A Bit of Victory on Route 9 Bridge

Now that the frame of the new walking/cycling bridge over the Thruway has been moved into place, the Thruway Authority has installed a temporary barrier protected walkway through the work zone along the west side of Broadway. The initial plan for this construction phase had the sidewalk closed and offered no direct, safe alternative.

Thank you to the Village of Tarrytown, County Legislator David Imamura, Assembly Member Shimsky, Governor Hochul and the Thruway Authority for making this happen.

Ghost Bike is Back (for Now)

Luis Zhizhpon's ghost bike has been reinstalled in observance of the anniversary of Luis' death on June 25, 2012. It should be in place for about a month.

Curb Enthusiasm

Think about this... How do sidewalks make our lives better? Now, how do curbs make our lives better?

Well, Tarrytown is spending big bucks building curbs in the Miller Park neighborhood. The same neighborhood that lacks sidewalks in several locations. Do you think Tarrytown has their priorities straight? It will be a good idea to communicate your priorities to the Village:
