The summer sounds concert and performance series returns to Hudson Park this year, with live performances beginning on Sunday, July 25 and continuing on Wednesdays through August. Thank you to the New Rochelle Council on the Arts for organizing these great events.
A wonderful short video describing the community garden at Lincoln Park and its connection to the past, present, and future of the Lincoln Avenue neighborhood. Linda Tarrant-Reid, the garden’s founder, is a dynamo, filled with positive energy, and an amazing asset for New Rochelle.
New Rochelle’s Sister City Committee is sponsoring a Pre-Bastille Day Jazz Concert overlooking Long Island Sound on July 11th. Tickets are just $15, and all proceeds benefit musicians, many of whom have been out of work through the pandemic. A great opportunity to enjoy a night of music in a beautiful setting and to celebrate our connection to La Rochelle, France. More information and tickets at this link.
Love this article in the New York Times about the induction of Mariano Rivera and Fritz Pollard into the New Rochelle Walk of Fame. The first is an international superstar, the second deserves to be better known, with achievements that appear even more meaningful and heroic in retrospect.
This Friday, New Rochelle will induct two additions to our Walk of Fame: baseball great Mariano Rivera, who lived in New Rochelle for nine years and maintains a close connection to our community, and Fritz Pollard, the NFL’s first African-American head coach, who lived in New Rochelle from 1961 to 1983.
The Walk of Fame, located in Ruby Dee Park at Library Green, recognizes nationally-notable figures with special ties to New Rochelle. If you haven’t already seen the installations, please visit to learn about our city’s remarkable contributions to the arts, business, politics, education, science, the media, entertainment, and sports.
