Well Designed Houses Make Good Neighbors

A Traditional Front Porch By Soorikian-Architecture


From Houzz.comA house that is a good neighbor engages the world around it — even when it’s different. So what does that mean? How does a house engage the world, and why is it important that it do so? To engage the world, a home should have an in-between space that beckons to the passersby while providing shelter and a perch from which to watch the street. This is a space, such as a porch, from which you can see the street, and the street can see you. Creating such a space is more than good manners and neighborliness — it also helps keep a neighborhood safe, as crime typically takes place in the shadows. The in-between space is best when it’s large enough to be a room of its own. A place for comfortable chairs, a table or two, maybe even a hammock. Remember that it is a room that’s part of the home, so treat it with the same attention to detail as the other rooms. In fact, since this is the room that presents your face to the world, maybe treating it a little better than the other rooms is in order […..].

Outdoor Dining on the Hudson in the Rivertowns

It seems an apropos time to repost something I wrote last year, about summer dining opportunities on the Hudson River waterfront in the Rivertowns. It is a testament to the strong experience of dining on the water and the quality of the restaurants mentioned in that post that nothing seems to have changed much, except for perhaps some prices. There is word however of the future opening of an offshoot of Crabtree’s Kittle House Restaurant, based in Chappaqua, on the Tarrytown waterfront, in the Hudson Harbor condo development under construction, adjacent to the Metro North commuter parking lot.

“One of the really great things about living in the Rivertowns, is the easy access to a number of waterfront restaurants at virtually all price points. From a $12 glass of Chardonnay at Half Moon on the Dobbs Ferry waterfront to a $4 plastic cup of Pinot Grigio at Sunset Cove in Tarrytown. When the light is just right and the breeze is just so, if you squint your eyes you can easily imagine yourself sitting out in the Hampton’s or on the North Shore of Long Island. Dining spots on the river have their own special charms though. Some, like Sunset Cove and Striped Bass in Tarrytown are even accessible by boat.
Every Rivertown has its own special place. Harvest-on-Hudson in Hastings-on-Hudson, Half Moon in Dobbs Ferry, Red Hat in Irvington and both Sunset Cove and Striped Bass in Tarrytown. Try to sample each one sometime this summer.”
