Shattenkirk and the Stanley Cup

Members of the New Rochelle Lightning welcome Kevin Shattenkirk and the Stanley Cup to City Hall

Very proud to honor hockey great and New Rochelle native Kevin Shattenkirk at City Hall this morning.  Shattenkirk was a key part of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 2020 championship team, and we’re thrilled that he brought the Stanley Cup back to New Ro.  Welcome home, Kevin!

Youth Voices Can Help Shape the LINC

As New Rochelle plans the Linc — a new linear park that would transform much of the Memorial Highway corridor — we are eager for robust public input to ensure that the park’s elements reflect the goals of the surrounding neighborhood and city.  Given the importance of vibrant parks to young people and families, youth voices are an especially important part of this discussion.  In this spirit, New Rochelleans ages 11 to 19 are invited to a LINC Youth Open House on July 23rd from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

Participants can register to join at this link.  And here’s a flyer in Spanish.

Valet Parking Now Available in Library South Lot

New Rochelle has launched a valet parking system at the Library South Lot, from Thursday through Sunday, noon to midnight.  The service is easy to use: just pull up to to the valet podium off Memorial Highway and then the valet will provide a virtual ticket, secure your keys, and safely park your vehicle. To retrieve your car, simply send a text with your arrival time or return to the valet podium. There is no additional charge beyond the standard parking rates.  New Rochelle will continue exploring creative strategies to right-size our supply of parking and to improve the experience of visiting and patronizing our downtown.

Take the LINC Survey

What if you had the opportunity to reimagine Memorial Highway as a safe, community-friendly greenway connecting the Lincoln Avenue neighborhood with New Rochelle’s downtown, making it a place where all of us can walk, bike, and play?  That’s the idea behind “The LINC,” and we need your input to make it happen. Through the City’s virtual reality initiative (NRVR), your feedback will help shape, inform, and guide the development of The LINC. Please take a quick moment to participate in the Phase 1 Survey to provide meaningful feedback to the City and project design consultants as they prepare conceptual drawings for the next phase of the project.
