    After eight years as mayor of the Village of Port Chester, Dennis Pilla has made the decision within the past week not to seek another term. His current two-year term expires at the end of March.

    “It’s such a great privilege and honor to serve as mayor..."
  • Beautifying Crawford Park

  • Can an $80 million school bond pass?
    It’s been two months since the Port Chester Board of Education voted to accept the Bond Advisory Committee’s $78.66 million bond recommendation, and the only thing that has changed about the proposed plan is its price tag.

  • B.B. girls’ basketball team suffers seventh straight loss

    With a week-long break since the Blind Brook girls’ varsity basketball team’s last defeat, the Trojans had their heads up and hoped to pull out a big victory for their homecoming crowd when they faced off against Class AA John Jay High School on Friday, Jan. 6. 

  • Ivan Garcia wins a Shoreline title, wrestling Rams split 2 dual meets

    Seeing is believing. Even if they can't quite believe what they are seeing. If Westchester wrestling aficionados didn't know who Port Chester freshman phenom Ivan Garcia was before the season started, they sure do know now.

  • B.B. boys’ hoops gets back on track with two-game winning streak

    The Blind Brook boys’ varsity basketball team is currently sitting at 4-6. They are energized and refreshed, claiming a two-game winning streak since coming back from the break. The squad is playing arguably its best basketball of the season and will look to keep its momentum going as the season progresses.

  • Freshman softball hot shot BK Ostrowski commits to Fordham U

    It don't mean a thing if you ain't got the swing.

    That's the way musical legend Duke Ellington described the difference between a good musician, a very good one and an all-time great.

  • Hoop Lady Rams up to 2 wins

    The Port Chester Lady Rams doubled their number of wins over last year just after the winter holiday break. And even though they brought their win total up to just two when they beat Yonkers Montessori in the Saunders Tournament on Jan. 5 and 6, they came close to winning a third game in that tourney before losing close to Sleepy Hollow in the last few minutes.

  • The year that was in P.C. scholastic sports: 2016 bullish year for Rams, Lady Rams
    This is the year that was in Port Chester High School sports with 2016 a year where the Rams and Lady Rams curiously resembled the Bulls and Bears of Wall Street. Taking stock of the stock market showed it was hard keeping up with the Dow Jones Industrial Average. 
  • 'Ugh' turnout leads to a P.C. loss instead of first swim team win

    They embrace the cold, they swim during frigid winter weather with what seems like ice water in their veins, they show up for daily weekday swim practice by what seems like dawn's early light, they inhale the chlorine that turns their home Carver Center pool into their personal ocean, they feel their limbs and muscles growing stronger as they stretch out for all they are worth churning up that aquatic playing field. Yet they are still looking for their first win against more established programs as the newbie Rams swimmers go into their third season.

  • Hoop Rams upset John Jay 61-58 with Harbine having a career game

    They tell a story about the power of faith involving a tribe living though a seemingly never-ending drought in their thirst-parched land, that drought calling for desperate measures that led up to a prayer session requesting rain—but only one of their true believers thought to bring along an umbrella.

  • Quakers beat wrestling Rams 57-19, but Ivan Garcia remains undefeated

    They were the league champions last year, the first league title for Port Chester High School's wrestling Rams in nine years. It was a smashing debut year for Tom Josephson as the new P.C. varsity wrestling coach with his son, Declan, the last Rams All-American heavyweight wrestler, as his assistant. But this year is different.

  • Hoop Lady Rams’ coach's birthday wish: Enough wins to make it into the playoffs

    Vive la difference, as the French say in celebrating the differences between males and females that help make the world go round. And that difference was very much on the mind of dedicated second year Lady Rams’ basketball coach London Reyes as he celebrated his 50th birthday Monday during a holiday break practice at Port Chester High School with a birthday wish he hopes his team can make come true.

  • Five eateries coming, two have gone

    Since I last did an update on the ever-changing dining scene in Port Chester and Rye Brook two months ago, one restaurant is just opening, others are coming along, another I only recently discovered had been in the works may be opening soon and two have closed, both unexpectedly.

  • Quarter century-old Italian staple moves to bright new quarters
    T&J, what can I say? After 26 years, it’s a staple in the Port Chester/Rye Brook community. And now that the Italian restaurant known for its delicious Neapolitan family recipes, traditional and gourmet pizza, homemade pasta and warm hospitality has moved a block away to spanking new quarters in a newly constructed building with twice the space.
  • New batch of eateries opening

    Another batch of restaurants that has been in the works for some time is finally coming to fruition while the conversion of a closed restaurant into a new one has just surfaced. 

  • Updated: Port Chester resident recognized as Mount Rushmore’s chief carver

    The only classically trained stone carver in the tradition of Michelangelo who worked on Mount Rushmore wasn’t officially named the South Dakota monument’s chief carver until almost 50 years after his death.

    Luigi Del Bianco was a mystery to his grandson Lou, who only knew his grandfather for five or six years before he died. 
  • Salvation Army rings in the holiday season

    Port Chester resident Dakota Davis stands on the sidewalk on Westchester Avenue near its intersection with North Main Street and rings a bell to collect donations for the Salvation Army. Many of these bell ringers can be seen on sidewalks and in front of businesses during the holidays.

  • Bottling the spirit of New York

    Two local brewery owners prefer to fly under the radar, which is why their Port Chester base doesn’t even have a sign above the door.

    Noah Braunstein, 32, and Yoni Rabino, 31, of Neversink Spirits at 33 New Broad St. grew up with fond childhood memories of apple picking in nearby orchards. Add in the love for traditional European fruit brandy and eau de vie (clear, colorless fruit brandy translated to “water of life”) combined with two backgrounds in science from McGill and Wesleyan universities, and Neversink Spirits was born.
