There are lots of fun ways to celebrate the season in New Rochelle.
Tomorrow, December 2, the Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual interfaith Holiday Lighting at 5:30pm on Memorial Plaza.
The next day — December 3 — we launch a new tradition with the opening of the Holiday Market at the New Rochelle Transit Center. Visit www.NewRochelleDRi.com/HolidayMarket for a full list of vendors and scheduled entertainment. The market will run through December 12.
In addition, youngsters can visit with Santa throughout the month — in front of City Hall on December 8, at Lincoln Park on December 9, and at various parks on December 18. For more information visit www.NewRochelleNY.com/Events.
And if you’re looking for opportunities to give back or would like to be added to our donation and drive page, visit www.NewRochelleNY.com/Give.
Finally, the City is offering two hours of free holiday parking in certain municipal lots throughout December, as well as two hours of free parking on the rooftop deck of the New Rochelle Transit Center garage for shoppers at the Holiday Market, effective during market hours only.
Have a great December!

Beechmont Lake this morning. Beautiful!

The City remains primarily focused on storm recovery today, but we still want to remind residents that our annual fireworks display, postponed from July 4th, will take place tonight at the waterfront. Fireworks by Grucci begin at 9:30pm, with good viewing from Hudson and Five Islands Parks. Just before and after the fireworks, nearby streets will be closed to cars so that pedestrians can walk safely, and parking in the immediate area will be limited, so plan ahead.
If you haven’t already completed the Phase I Survey for the LINC, please take a couple of minutes to offer your input about the design of New Rochelle’s newest park. Through this exciting initiative, Memorial Highway will become 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. Community input is essential to turning this concept into reality, so please give us your feedback.
