Air Quality Alert

I just sent the following city-wide message.  Please remain inside, if possible, especially if you have a respiratory condition.

This is the City of New Rochelle with important public health information.

Para espanol, oprima numero uno.

As you have probably noticed, air quality here in New Rochelle and throughout the entire northeast has been severely impacted by wildfires in Canada. Conditions may remain poor for several days.

We urge residents to remain indoors with windows closed to the degree possible. Anyone with a respiratory condition should be especially cautious about exposure. If you do need to go outside, experts advise wearing a tight-fitting mask and changing your clothes when returning home. Please also be sure to monitor the health of loved ones who may be vulnerable, including children, the elderly, or anyone who is medically-fragile.

All of the City’s active recreational facilities are closed until conditions improve. And while passive parks are open, we recommend avoiding outdoor recreation of any kind.

Additional bulletins will follow, if warranted.

This has been Mayor Noam Bramson. Thank you for listening.

Lawn Signs for Yadira

If you don’t already have one, please consider displaying a lawn sign for Yadira Ramos-Herbert.  You can request a sign here.

Displaying a lawn sign is literally the easiest way to support a great candidate.  Once you sign-up, your job is done — a campaign volunteer will deliver and place the sign.

Yadira will be a wonderful, history-making Mayor for all of New Rochelle, and I could not be more proud to support her.

New Ro Celebrates Pride Month

I am grateful to live in a community that encourages all people to be their authentic selves, celebrates love, and welcomes every neighbor of good will.  In this spirit, we raised the Pride Flag at City Hall this morning and will also celebrate our first-ever Pride Festival at Library Green on June 10 at 2:00pm.  Love is love.
