This Week In The Villages: It’s your last day to wear white. And more importantly, it’s your only day to attend the Labor Day one-day-only pop-up park on the Hudson River in South Nyack. And Thursday there will be a Primary Candidates Forum in advance of the September 12 primary election. There are also a few do-good opportunities: You can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey or count bikes for the Town of Orangetown.
This Week In The Villages: This past weekend, it was lights, camera, action for the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. This week, it’s lights camera, action for an actual movie. HBO comes to town Monday. And Orange & Rockland Utilities begins working on gas main replacement and the Midland Avenue Project resumes. The projects are unrelated, but will leave Nyack safe, glamorous — and a little bit challenging to drive through this week. And it’s not to early to make Labor Day plans, including a visit to a one day only pop up park on the Hudson River in South Nyack.
This Week In The Villages: It’s been a long time rumblin’. And now it is finally here for the driving. It, of course, is the new Tappan Zee Bridge–er, New NY Bridge–er, Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. Call it what you will, but this week (Friday night) the bridge connecting Rockland and Tarrytown will open to westbound traffic. And that’s not all transpiring on the roads this week. The next phase of the Midland Avenue Road Project begins.
This Week In The Villages: Affordable housing in the Village of Nyack — what’s that all about? Don Hammond explains and corrects some misconceptions.

This Week In The Villages: The children’s playground at Nyack’s Memorial Park will be getting new sprinklers next spring. Nyack Hospital has a new Director for Emergency Medicine.

This Week in The Villages: What do Dec 15, 1955 and August 25, 2017 have in common? History will remember both dates as the day the Tappan Zee Bridge officially opened. On August 25, the first span of the replacement Tappan Zee Bridge is set to open to four lanes of westbound traffic.
On Tuesday listen for music in Memorial Park and watch for a movie shoot on Main Street. Nyack’s downtown will used in an episode of the Amazon original Sneaky Pete. Looking ahead…you still have a chance to have a say about the future of Nyack’s Waterfront.
This Week in The Villages: Outdoor summertime tunes continue to ring this week when a veritable rock ‘n roll juke box, George Romano takes the stage in South Nyack. Bridge work will take place this week near the Rockland landing. And closer to home, there will be sewer scuttling–and not just by rats.
This Week in The Villages: By now it has the ring of a lyric you can’t get out of your head: “The TZ Vista project is again on the agenda at a special Planning Board meeting.” (Okay, it ain’t Dylan or Mann or RZA. But yes, more TZ Vista planning this week.) And more music for your ears: Clarkstown gets a historic property, Nita Lowey fights for Meals on Wheels, and the New NY bridge westbound span is all aglow. There’s also Tuesday night music in Memorial Park, a free outdoor movie on Wed and NO PARKING on Main Street for Thursday’s Classic Car Night.
This Week in The Villages: will offer a bit of everyone’s favorite extracurriculars: music, sports and TZ Vista. The Music on the Hudson Series continues this week. There will be a pickleball primer (no pickles involved). And the TZ Vista project is on the agenda at the Planning Board meeting; the project is in the final stages of environmental review.
