Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino today announced that the county’s “Celebrate Aging Village Fair” is set for Wednesday, September 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Community Center, 125 Lozza Drive, Valhalla. This free, intergenerational event will feature everything from clay art and ancient Chinese healing exercises to health monitoring and elder law consultations.
The sight of backhoes beginning slab demolition and equipment loading at Edge-On-Hudson was a welcome milestone in mid-July for local residents eager to see construction begin in earnest on the former General Motors property. The development team completed construction of the temporary bridge on Beekman Avenue between Hudson and Clinton Streets earlier in the month, and moved immediately to the first construction work on-site, including pile testing and slab demolition.
In recent months, a number of urgent care centers have begun cropping up throughout Westchester. These facilities, such as the new Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care center in Tarrytown, are meant to provide easy access to medical services for patients who do not require the type of emergency care that is available in a hospital emergency department.
I devote a lot of time to volunteering in the Tarrytown Ambulance Corps. Like many of my colleagues, waking up at 4 in the morning to answer a call is not unusual. Sometimes it’s just to reassure someone with a minor malady that they don’t really need to go to a hospital. Sometimes it’s to respond to the Tappan Zee Bridge for a crane that collapsed. We have pagers that wake us up with a long, screeching tone. The tone lasts for about 10 seconds prior to getting dispatch information. Those 10 seconds are like getting a shot of adrenaline. Every time, you brace yourself for an unknown. Anything from having to deliver a baby to watching someone breathe their last breath.
