What are these animals to do? We have taken away much of the open areas so that's what happens. Interesting, is how many saw the recent Jurassic World and probably think bringing back dinosaurs might be thrilling. But in who's back yard? Remember the goat from Jurassic Park? Remember that humans, not Coyotes are the most dangerous animals in the world. View Comment
There are thousands of county workers so 70 is not much cutting. I also notice that many of the vans outside of County Building on Martine have out of county and or state plates. Can't the County hire businesses from within its own? How long is the repairs to Michaelain Building going to take? The scaffolding came down but now it is back up. View Comment
And, Unions were blamed for the economic crisis in NY. Look what Cuomo and the others have done to damage public education. NYers pay much in taxes and yet little goes into the things we need. Have you seen a pothole lately? When was the last time our streets were repaved? This is why not working pays in the Welfare State of NY.
White Plains seems to want more people with multiple plans to build luxury apartments that are over 6 stories high. And, the new buildings already constructed in the last decade or so have not been able to attract enough tenants to be at full capacity. But, at the same time retail stores are closing and the roads and streets are a mess.
Appeals is what makes the death penalty process very expensive. I am against the death penalty because it takes years before it takes place. Death Penalty does not deter crime and we need to do more on prevention. View Comment
Title of article should say Westchester, not White Plains as most of article is about places outside of White Plains. Roads need to be repaved. Most fillers are a temporary fix and extreme weather erases all the patches and the roads remain a mess. Sidewalks are also horrible. Rt 22 has been a mess for years. View Comment
Filling potholes is a temporary fix. Roads need to be repaved. Roads in White Plains that were repaved last year did better. Sidewalks are also in bad shape and filling in the holes just come out during the winter. Roads and bridges do not last forever but this problem is worldwide. Drive slower when you can. View Comment
Like Hillary but all the negativity that has already gone on will just get worse. With Republicans in majority what have they got done so far? If all eligible people voted the government might be totally different. View Comment
Why don't they remodel The Galleria? I think The Westchester is still the nicest mall in city but bathrooms could use work. Developers are planning more retail stores across st on Westchester Ave and the Pavilion so too many stores have ended up with lots of empty stores all over city. They should have shoveled outside Nordstrom better this winter. It was hard to cross by Paulding entrance. Sidewalks and roads to stores are in terrible condition. Too many stores and restaurants are putting everyone out of business and now that Apple has another store in Yonkers, people are going elsewhere to shop. View Comment
One does not have to be stupid to get scammed. I got calls from people claiming they are from Microsoft and I have a virus. I asked for their names and a call back number and they hung up. Was I supposed to call police?
Sisters established college in 1923 (Good Council College) and it was College of White Plains in 1972. College taken over by Pace but they discontinued undergrad program and there was a law suit. Mercy had a program but in building at corner of S Broadway & Martine (UFC gym). View Comment
Where do you get 125yrs? The Sisters of Divine Compassion brought the property in 1890 but the Academy dates from 1922. Good Council Training School dates from 1901 and in 1918 a high school level was added. It is sad that the school is closing but I hope the buyer of the property preserves the older structures or at least some of them that are on the property. View Comment
Many state routes are without sidewalks and areas to cross. It is very dangerous and when people do not have cars it is very risky. I live in an area with sidewalks and crossing areas and vehicles still disobey the law by not yielding to pedestrians. It is unfortunate for people to die getting to and from work. Pedestrians need to be aware that dark clothing makes them invisible to drivers. Employers with housekeepers might consider driving them to the bus stop. Many bus stops are isolated spots along roads without sidewalks. View Comment
