Theme: Tim Burton in the Bronx ("Inspired by some of your favorite films") 

34 years ago, a group of individuals under the leadership of Father Louis Gigante began this yearly tradition of celebrating our community by taking back the streets on Halloween. What started from a small group of children has grown into one of the largest Halloween parades in New York City. Each year, the parade has a particular theme that captures the spirit of our community. This year's theme will be Tim Burton in the Bronx (Inspired by some of your favorite films).

This year, as always, the parade will begin on Simpson Street, between East 163rd Street and Westchester Avenue, at 12:00PM on Saturday, October 26, 2019 and end at Tiffany Plaza (Fr. Gigante Plaza), in front of St. Athanasius Church at approximately 2PM. At this time, we have our costume judging, showcasing of bands and distribution of candy to the children. Please come and join us!

A Reading and Conversation with Author David Means on Oct. 21 at Purchase College-SUNY https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/events/4559-a-reading-and-conversation-with-author-david-means4559-a-reading-and-conversation-with-author-david-means https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/events/4559-a-reading-and-conversation-with-author-david-means4559-a-reading-and-conversation-with-author-david-means

Purchase College-SUNY will present A Reading and Conversation with David Means on Monday, October 21 at 6:30 p.m.

The program, which is free and open to the public, will take place at Purchase College in the Recital Hall of the Music Building (735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, NY). The event is part of the Durst Distinguished Lecture Series, which brings leading literary figures to the Westchester community.

David Means is the author of five acclaimed collections of short stories and a novel, Hystopia, which was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. His second book of short stories, Assorted Fire Events, won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction and was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award. His fourth collection, The Spot, was selected as a 2010 Notable Book by the New York Times and won an O. Henry Prize. His stories and essays have appeared in The New YorkerHarper’s MagazineEsquireZoetropeBest American Short Stories, and many other publications. A resident of Nyack, New York, he teaches at Vassar College.

"David Means's writing combines formal inventiveness with emotional and spiritual richness,” said Anthony Domestico, associate professor of literature at Purchase College. “His characters hunt after grace and often find violence; they are frustratingly self-sabotaging and movingly resilient. He's one of our best short story writers, and his novel Hystopia and essays are just as brilliant."

The Durst Distinguished Lecture Series and the Roy and Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature are funded by the Roy and Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature Endowment. The mission of the Durst programs is to infuse the experience and intellect of leading writers into the Purchase community, while providing diverse opportunities for these writers to interact with students and influence campus life.

As a small public college, Purchase is proud to introduce students to the level of expertise provided by the Durst Distinguished Lectures. Current and past Durst Lecturers have won an impressive array of the highest level of literary honors, including National Book Awards, MacArthur Foundation Grants, Pulitzer Prizes, Guggenheim Foundation Fellowships, and Man Booker Prizes for Fiction.

The renowned novelist Edwidge Danticat, who has been named the 2019-2020 Roy and Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature, will be featured in programs on November 14-15.

Three Mayors Address Real Estate Leaders on Development Trends and Revival of Urban Centers https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/politics/4552-three-mayors-address-real-estate-leaders-on-development-trends-and-revival-of-urban-centers4552-three-mayors-address-real-estate-leaders-on-development-trends-and-revival-of-urban-centers https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/politics/4552-three-mayors-address-real-estate-leaders-on-development-trends-and-revival-of-urban-centers4552-three-mayors-address-real-estate-leaders-on-development-trends-and-revival-of-urban-centers

Mayors from Westchester’s largest cities told members of Westchester’s largest residential real estate company that the county’s cities are thriving and on the cusp of an economic development revival.

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson and White Plains Mayor Tom Roach addressed about 100 real estate professionals from Houlihan Lawrence at its offices at 800 Westchester Avenue on September 16. They discussed hundreds of units of housing either under construction or in the planning stages in the three cities. Also making their cities more attractive, they said, are major infrastructure projects such as a $90 million rehabilitation of White Plains’ Metro North train station and future plans for Penn Station access from the New Rochelle.

Deborah Doern, Regional Vice President of Houlihan Lawrence, moderated a panel discussion that followed.

“We thank the mayors of our cities for taking the time to educate Houlihan Lawrence on the exciting developments that are taking place in their cities,’’ said Doern. “Their leadership has helped to promote the economic health of Westchester which benefits us all.”

“Congratulations to Ed on a successful and productive career,” said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. “Ed’s work for the Yonkers Public Library system has been stellar, shepherding new technology and programs that enlighten and engage our community. On behalf of our Yonkers residents, I thank Ed for his dedication to our residents and libraries. I wish him a happy and healthy retirement.”
 
“YPL has excelled in the areas of programming and community engagement due to Ed’s commitment to our strategic plan. He has led major projects that have changed the landscape of YPL and positioned it for the future,” stated Board President Anietra Guzmán-Santana. “The Board of Trustees is honored to have worked with such a dedicated and passionate administrator. We wish him the best on his forthcoming retirement.”

Friday the 13th Harvest Moon Rising, Go Out and Feel the Night! https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4548-friday-the-13th-harvest-moon-rising-go-out-and-feel-the-night4548-friday-the-13th-harvest-moon-rising-go-out-and-feel-the-night https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4548-friday-the-13th-harvest-moon-rising-go-out-and-feel-the-night4548-friday-the-13th-harvest-moon-rising-go-out-and-feel-the-night

But there's a full moon risin'

Let's go dancin' in the light

We know where the music's playin'

Let's go out and feel the night

- Neil Young, Harvest Moon

Friday, September the 13th meets a Harvest Moon, that’s what The Old Farmers’ Almanac tells us. So, why not go out and feel the night? 

According to The Farmer's Almanac, this month’s full moon rises on the night of Friday, September 13, and reaches peak fullness at 12:33 a.m. EDT on the 14th.  The last time there was a full moon on Friday the 13th was in January 2006. BOO! That was 13 years ago!

What’s more, The Farmer’s Almanac ways Friday’s moon is a micro moon which is exactly the opposite of a supermoon, a full moon that occurs when the Moon is at the farthest point in its orbit around Earth, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

Learn more on The Old Farmer’s Almanac website here.

Not quite full, but breathtaking nonetheless, the moon in this post was photographed by Ridgefield resident, Rick Tango.
