that is generally ascribed to classical training.  The focus is definitely contemporary with jazz, Latin, funk and rock listed as primary...

There are times when the light is just right and the blooms are at their peak.  Sometimes you just get lucky.  But then again – The Tarrytown NY Rivere walk provides  me with a terrific subject.  If I took bad pictures with all that going for me – I should just stop taking photos altogether.   In any case, Jade, Tundra and I decided to take a walk along the River Walk around 6:00 PM  about 10 days ago.  People were out.  There was plenty of activity  – and who can blame them?   Some areas just lend themselves to gatherings.  This is one of them. Whether fishing, strolling, walking the dogs or reading on a bench – people can’t help but congregate in such a wonderful outdoor “room.”  And if you live at Hudson Harbor – this is truly your back yard.         © 2011 – Ruthmarie G.

cs: Fotos on the Fly, Tarrytown, Walkable Neighborhoods in Westchester, Walking Trails in Westchester County Leave A Comment The other day I  found myself near Tarrytown in early the evening and I decided to see what the was happening on the River Walk.  When public monies go into planning a project -it is always hoped that the public will enjoy the space.  Reclaiming the shore along the Hudson for a long River Walk was a brilliant idea and I was pleased to see that the public was taking full advantage of the weather and the area.  There were many people walking, sitting, chatting and quite a few were taking advantage of the fishing.  To think that when I was a child we thought the Hudson was polluted beyond repair.  I found myself enjoying the scene so much that I actually spent over a...

It was nice to see that the rain that was literally drenching the area had come to an end.  Friday – was a blustery March day with both clouds and sun.  Luckily, I was able to enjoy a bit of a walk with my camera in tow.  I had an errand at Hudson Harbor and decided to take a walk on the new portion of the Westchester River Walk in Tarrytown NY.   The River Walk is an ambitious plan to create a linear park and walking trail along the Hudson River that extends from the northern tip of the county in Peekskill to Yonkers at the border of the Bronx.  This portion has just been constructed.  I was there a couple of years ago before the plan had come to life. I was lucky enough to get the New York City Skyline with the base of the Tappan Zee Bridge serving as a “frame.  Looking north I got a ...

The Westchester Christmas Lights displays are now starting to “mature.”  Homes and businesses which were obviously works in progress last week have now bloomed into major displays.  Saturday night I came across a particularly strong Christmas display in Tarrytown NY on Route 9. It was at the front of the Reformed Church – which is in and of itself a Tarrytown monument.  Instead of the typical Creche scenes associated with churches, this particular display had a festive holiday twist to it.  I got off a couple of good shots (OK I’m trying to do better with night photography – it is a work in progress.)  But still – I think this captures the spirit of the display: © 2010 – Ruthmarie G.

High end specialty retail is not limited to NYC.  Westchester has its share of unqiue boutiques and Bark & Meow of Tarrytown is the perfect place to find a great gift for your favorite canine or feline member of the family.   Laura Haupt, the owner has her two pets acting as the wecloming committee.  Juno wasn’t there the day I was but Sachi – the beautiful Shiba Inu was at the door welcoming me.   Like most Shiba’s, Sachi exudes confidence and was obviously delighted to see me… The store is now decked out for the Holiday Season with toys and treats for dogs and cats. There is something for everyone here.  Cats have their own special boutique section while much of the store is dedicated to the needs of dogs.  Holiday collars abound – Jade, Tundra and Buddy are now sporting theirs.   Th...
