New Ro in National Ad

I’m not usually in the habit of re-posting beer commercials, but New Rochelleans have special reason to look closely at this new ad from Budweiser honoring health care and emergency service workers.  That’s our own Lincoln Avenue at 0:27.



Public Health Update for April 7th

Here is the latest official public health update from New Rochelle, just sent citywide via robo-call:

This is Mayor Noam Bramson, with an update for April 7.

As we approach Passover and Easter, our thoughts naturally turn to spending time with family and friends, but please remember that New York State has prohibited all non-essential gatherings of any size, including social and holiday gatherings at home. It’s hard, because we all want to be together with our loved ones, but these restrictions are essential to beating the virus, so let’s all do our part to overcome this challenge, stay in touch from afar, and save lives.

To report a violation of distancing requirements, please call the State’s Task Force at 1-833-789-0470. Restrictions will be enforced.

Last Friday evening, thousands of New Rochelleans took a minute to “Clap Because We Care,” in support of our health care and emergency service providers. Let’s keep doing this every single Friday at 7:00pm, until the crisis is over, showing that New Rochelle is strong, resilient, and united.

Thank you for listening. There’s always more information at

New Rochelle’s Jacob Goodman

Check out this article about New Rochelle’s own Jacob Goodman, a junior at Binghamton, who invented a ventilator prototype, using items obtained at a Walmart.  Proud that our community can produce such an impressive innovator.  #NewRoStrong


Heroes Supporting Heroes

Watch this heartwarming video of New Rochelle’s First Responders supporting health care workers at Montefiore last Friday night.  We’re planning to make “Clap Because You Care” a weekly event through this crisis.  #NewRoStrong

HEROES SUPPORTING HEROES Members of the New Rochelle Police and Fire Department took part in #clapbecausewecare to express our support and gratitude to all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly to fight this pandemic at Montefiore New Rochelle. @newrochellefirefighters came through with some freshly baked cupcakes and we were happy to provide the donuts!

Clap Because We Care — 7:00pm Tonight

Health care providers have been on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19, demonstrating extraordinary dedication, stamina, and bravery.  Let’s all show our appreciation this evening at 7:00pm by standing outside our homes — or opening our windows — and clapping loudly for our health care heroes.  You can also use a whistle, blow a horn, bang a pan, or whatever works for you.  Let’s make some noise!  #NewRoStrong
