MusicFestivalThe Scarsdale Music Festival is THIS Saturday, September 14, from 12 - 6 pm in Scarsdale Village. Here's a letter from the Scarsdale Business Alliance inviting you to attend:

Dear Scarsdale: This Saturday, September 14th from 12pm-6pm, the Scarsdale Business Alliance (SBA) invites the entire Scarsdale community to attend Scarsdale's first all day music festival. The event is free with a suggested donation of $5 (to support our local charity partners) with access to all day music, food, and family fun.

The live stage will feature a lineup of local Scarsdale bands: Someday Radio, Louise In Trouble, The Del Bocas, Where Is Phi, The Modtones, The Big Red Words, and SHS student band Anytime.

Zachys will host a Grand Tasting Tent where a big selection of wines and beers can be sampled for $25 for those 21 and over with ID. Tickets and more information is available at www.scarsdalemusicfestival.com.

There will be activities for children at the Family Fun Zone and food from Leila’s Crepe Station, Sapori and a barbeque hosted by the PBA.

The event is hosted by the Scarsdale Business Alliance which began only a year and a half ago. The purpose of the SBA is to foster the shared success of a flourishing Village Center and local merchants. We believe that the music festival on Saturday is the perfect way to celebrate our shared vision for the enduring success of our community.

Thanks to participating sponsors: Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, Zachys, Pepe Infiniti, and Houlihan Lawrence.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

sidewalkPetticoatScarsdale shoppers met with news of two more big losses this week.

LF Stores, whose large and popular store has graced Boniface Circle for years, announced that they are closing all 24 of their brick and mortar locations.

The store, always chock a block with merchandise, was a favorite for teens who went for their torn jeans, off the shoulder tops, chunky knit sweaters and accessories. Especially popular were their annual sales where enthusiastic shoppers would dig through mountains of clothing in search of a find.

The press release says, “LF is closing its brick-and-mortar stores and offering at least 80% off LFStoreLF has already closed in Scarsdale.storewide starting now. All store inventories will be sold at greatly reduced prices. These huge discounts are for a limited time and in-stores only.”

According to the press release, “The brand will continue to sell their merchandise online even after the stores close, the LF website will continue offering customers the most unique and exciting fashion in the market – all at www.lfstores.com.”

The store’s exit leaves another large retail space unoccupied in Scarsdale -- and a wide swath of Boniface Circle empty.

Department Store Demise

After Lord and Taylor closed their flagship store in Manhattan in January, many wondered if the Scarsdale store would be far behind. Despite assurances that the popular department store was here to stay, this week we learned that Hudson Bay Corporation had sold the entire Lord and Taylor brand to Le Tote. What’s Le Tote? Apparently it’s a subscription based clothing rental business who plans to convert Lord and Taylor shoppers to subscription clothing buyers. Really? Will I soon be driving down the Post Road to renew my favorite sweater or pay late fees because I failed to return my shoes before their due date? We shall see!

In the interim, even those of us who are accustomed to shopping the stores, will be forced to shop online – as there will be few places that stock sufficient inventory.

cautiontape 10 0 2Severe storms late Monday afternoon August 19 knocked out power to almost one fifth of Scarsdale homes. Deputy Village Manager Robert Cole said that strong winds downed power lines and trees and left 1,200 households without power.

Here is his report:

"At the peak of yesterday's storm event, an estimated 1,200 Scarsdale homes were without power. The outages were in connection with downed trees and wires caused by wind. The Department of Public Works responded to a variety of issues up until about 9:00 pm last night, at which a majority of homes had power restored, with the balance restored during the overnight hours.

For a period of time last night, Post Road was closed near Wayside Lane, and there were other lesser street closures, as well. Finally, staff are aware of one private tree that damaged a neighboring home."

If you have photos of storm damage, please email them to scarsdalecomments@gmail.com to share them with our readers.
