Word Of The Week: RE-CALIBRATE   I love the power of the right word. This series came about because time and time again I noticed how well the 'right' word conveyed an economy of thought, while saving your from a bunch of wrong, and mediocre words. People seemed to 'hear' things differently-BETTER! It also clarifies and elevates things in my own mind. The Word Of The Week is RE-CALIBRATE. From the verb CALIBRATE, it's a powerful, and extraordinarily scientific word. It's goal is PRECISION and ACCURACY. It is MEASURED and SPECIFIC; there is nothing casual or fleeting about it. One web definition is 'to make fine adjustments', another is ' the act of checking or adjusting the accuracy of a measuring instrument'. My favorite-and most compelling is ' adjust (experimental results) to take ex...

One of the most exciting new construction developments is Hudson Harbor – Tarrytown NY.   I’m not normally a big fan of modern architecture, but I have to say that I really love the construction of this complex with its use of fieldstone and old wood beams.  They made it look like Stone Barns which is quite an accomplishment.  But what really makes its special are the views. So after we saw the development, I went for a walk on the RiverWalk that runs right behind the complex.  (The complex – now in Phase II is right on the river.) and took some photos.  Basically I started with a wide-angle lens and moved to  a tele photo. The first picture is of the Tappan Zee Bridge.  The Manhattan skyline can be faintly seen under the bridge with the wide angle. The second picture was with a zoom le...

Union Church of Pocantico Hills has a rich history.  Part of the Historic Hudson Valley  – the church has is closely associated with the Rockefeller family.  It is also very famous for its stained glass windows  by Matisse and Chagall.   From the outside, the church is a chapel-sized field stone structure. Something of a classic Tudor.  But the interior windows are simply breathtaking.  The rose window by Matisse, was his last work of art.   The Chagall windows came later.  All were commissioned by the Rockefellers  as memorials to family members. The Christmas Eve services are a way for families to come together and get away from the Christmas materialism.  Its a wonderful time to reflect about what Christmas really is all about.  Something that quite honestly seems to get lost in the...

Sometimes its just nice to pause and enjoy the season.  I was busy today – running around like crazy.   But at dusk I saw a display that I really loved.  This isn’t one of those over-the top displays.  It has charm and grace.  Not too much, not too little.  Its interesting because this particular display is at the steps of a church.  Nevertheless, it has more of a holiday feel, and at least to my mind, the religious overtones are missing.  Still it captures the spirit of giving and conveys a feeling of warmth and the spirit of giving.  Something sorely needed in these times where the “I’ve got mine” attitude seems to prevail in our day-to-day lives.   Anyway, here is the photo:   ©2011 – Ruthmarie G.

The Village of Tarrytown is urging the State of New York to consider rehabbing the Tappan Zee Bridge instead of replacing it... especially since the planned new 5.2 billion replacement would not even offer Bus or Rail Transit services. Spending that amount of money on a new bridge concept that does not incorporate a meaningful mass transit component makes no sense whatsoever... by the time this new bridge would be completed it be completely outdated. On the other hand, it would be way faster aand cost way less to reconfigure, rehab and update the aging span and it would also have much less of an environmental impact on the area. In addition, you could very easily spend some of the cost savings on a rapid bus transit component that could tie in with the Metro North Station in Tarrytown. ...

This is my second installment on Small Business Saturday.  Small businesses are the bedrock of our community and I’m thrilled to see that the small brick and mortars are getting some attention because Black Friday has largely become a big-box affair.   To see my first entry on small businesses  in White Plains  NY click here. You will also find more information about why small business is so important to a community.   Marie Graham also wrote a very eloquent post about the value of small business and why we should skip Black Friday and make Small Business Saturday rock.   Here are a few picks for the village of Tarrytown.   in general  Tarrytown NY has done a good job of keeping their small brick and mortars  as a dominant feature.  As a result it is a very unique village with a great d...

    Hudson  Harbor – Tarrytown NY The last time I updated my blog on Hudson Harbor of Tarrytown NY,  Phase I townhouse sales were in full swing and the Phase II condominiums were just starting to get underway.  With Phase II now in full swing,   it is high time I updated the information on this amazing development. Hudson Harbor  is located right on the Hudson River against a major portion of the Westchester’s Hudson River Walk -A trail  which will ultimately  extend the length of the county along the Hudson River when completed.  This development is a combination of luxury townhomes as well as condominium flats. Interspersed between the town homes will sit a complete community including shops and dining – creating  complete mini-community on the Hudson River.  Included in this package ...

Every once in a while I get an opportunity.  I was supposed to be working into the evening on Saturday, but a last minute cancellation freed me up unexpectedly.  So I decided to enjoy the last afternoon of daylight savings at the Rockefeller Preserve with Jade & Tundra in tow.  We had a nice walk around Swan Lake.  I was trying to take photos with two dogs on leashes….to say this looked clumsy was an understatement.  But I did get a couple of nice pictures that I decided to post right here.  I loved the way the fall colors reflected off of the water as the ducks went about their business.  They are obviously busily preparing themselves for the winter season ahead.   The duck population was hard at work preparing for the cold months ahead.   This Mallard was “making tracks” or “waves” in...

"Tarrytown's River Walk Park" has been completed and was officially dedicated recently. The park is an important segment of Westchester County's 51.5 mile long "Westchester County River Walk" which starts in Yonkers and ends in Peekskill.  Almost 33 miles of the scenic walk and bike way along the Hudson River shores are now completed. Tarrytown's River Walk Park will be another exciting destination for people seeking recreation and relaxation. Pedestrians and cyclists will have chances for social activities, including taking advantage of a number of outdoor "garden rooms" along the esplanade. Grass terraces and lawns in the park's center allow for sitting, lounging, picnicking, informal games, and viewing the majestic Hudson River and it's banks as well as the Tappan Zee bridge and the ...
