The BHG Rand Real Estate 2015 Fall Events Guide

bear-mountain-bridge-autumn1The Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty; Fall Events Guide is out. With information on a multitude of events in the Hudson Valley it seems there is something to do for everyone this season.
In particular, don’t miss the Dobbs Ferry “Festa” on Saturday September 26th and stop by our office at 108 Main Street. We will be raffling off a number of items including an Apple watch and a Basket of Cheer. It’s also a great opportunity to experience what makes the Rivertowns such a special place to live.
Also, in the near future, is the always well attended Dobbs Ferry Halloween Parade. Look for an update on this in October.

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.

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.

Dobbs Ferry Halloween Parade 2013

Halloween 2012

Another Successful Halloween at the Rand Realty office. 2013

Another Successful Halloween at the Rand Realty office. 2013


Dobbs Ferry celebrates Halloween in its usual big way with the annual Halloween Parade down Cedar and Main streets on Thursday, October 31. Generally starting in the vicinity of 4PM there are always a few younger goblins, who perhaps have earlier bedtimes or homework, showing up here at Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty at 3PM. We are usually overwhelmed by the number of spookily dressed trick or treaters and are continually amazed at their imaginative costumes. The homemade costumes are really the best. This year we will have our usual scary window costumes, flying bats on our awnings and even the occasionally more frighteningly dressed Realtor, handing out candy. Come early while we still have treats. The village of Dobbs Ferry will be providing entertainment by Joe Rooney.

Dobbs Ferry Lands In The Wall Street Journal

This past Saturday’s, August 3rd edition of the Wall Street Journal featured a great review of living in Dobbs Ferry. Two Realtors were interviewed, myself included, as well as the Dobbs Ferry Mayor, Hartley Connett. In addition to great commentary and information on the flavors of the village, some of Dobbs Ferry’s wonderful dining and shopping destinations were mentioned. Featured on this list were Half Moon Restaurant and The Cookery, as well as the Fiamor and Affordables boutiques.  All in all, a great article in a nationally read, financial newspaper.
The full article can either be viewed on the wsj.com site, generally by subscription only, at:
