As we approach the one-year anniversary of New Rochelle’s first exposure to COVID, the City invites residents and organizations to submit images that capture our experience of loss, strength, resilience, and hope, or that simply record the new normal of life in the pandemic.  There’s more information in this press release, and images can be uploaded at  The submission deadline is Monday, February 22.

Selected pieces will be compiled into a retrospective that will be posted online by Wednesday, March 3, exactly one year after our first case.

Please consider joining this community-wide effort by submitting a photograph that is meaningful to you.  I hope and believe that the combined images will be a powerful record of New Rochelle’s character and determination during a year of unprecedented challenge.
