Great Deals at Local Businesses

Although New Rochelle has made enormous progress since the spring, when our community was a COVID hotspot, businesses here and throughout the region continue to face enormous challenges.  That’s why efforts like New Rochelle United are so valuable.  This private initiative highlights deals and discounts here in our city, giving consumers valuable information about how to save money while shopping local.  Take a look.

Hometown Heroes

This morning, I was proud to join local veteran leaders to celebrate the installation of 27 “Hometown Heroes” banners, placed on Huguenot and Main Streets around Faneuil Park in the city’s East End. The banners help remind all of us of the profound impact veterans have had on our community and of our lasting debt to those who have served.  I am especially grateful to Lupita Mendoza of the Veterans Advisory Committee and to American Legion Post 8 for spearheading this moving tribute.

With our region now well into the re-opening process, the City’s communications team put together this video looking back on New Rochelle’s experience with COVID-19.  The crisis is far from over, but it’s encouraging to reflect on how far we have come and to express our gratitude to all the essential workers who made our community’s progress possible.

Phase III Re-Opening Begins Today

Our region’s recovery from COVID continues, as New Rochelle enters Phase III of the re-opening process today.  Restaurants are now allowed to offer indoor dining (at 50% capacity), and personal care businesses are also permitted to open.  More detail at forward.ny.gov.

While our progress is encouraging, responsible behavior remains a must: please continue to wear a mask in public, practice physical distancing, and wash hands frequently.  Having come so far, let’s not slide back.
