Rivertowns Square Rendering

From 914INC at Westchester Magazine:

“Once a downscale, sleepy Rivertown squeezed between Hastings-on-Hudson and Irvington, Dobbs Ferry has taken a giant leap to the forefront with a wave of commercial, residential, and lifestyle improvements.
The biggest news in the village is the expected completion this fall of Rivertowns Square, a $150 million mixed-use development next to the Saw Mill at Lawrence Street. The project will turn an abandoned research laboratory into a….”

The Irvington Penguin Plunge Is March 22, 2015, At 1 PM

This years Penguin Plunge, which hopefully signals the end of winter, will be held on the beach at Matthiessen Park, on the Irvington Waterfront, Sunday March 22, at 1 PM. A fundraising event at its core, in past years it has raised money for Irvington senior programs, open gym for teens, summer camp scholarships, the July 4th community fireworks celebration and additional revenue for the Park & Recreation Department’s budget. The March 22 date appears optimistic, given that we have had one of the coldest winters to date and the amount of ice in the Hudson River currently impedes all water access. If you want to give it a try this year, full details can be found on the event website at: https://sites.google.com/site/irvingtonplunge/

UPDATE: The Irvington Penguin Plunge is in postponement until its new date Sunday April 26.

Once or twice a year I allow myself a post, not Rivertowns Real Estate centric and this just caught my eye from Hamptons Curbed, on this Friday in late summer. All pools were designed by Greg Darvin of Pristine Pools. Click on the link below for the full article and gallery.

2014 Irvington Penguin Plunge Set For April 6

Its that time of year again, when only the bravest Irvington residents and sympathetic non-residents decide to jump in the Hudson River for a good cause. This years event was previously postponed until March 16 and now has been postponed again until Sunday, April 6th at 1:00 p.m, presumably because the Hudson was so cold this year it actually froze over from shore. Given the current weather it can be assumed it is not much warmer now. You have a mere 13 days to get a team together or donate to the cause.
