Kingsland Comments

Saturday, 7/22, saw a strong turnout in Kingsland Point Park of people eager to tell Westchester County Executive George Latimer and Sleepy Hollow Mayor Martin Rutyna what they want to see the park be like. The importance (and the great weather) got about 80 people to attend.

Swimming access to the Hudson River was a frequent request.

We suggested an easy way to make it safe to walk, cycle and wheelchair to this amazing park. Have motor vehicles access the parking lot via Legend Dr in Edge on Hudson, then convert the existing driveway into the RiverWalk. The idea was well received. Here's how it works:

Morse is Staying Put

The Tarrytown school district has decided to keep Morse school where it is. This is good news for the environment, equity and the economy of Downtown Sleepy Hollow.

Peace in Patriots Park

Parks are great places to relax and enjoy life. It had been hard to do that in Patriots Park because cars were allowed to drive through it. We are so glad to say that Tarrytown's Trustees have kicked cars out of Patriots. Portable metal barriers have been placed in the two driveway entrances. Now parents can let kids play without having to worry about them getting crushed.

There are exceptions for vendors setting up / taking down the farmers market on Saturdays, as well as church attendees who use the park as a parking lot on Sundays. We hope the Village's next step is taking into account that church parishioners can park their motor vehicles in the school parking lots across the street, just like farmers market attendees do.

Sometimes the barriers have been found in the open position or blocking the sidewalk. As we frequently say on social media: "If you see something, do something."
