Listing of Palisades organizations

It's Time to Get Involved

November 8 saw the end of the most divisive, polarizing election cycle I can ever remember. Members of both political parties are worried about the future of their families and of the country. Many of us feel that America is changing in ways that are hard to accept. Faced with the current situation, some people are protesting in the streets. Others, dealing with reality in more practical ways, are waiting to see if the ship of state can right itself under the coming administration and find a safe haven that’s good for everyone. The one choice we should avoid making is to close our eyes to what’s happening around us.

Letter to the Editor: October 2016

Keep Palisades the Same? Stay Informed!

While scanning through the archives of our Palisades Newsletter I realized that March, 2017 will mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of 10964. I read through the first copies printed in 1977 only to find that many of the issues that faced the community back then still face us today. Traffic and speeding, concern for our historic areas and the community’s character, the future of the Palisades School, development and loss of green space, all led to the formation of multiple organizations like the Palisades Community Action Group, the West Hudson Environmental Association, the Palisades School Council, and the Palisades Historical Committee, just to name a few, whose stated goals were that of saving our hamlet. But it is the formation of the Palisades Civic Association in 1985 that would come to have the most comprehensive and powerful voice, short of incorporating as a Town, that represented the community before Town Boards and other government entities with the greatest success. Its history and accomplishments can be read in an article in this issue by Alice Gerard.

A New Civic Association

Recent stories in 10964 have dealt with two current threats to our community: the increasing size of homes, and the destruction of our historic houses. A proposal to build a huge house — originally 12,500 square feet — was first reduced in size under pressure from the Historic Areas Board of Review (HABR) and then abandoned. A charming house on Woods Road was slated to be torn down by its new owners but now there are plans to re-erect it in a new location.

In Our Backyard: Groomington Coat Factory

A white van with bright pink lettering and black paw prints speckling the side rumbles down our driveway. An hour later, our household princess, a small one-year-old Havanese, is runway ready. Washed, trimmed, brushed and fluffed, she is stress and mess free – definitely better groomed than her owners.

Update on the Palisades Cemetery

The Board of the Palisades Cemetery Association has been meeting regularly and dealing with the many tasks necessary to make the cemetery operational again. On May 16, as part of History Day at the Palisades Community Center, Carol Knudson will lead tours of the cemetery, starting at 10:00 am. We hope that many of you will take the opportunity to visit the cemetery and learn more about the former residents buried there. The grounds will have had their spring cleanup by that date, and if the flowers and foliage cooperate, you will see how beautiful the cemetery can be.

Slow Down

A few weeks back, a couple walking their dog on Washington Spring Road had to literally jump off the road to avoid being hit by a car speeding past them. This is not an unfamiliar story in Palisades. For the last ten years, at every Palisades Community Center Annual Meeting, traffic safety has been the most heated discussion item with speeding at the top of the list. In 2009, a traffic study on Oak Tree Road revealed that 85% of cars were traveling at least 10 mph over the 30 mph speed limit.

Alex Chin's Cemetery Project

The Palisades Cemetery, one of the hidden gems of the hamlet, is the final resting place for many individuals who have had a major impact on our small community as well as the entire Hudson Valley. I have chosen the Palisades Cemetery as my Girl Scout Gold Award Project because I am fascinated with the history behind the people who have been laid to rest here.

Bright Horizons Preschool

Youʼve passed it many times. Maybe it even caught your eye - that glint of white through the evergreens off Route 9W, just south of the light at Washington Spring Road. Formerly the “Tree Ring Lab” division of The Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory Campus, this single story structure is now home to Bright Horizons, a Daycare/Preschool facility accredited by the NAEYC (National Association of Education for Young Children).

The Esplanade: A Palisades Residence for Seniors

Most of us had a look at the attractive lobby and large, cosy living room of the Esplanade when we voted on November 5th. In the future, if age and debility make staying in our own homes impractical, some of us may consider the idea of moving there. Some of my friends are already residents. I decided to write this article to answer questions about the Esplanade and how it came here.

A Renaissance for Sparkill

A four-way stoplight blinks above Sparkill’s main intersection like a lullaby. Underneath, Bauer Crowley Insurance stands stolid sentry on one corner, the U.S. Post Office and a barbershop on the other. A turn of the century bank is gussied up with bright blue Chase awnings and Central Garage & Machine Works looks ready for Rosie the Riveter on nearby Union Street.

The Blood and the Breath: Okinawan Gojo Karate

If you think wealth equals well being, this is not the class for you. If you think you have to be young to exercise, this is not the class for you. If you are afraid of getting to know yourself better then this DEFINITELY is not the class for you.

This is the class for you if you want to live longer, get sick less, and control your breathing and blood pressure.
