Glad I am a vegetarian. The crap they inject the animals with, hormones, antibiotics, vaccinations,Read More and the the crap these animals are eating have all have all been treated with toxic pesticides, and other chemicals. You are what you eat.

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

IThe new Mrs Green's in Tarrytown does not seem to be doing well. Should have been a Trader Joe's!
Bob Zahm March 29, 2014 at 12:14 am
@Bruce Apar - would certainly consider it if that was true, but having been here only for 12 years,Read More I'd never qualify.
Nora Mackenzie March 29, 2014 at 05:09 pm
I'm very sorry that Mrs. Green's did not consider expanding into Chappaqua when we really need aRead More grocery story, not a Walgreens. Yes, we can go into Mt. Kisco but they made a mess of the expansion in that store.
Shawn McDonald March 20, 2014 at 09:31 am
Just what we need, another chain outfit to help put the local, family-owned diners and bakeries outRead More of business.
rex merrins March 20, 2014 at 12:21 pm
its more like a cafe than a bakery I like rockland bakery. I LIKE the neighborhood bakeriesRead More rockland and even the bakeies in stop and shop and shop rite. Fairway dose not have a good bakery I dont even shop at the shops its very boring mall in comparison to Palisades Garden State Plaza and Bergen town center

I'll stick with Panera. Thanks though.

I no longer patronize restaurants that I went to each morning, Strawberry Place, for example. IRead More stopped using the Nyack library. I use the library in Nanuet or Piermont. The parking meter is costing Nyack business place a great deal of lost patronige
willie 6 March 18, 2014 at 11:06 am
Nyack Village seems to use parking revenue for Village expenses. until they figure out a way to beRead More accommodating to visitors ,they will continue to lose visitors. Beware of those RUDE NPA agents.

Has anyone looked at the sidewalks in front of these establishments on Main Street, especially theRead More eating and drinking venues. The streets are disgusting. Store owners need to be required to sweep/cleanup in front of their places at least three times a day: morning, noon, and evening. It appears that the sweeping is done only in the mornings when they open, if then. The accumulation of cigarette butts, burnt matches, cups, general litter, etc., is enough to cause a person to gag. Perhaps those establishments can start there. The sidewalks in the front of these stores rival the garbage you see on Manhattan streets. I always wonder how people can sit and eat in the sidewalk outdoor cafe setups with the litter and garbage under foot and within eye sight. 'Beautify Nyack' should begin with clean up Nyack first!

Sir....Perhaps emr did not mean that literally...but I did find that there is concern by utilityRead More companies about aging systems in older cities, "what to do about aging natural gas mains, many of them in difficult-to-access locations in older urban areas, which have deteriorated and are prone to leaking".....here's one NY example: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/energy/2014/03/140312-east-harlem-explosion-natural-gas-leaks-risk/
Theresa Flora March 11, 2014 at 02:25 pm
jo, we're very much outnumbered here in NY--by liberals and those looking for a handout. The cityRead More just elected de Blasio, and look what he's doing to charter schools. By the way, the powerful teachers union endorsed him. And I believe Cuomo will be re-elected. NY is a dysfunctional, overtaxed, nanny/welfare state, and sadly, I think the only solution is to get out. Leave the liberals with their mess.
brandie March 11, 2014 at 03:04 pm
Theresa as for Cuomo i think you may be wrong, he is in trouble and just doesn,t know it yet and theRead More only thing that will keep him is who the Republicans run against him. Astorino is not going to beat him and i do not know of any one else who could at this time.
Theresa Flora March 11, 2014 at 07:30 pm
Just like when no one thought Obama could get re-elected.

The problem with NYS is that it does not provide any incentives for local Planning or Zoning BoardsRead More to approve the very simple applications that come before them for approval or denial, or on the applications that are to set up, expand, or bring into the area a business of any kind. NYS is the most ANTI BUSINESS state you can live in, and I am not saying this to take any digs at the current Political Party that is in POWER, or at the economic goals that perhaps our current Governor is trying to achieve. NYS has been a very tough state to want to risk opening up a business in, whether you are that small shop keeper, or that business that can hire more than 50 people. NYS has always paid a blind eye and a deaf ear towards all request to help the small main street merchant wanting to either take a chance or survive. Never have I ever been exposed to a conversation held with a level of Government that is above both the local or County level, where when I got off the phone I felt like I could accomplish going forward with my dream to open up a business in NYS. NYS dead last for a reason! NYS JUST CAN"T AFFORD BEING DEAD LAST!

As a Small Business Owner in Westchester I'm disappointed ,as the 2 Parties bicker about who's faultRead More it is ..the problem get's worse by the day...the solution is in OUR HANDS !.. BUY LOCAL!,and whenever possible BUY AMERICAN !..As long as everyone longs for the Cheap Foreign crap, and flocks to the Big Box Discount Stores that deal in it,this country will never Recover..go ahead Shop online,give it to Amazon or whoever.. and you wonder why you can't find a Job? or the one you have doesn't pay what it used to..look into Income inequality..and maybe check out Robert Reich's documentary on the subject..We as Americans need to take responsibility for our Actions and the Consequences of those actions..We can't keep looking for SOMEONE ELSE OR THE GOVT to fix our Problems..Can't you see how Futile an Endeavor that is ? ..if this Country is to be Fixed it has to come from Mainstreet USA..not Congress or the White House, regardless of the governing Party whether they be Democrat, Republican,Independent ect..It was people in my area passing by my Store on their way to Walmart,Target, the Internet ect that made for a lousy Holiday Shopping Season,Not a republican or a Democrat.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day speaks about Novartis.
ADK January 24, 2014 at 02:01 pm
the challenge is that the compensation needed to attract the right people is at odds with currentRead More thinking...positions like these, where success can be objectively measured, require a pay for performance approach. I know Ed Day very well and respect him immensely, but Im not sure that an $85,000 salary will attract a large pool of qualified candidates...there are administrative assistants and mid level staffers throughout towm and county government, with no way to affect the "bottom line" that make significantly more...
Pat Godfrey January 24, 2014 at 02:58 pm
This announcement is devastating. Businesses are leaving left and right because they can do the sameRead More business in other states for a lot less. That is the reality. Our taxes are to high and is chasing businesses away. How is the county going to recover the lost taxes from theses businesses leaving? Simple, do what they always do, raise the residents taxes.

EXCELLENT location for the chicken slaughter house!

ADK January 22, 2014 at 07:46 pm
This is devastating news, that will have a ripple effect throughout the community...of all theRead More "most important" issues that Ed Day has to deal with, undoing the years of neglect caused by the previous administrations lack of a cohesive strategy toward retaining and expanding our business base may be at the top of the list. Without a vibrant economic community turning our county around will be nearly impossible.
Watchdog January 23, 2014 at 08:29 am
More reason to get rid of these career politicians who tax the hell out of businesses and familiesRead More to finance their crooked endeavors and then like Alden Wolfe pretend to wonder why these companies are leaving and we are replacing them with ballparks and chicken slaughter houses. Are you serious Mr. Wolfe? On another side, I do smell a movement afoot with the election of Ed Day.

Woman's Liberation was af failed experiment . No one was liberated, all are stressed. Two peopleRead More cannot do three jobs and the most important job, raising your kids, is left to some of the lowest paid workers in society. NYS standards for home day care are abysmal. 44% of single moms are in poverty.

Elmer I am ok with u not going to the Lexington. FYI, restaurant stakeout was reality tv as in noRead More truth. I was paid for the hour commercial. Oh, by the way the show is about service not unsanitary conditions. Sounds to me as if u didn't even see the show.

I had a recent experience at Lexington Pizza a couple weekends ago. About 6 adults + 4Read More pre-schoolers went in after a round at Monster Golf. Place looked spotless and we all had a great pizza lunch. No hesitation on going back.
