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.

Nyack, August 6 — If you are going into the city today, Rockland County has 16 ways to make your commute a little bit easier.
For the first time in the 28 year history of the Rockland County Department of Transportation, Sunday service is now available on the Tappan Zee Express (TZx) bus, connecting west of the Hudson residents to the Metro North stations in Tarrytown and White Plains as well as other stops in Westchester. It’s also good news for car-less city folk who want to spend the day in Nyack and Rockland and previously didn’t have Sunday cross-river bus service.
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.
This Week in The Villages: It’s the halfway mark of a four day weekend. There are July 4th fireworks in Nyack on Tuesday. And there were fireworks in Albany last week when the new Tappan Zee Bridge got a new name.
