Age 16 And Over Are Eligible To Receive Covid Vaccine Starting Today! https://news.hamlethub.com/chappaqua/life/2906-age-16-and-over-are-eligible-to-receive-covid-vaccine-starting-tomorrow2906-age-16-and-over-are-eligible-to-receive-covid-vaccine-starting-tomorrow https://news.hamlethub.com/chappaqua/life/2906-age-16-and-over-are-eligible-to-receive-covid-vaccine-starting-tomorrow2906-age-16-and-over-are-eligible-to-receive-covid-vaccine-starting-tomorrow

New York state has announced that starting TODAY, Tuesday, April 6, all New Yorkers age 16 and older will be able to get vaccinated.

As universal eligibility goes into effect, NY will continue to work with local leaders to make sure all New Yorkers have access to the vaccine. But Governor Cuomo also wants to remind everyone that universal eligibility does not mean we can let our guard down. The truth is millions of our neighbors still need to get their shots and we are still in a footrace against the infection rate.

It is imperative that we do not let down our guard and that we continue exercising safety protocols. Wear a mask, social distance, remain vigilant—but most importantly, get vaccinated. It's how we'll get back to the things we love and how we protect the ones we love.

President, General Manager and Head Coach Receive Vaccine; Encourages Others to Follow Their Lead

 Members of the New York Knicks Executive Team participated in a public service announcement put together by Westchester County encouraging people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “I want to thank the New York Knicks and MSG for helping us show the public that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe.  This latest PSA is all about normalizing and encouraging the vaccine process – which is open now to most New Yorkers.  All of us miss being able to go to a Knicks game – but getting vaccinated is another step on the road to packing the stands and cheering our hometown team on again.”

   You can View the Full PSA Here 

Recorded moments after receiving their own vaccine at Westchester Community College, the members spoke about why they wanted to get the vaccine and their hope for others to sign up and make appointments, just like they did. All three were age eligible at the time of receiving their first dose at the Valhalla campus, operated by Westchester County.

Tom Thibodeau, Head Coach of the New York Knicks said: “I think it’s an important step to take, to get all of our lives back to normal…you’re not only helping yourself, you’re helping all of those people around you.”

Leon Rose, President of the New York Knicks said: “ I really think this step of getting the vaccination is a step for everybody to move forward.”

Scott Perry, General Manager of the New York Knicks said: “The more of us that are vaccinated, the better chance we have of defeating this virus together, because it’s going to take all of us together.”

This latest PSA is part of an ongoing campaign launched in January encouraging the vaccine across the County. The New York Knicks training facility is located in Greenburgh.

The Take It or Leave It “shop” (TIOLI) is a place where residents can leave usable things they do not want, and pick up things they can use.  No money is involved – everything is free.  Location: 1st left as you enter the station parking area from South Greeley Avenue.

The Take It Or Leave It will be open, weather permitting, on Saturdays, beginning April 3.  Drop-off hours are from 8:30 to11:00 am. Shoppers will be welcome from 9am to noon, although the volunteers will start packing things back into the shed at about 11:45.  Only New Castle residents may leave things, because we have limited room in the shed and everything must be stored there if not taken by noon. 

Because of the continuing Covid-19 situation, everyone, volunteer staff members included, must wear masks, and must maintain social distancing. Access to the shed will be limited, and tables will be spaced to encourage distancing. Shoppers will be asked to limit their shopping time to let everyone have a chance at our wares. Gloves and hand sanitizer will be available. Signs will indicate the drop-off area.

Please note these updated rules: NO books, clothes, cassettes, electronic equipment or things in poor condition (including chipped china) will be accepted.   NO items heavier or bulkier than one person can handle.  NO car seats, cribs, bed frames, or skis. Staff volunteers will have the right to refuse items.  Children must be supervised, and please, no strollers or dogs.

One year after New Rochelle became the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States, and Glen Island Park was turned into a drive-thru testing site by New York State, the park has been reopened to Westchester County residents.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “Glen Island was the first mobile testing site in the State and allowed us to conduct a robust testing program. Today, we’re happy to announce it has reopened to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, just in time for spring. This is great news for residents of New Rochelle, Pelham and all other County residents who frequent the park.”

Glen Island remains a Covid-19 testing center with new traffic and security patterns in place. At this time there is no parking fee, but space is limited to 300 vehicles. Residency will be checked prior to parking.

Commissioner of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation Kathy O’Connor said: “Glen Island is our largest beach and a beautiful place to walk around. We’re proud our facility was able to help slow the spread of Covid-19 in our community, and we look forward to welcoming back our neighbors in New Rochelle.”

The park is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Currently, buses and boat launches are prohibited, and the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation is not taking picnic reservations at Glen Island.

New Office Increases Feet on the Ground Service and "Main Street" Visibility in Larger High Demand Market

Grand Lux Realty (GLR), ranked by the Board of Realtors as a top 5% performing locally owned brokerage firm in Westchester County and the lower Hudson Valley, announced today the opening of the company's new Chappaqua office, located at 101 King Street, Chappaqua, NY.

"We established our headquarters in Armonk back in 2006," said Michael Levy, founder and Principal Broker, Grand Lux Realty. "This move is bittersweet, but we are not saying goodbye to Armonk or our long-time clients. While Armonk continues to be an important coverage area for us, moving our headquarters to Chappaqua was a business decision that better positions us to meet the needs of a larger high demand market."

The new Chappaqua office sits in a well-appointed and conveniently located building on King Street with plenty of parking and easy access to downtown Chappaqua, the train station, and Starbucks.

GLR offers unique strategies for sellers designed to help them position their home against their competition to maximize their "Buyer Perceived Value." The firm is always looking for more agents and offers the fastest no-fee route to 90% commission splits in the lower Hudson Valley.
