New Rochelle Farms, the much-anticipated new supermarket and laundromat on North Avenue and Lincoln Avenue, celebrated its grand opening on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.

The 10,000 square-foot grocery store, which includes an attached laundromat, features a variety of fresh and prepared foods, seafood counter, butcher section, deli, salad bar area, juice bar and coffee bar. The product selection contains a variety of organic, vegan and gluten-free product providing the community with healthy and delicious options. The laundromat uses the latest water-efficient machinery and is capable of accepting various payment methods including debit, credit and contactless ApplePay.

Eagerly awaited by area residents, the grocery store fulfills the community’s need for a quality food market along this stretch of North Avenue. Boosting convenience, New Rochelle Farms is accessible via the new CircuitNR, a complimentary, on-demand electric shuttle service transporting riders along multiple routes throughout the downtown area.

Along with co-owners Jose Filipe and Jesus Diaz, the grand opening ceremony featured New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson, Deputy Mayor and District 3 Council Member Yadira Ramos-Herbert and Westchester County Legislator Damon Maher. Speaking on behalf of New Rochelle Farms, Jose Filipe thanked their families, including his parents who flew in from Portugal, their support team and the City of New Rochelle. “Everyone knows how important it is for a neighborhood to be home to a high-quality supermarket,” said Jose Filipe, co-owner of New Rochelle Farms. “It’s a responsibility we take very seriously, and New Rochelle Farms stands ready to meet and exceed the community’s expectations. We look forward to serving the people of New Rochelle.”

“New Rochelle Farms serves a vital need in our community by providing convenient access to fresh foods for thousands of residents in surrounding neighborhoods, as well as our fast-growing downtown and North Avenue corridor,” said New Rochelle Mayor  Noam Bramson. “We are pleased to welcome this highly-anticipated addition to our city.” 

The arrival of New Rochelle Farms advances the revitalization of the Lincoln Avenue corridor. District 3 Council Member Yadira Ramos-Herbert asserts, "It is a very exciting time for the Lincoln Avenue corridor. We welcome the opening of New Rochelle Farms as the next in a series of vital steps to move our community in a positive and vibrant direction."

“The opening of New Rochelle Farms not only brings access to fresh foods to the Lincoln Avenue corridor but brings much needed employment opportunities to local residents,” said Robert Hayes, President of the Chamber of Commerce. “Their unique combination of supermarket and laundromat will invigorate the area.”

Damon Maher noted New Rochelle Farms is participating in the Take a Bag/Leave a Bag Initiative; a project to help make reusable bags available to everyone who may need one, created by Bedford 2020’s Greenlight Award program.

T. Abillama & Associates is credited with the design and planning of this facility which incorporates many repurposed materials to reduce carbon-footprint and latest energy efficient design.

The city’s overall downtown revitalization initiative – undertaken through a Master Developer Agreement with RXR Realty -- is on track to achieve its goal of bringing some $4 billion in new investment into the area.

Let NY Vote Celebrates as NYS Senate Passes Automatic Voter Registration https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/politics/4689-let-ny-vote-celebrates-as-nys-senate-passes-automatic-voter-registration4689-let-ny-vote-celebrates-as-nys-senate-passes-automatic-voter-registration https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/politics/4689-let-ny-vote-celebrates-as-nys-senate-passes-automatic-voter-registration4689-let-ny-vote-celebrates-as-nys-senate-passes-automatic-voter-registration

Let NY Vote Celebrates as NYS Senate Passes Automatic Voter Registration - Coalition urges Assembly to follow suit

Today, the New York State Senate passed Automatic Voter Registration (AVR): a process that would register or pre-register eligible New Yorkers to vote when they interact with a government agency (i.e., the DMV, Department of Health), unless they opt out. AVR was part of package of election reform bills that included poll sites on college campuses and reforms to early voting.

Currently, there are 1.1 million New Yorkers who are eligible to vote, but remain unregistered. AVR would streamline the registration process, making it easier for eligible New Yorkers to vote. Since 2015, 16 states and Washington DC have already implemented some form of AVR.

"It is exciting that the Let NY Vote coalition started 2020 the same way we did in 2019: by standing with the State Senate as our priorities passed. Automatic voter registration will streamline the way eligible New Yorkers register to vote, while providing adequate safeguards to protect the most vulnerable populations. Now the Assembly must follow the Senate's lead and bring New York in line with the 16 other states that already have some form of AVR. We can't wait, it's time to let New York vote!" said Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause/NY and co-founder of Let NY Vote.

In January 2019, the Let NY Vote coalition led the successful campaign to overhaul the state's outdated and antiquated voting laws. The Legislature passed - and Governor Cuomo signed into law -- early voting, consolidation of primaries, pre-registration of 16 and 17 year olds, and registration portability, which allows New Yorkers who move within the state to have their voter registration automatically updated via the USPS.

Automatic Voter Registration benefits historically disenfranchised communities like veterans, low-income people who have regular contact with the government, and young people who are often transient. This year, 1 in 10 Generation Z and close to one third of Millennials will be eligible voters in the country. Studies show that voting is habit forming: a person is more likely to vote in the next election if they voted in the one prior. By making voter registration opt-out, instead of opt-in, AVR increases registration rates and encourages eligible voters to participate in our elections. AVR also keeps the voter rolls more accurate, since voters update their registration information (like their address) when they interact with state agencies.

Automatic voter registration will also save money by cutting down on mail costs since all transfers are electronic. This will also reduce handwritten errors and mistakes from election officials.

"Stringent voting laws in New York have historically made our state one of the hardest places for people to cast a vote," said Perry Grossman, Senior Staff Attorney for the New York Civil Liberties Union's voting rights project. "Obstacles to the polls particularly impact low-income New Yorkers of color and have made for an exclusive democracy that represents some rather than all. With today's passage, New York has taken an enormous step forward in creating a more inclusive democracy by making it much easier for people to vote," said Erika Lorshbough, Asst. Dir. for Legislative Affairs at NYCLU.

"We are excited to see that the State Senate is recognizing the importance of expanding our democracy with this package on the first day of session. In particular, automatic voter registration and mandating on campus poll sites are key steps to breaking down barriers to participation for young voters. We hope that this is followed by continued action to protect youth voting rights and expand democracy for the next generation of voters," said Brianna Cea, CEO and Co-Founder of Generation Vote.

"Indivisible groups across New York are thrilled that the Senate has passed automatic voter registration. This measure is critical to making New York a leader in voting rights nationwide, during a time when voter suppression and election security are national concerns," said Lauren Boc, the State Policy Manager of Indivisible Project.

"We are proud to once again be a part of passing a historic package of election reforms to modernize voting in New York State. This package of reforms will further empower voters and ensure maximum voting accessibility in all regions of New York State. Thank you to the Senate for passing these comprehensive voting rights reforms," said Jennifer Wilson, Deputy Director of the League of Women Voters of New York State.

"For generations, communities of color have suffered from a voter registration gap that has reinforced our under-representation in New York's political system," said Javier H. Valdés, Co-Executive Director of Make the Road New York. "Automatic voter registration will be a key tool for addressing that deficit and ensuring that our communities are registered and heard."

"The New York Senate should be commended for leading the way on democracy reform. The combination of automatic voter registration, early voting and other key election reforms implemented in New York will break down barriers to voting and provide a path for all communities to have a voice in our democracy. We urge members of Congress to take note of the progress being made in New York and enact these reforms on the national level by passing the For the People Act (HR 1)," said Christine Wood, Democracy Organizer at Public Citizen.

"Automatic Voter Registration is the next important step in electoral reform. Our democracy is strengthened when we expand enrollment and increase voter participation. I applaud this important reform and call on the state legislature to make it law," said Stuart Appelbaum, President of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU).

"We do not have to register for free speech rights nor do we have to register for the right to a fair trial. So, why should we have to register to be permitted to vote? It makes no sense. AVR is long overdue," said Michael Quackenbush of Dutchess county Progressive Alliance.

"Last year, New York saw a number of crucial pro-democracy reforms become law and we are pleased to see that work continue in 2020 with the passing of Automatic Voter Registration in the Senate, today. This law will allow more voters to participate in the electoral process. In states where this reform has been implemented, voting rolls have become more accurate, and states have saved money. With some of the lowest voter turnout numbers in the country, New York must take all possible steps to make voting more accessible," said Betsy Gotbaum, Executive Director of Citizens Union.

"Why are we letting a piece of paper--the voter registration form--stand in the way of allowing citizens to participate in democracy? If you are eligible to vote, you should be able to vote. Voters shouldn't have to jump though hoops just to exercise their fundamental rights. Automatic Voter Registration serves to eliminate one of the biggest hoops and helps to bring more people into our democracy," said Erica Cohen of Brooklyn Voters Alliance.

"Historically, New York's antiquated election laws barred low-income voters, voters of color, and newly naturalized voters from exercising their rights and ultimately, from accessing power. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are eligible to register to vote at higher rates that many other naturalized groups -- but a lack of language access, tailored resources, and direct outreach prevent many would-be voters from fully participating in our democracy," said Amy Torres, Director of Policy & Advocacy at the Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC). "Last year, the legislature closed a historic wave of voting reforms with a promise to pass Automatic Voter Registration at the start of session. Today's package of voting bills demonstrates that New York is not yet finished passing bold, progressive reforms that unlock political potential for people across the state."

Background

The Let NY Vote Coalition is a statewide network of over 175 member organizations ranging from 32BJ, to NAACP New York to New York State Indivisible. Full coalition list here.

The Let NY Vote coalition has been demanding common sense voting reform in New York for years such as:

  • Early Voting (enacted in law): in place in 37 other states and now New York, allowing citizens to cast ballots in person days, sometimes weeks, before an election.
  • Pre-registration of 16 and 17-year-olds (enacted in law): 13 states plus DC allow for pre-registration for voting at 16 and 17 years old. Pre-registration increases the likelihood of voter participation among young adults. Engaging potential voters at a young age and bringing them into the voting process early helps create lifelong voters.
  • Consolidation of Primary Dates (enacted in law): Currently New York has two primary days in June and September, confusing voters. New York is the only state with two primaries.
  • Vote by mail (passed, constitutional amendment required): No eligible voter should have to provide a reason to be able to vote absentee.
  • Same day registration (passed, constitutional amendment required): 18 states and DC have Same Day Registration. Same Day Registration enables voters to register and vote at the same time and increases voter turnout.
  • Flexibility to Change Party Affiliation (passed): New York has the most restrictive deadline in the country, locking out hundreds of thousands of voters during the primaries. The change of party deadline must be shortened to allow people to make an informed decision.
  • Voting Rights for People on Parole: the restoration of voting rights for people on parole needs to be codified in law, so that restoration becomes an automatic process.

New York Botanical Gardens hosts A Gathering of Stones: Dan Snow on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 from 1 PM – 3 PM

Stone underlies all earthly life. It is grist for loam and the bedrock of megacities. But because it's so ubiquitous, it tends to disappear in plain sight. Dan Snow's work brings stone into sharp focus by elevating this humble, natural material to new heights. His hand-crafted, site-specific dry stone installations fuse environment and art, offering new perspectives on both. Dan's lushly illustrated talk will trace his long career in partnership with Earth's most basic elements.

An outdoor craftsman and art maker, Dan Snow creates practical landscape structures and playful environmental artworks in dry stone. A life-long Vermonter, Dan has traveled widely for more than four decades producing public and private site specific installations.
