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.

Firehouse Redact

I have been reading a great deal of and about Henry James recently and just finished Colm Toibin’s The Master, his virtuoso fictional biography of James, with the result that I am more acutely attuned than usual to the powers of place. So maybe it’s just me, but it does seem that some spaces have lives of their own, with their own consciousness, exerting their own influence on the human activities occurring within them. Not a haunting, exactly, but a living, breathing entity giving shelter and replenishment to those who enter. Take, for example, the old firehouse in Sparkill, an unprepossessing, two-story building tucked between a mechanics garage and a former dry cleaning establishment on a snippet of a street that also once had within my own living memory a shoe repair place, long since gone. Gone as have many businesses come and gone since the shuttering of the Sparkill train station over fifty years ago. The old firehouse, however, is a place that insists on living.
