Single mother, Doris Walker, doesn't want her six-year old daughter Susan's head filled with romantic notions. Their neighbor Fred Gailey tries to woo Doris by charming Susan and taking her to see Santa Claus at Macy's, where Doris works. Doris is not impressed -but when it turns out Macy's Santa may in fact be the real Kris Kringle, a wave of love spreads across New York City that melts even the most cynical hearts.

Volunteer Ambulance Corps Needs Your Support

raizenDavid Raizen, President of the Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps sent the following letter to

Dear Neighbor, Many Scarsdale residents do not submit donations of support because they mistakenly believe that Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps is funded by direct tax dollars. With no direct taxpayer support and an annual budget of $600,000, we are running in the red.

This year our annual fund drive has received an extremely poor response. We have received only 467 donations from the 5,356 households in our community.

Please make a tax-deductible donation to support your Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps by going to our website: and click donate, or send a check to PO Box 92, Scarsdale, NY 10583.

Freightway Steering Committee to Convene Third Public Workshop on Monday, November 13, 2017

The Village of Scarsdale is conducting a visioning study to guide potential redevelopment of the Freightway Site, an underutilized area adjacent to the Scarsdale Metro North Railroad Station. The third public workshop will be held on Monday, November 13th from 7 PM to 9 PM at the Scarsdale Teen Center located at 862 Scarsdale Ave, Scarsdale, NY.

The site is a 2.38 acre Village owned property currently used for commuter and merchant parking with approximately 700 spaces in an aging five-story parking garage and two surface parking lots. For the past 30 years, numerous studies have focused on the site, due to its key location in the Village Center. The Village is renewing its planning efforts, given the current condition of the Freightway Garage and the anticipated need for repairs and improvements. Toward that end, the Village Board has appointed the Freightway Steering Committee to create goals and objectives for the future development of an attractive, economically viable project on the site.

The workshop will include a presentation of preliminary redevelopment concepts followed by an open house session for participants to comment on the concepts. This is a critical time in the process where the public is encouraged to share their thoughts on the vision, goals and objectives for the site. The Committee has held two public workshops, conducted an online survey and held a number of focus groups to assist with garnering information from key stakeholders. The Freightway Steering Committee welcomes all interested residents, property owners, merchants and other stakeholders to attend this workshop.

The purpose of the study is to provide a community-based vision for the Freightway Site to ensure future redevelopment enhances the Village Center while meeting local needs. As such, the study will incorporate a broad and meaningful public engagement process. The process is guided by the Freightway Steering Committee, supported by technical planning and market professionals. This structure will help to advance development alternatives that adequately consider potential impacts and/or constraints, such as revenue generation, parking, traffic, infrastructure, school enrollment, community facilities and services and potential demographic changes.
