Nyack Mayor Jen White hosts her monthly “downtown” meeting for Nyack businesses on Mon Dec 3 at 9a on the 2nd floor of Nyack’s Village Hall. This informal meeting on issues important to residents and businesses is open to the public.
Nyack, Nov 3 — It took 14 years and ratification by 43 states to end prohibition in the United States. In Nyack it took only two days — and turning the lights back on Main Street. “This is the news you have all been waiting for,” said Nyack Mayor Jen White. “So you can all now go get your drinks,” she joked.

Over the vocal opposition of several owners of local bars and restaurants Orangetown Police Chief Kevin Nulty and the Village Board announced a modified temporary ban on serving alcohol in Nyack at the Friday’s public meeting on the steps of Village Hall. The original ban was implemented on Halloween.
Nyack Nov 1 — On Wed night a 6p-5a curfew was instituted to discourage Trick Or Treating as most Nyack streets were dark and without power after the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. And because of limited police resources, Nyack will be “dry” until further notice. The Village Board banned the sale of alcoholic beverages in Nyack, saying they needed officers to patrol the village instead of policing late night activity at bars and restaurants until all power was restored.
