With most of the summer going by without the grass even being cut
around a large portion of the Port Chester Metro-North station, contractors
have sprung into action on various projects.
A group of residents under the age of 19 were sick of hearing the
negativity about their hometown and decided to show outsiders what Port Chester
is really all about in a music video. The video is titled “Diverse City” and is
available on YouTube. It currently has over 900 views.
He didn’t want a party because he prefers to fly under the radar,
but when the surprise came, the Port Chester-Rye-Rye Brook EMS administrator
took it with grace, a touch of shock, and a lot of joking. Scott Moore has served the Port Chester-Rye-Rye
Brook community for 20 years in the EMS, 16 as its administrator.
Rye Brook’s 2016-17 paving contract has been let and milling

Blind Brook Middle School has a new person in the main office, an
assistant principal who won’t be switching between two schools like the person
who preceded her but who will remain focused on helping the middle school

It's about time for Port Chester to win a long overdue football
league championship. And that time is now.
That's the unofficial slogan of this year's Port Chester football
New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman was talking about
recent changes in the Bronx Bombers’ lineup, Beltran, Chapman, Miller and Nova
among those traded, A-Rod retiring, and newcomers to pinstripes like the rookie
call-ups Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin making Major League history by belting
home runs as Baby Bombers in their first at bats.
It was déja vu all over again--almost.
Except it just wasn't meant to be.
When it comes to baseball comebacks, nobody does it better than
the 11-U Port Chester Youth Baseball League (PCYBL) Pirates, as good a group of
comeback kids as Lyon Park has ever seen, including an epic come-from-behind
win that ranks right up there with the best ever.
When it comes to pennant races, the Port Chester Youth Baseball
League 12-U and 8-U Pirates were in a class by themselves—both finished in
first place during the just concluded Westchester Baseball Association (WBA)
regular season with impressive late season runs that had them on a roll going
into the playoffs after press time later this week.

Of the 123 restaurants currently open in Port Chester and Rye
Brook, 21 serve pizza. That’s 17 percent of all the eateries in the two
villages, that total number in fact having fallen by eight since this time last
year. Besides the pizzerias and Italian restaurants that also make pizza, the
two Irish/American pub/restaurants—Davy Byrnes and McShane’s—are on that list
as is The Clydesdale Pub & Grill—dubbed “an American bar & grill with
an English twist”—and Härth in the Hilton Westchester. The latter two both have
