Rivertowns Artists Studio Tours: Sat. April 27 & Sun. April 28

2013 RiverArts Studio Tour

2013 RiverArts Studio Tour

This coming weekend marks the 20th Annual RiverArts Studio Tour of local artists in the Rivertowns. Some artists are well known and some artists have never been featured before. A total of 80 artists studios will be open to the public on both Saturday and/or Sunday, April 27 and 28th. The studios are located in Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson and Irvington. This will be a unique opportunity to meet and greet local artists, see them at work in their own environment, engage with them and possibly purchase their art. Some of the artists involved, whose work I am familiar with, include Mark Gilliland, Larry and Peggy Blizard, Eva Bouhassira, Tim Duch and John Maggiotto.
“The mission of RiverArts is to produce a wide range of high quality cultural events and educational programs which diversify participation and engage our communities in the support and understanding of the arts and artists, thereby enriching our quality of life.”

Second Quarter RE Market Results for Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson, Irvington, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow

According to the Westchester Multiple Listing Service the average sale price in the rivertowns is down this past quarter, over the same quarter last year, by $102,166, representing a 13.4% drop. The average sale price dropped from $762,874 to $660,708. The number of actual listings on the market for the same quarterly period is also down from 210 homes in 2010 to 178 homes this year, in the 6 villages combined. However the average days on the market, from the initial listing date until the final closing date, has decreased somewhat from 210 days in 2010 to 178 days in 2011. This information may tend to suggest that sellers are finally coming to grips with the current real estate market, pricing their homes accordingly and as a result selling them marginally faster. These numbers are somewhat less dramatic when spread out over all the villages and towns in the Westchester County area at large, as can be seen in the enclosed link:

Rivertown Square Development Review Moving Along

The review process for the massive development proposed on the Akzo Chemical campus, near New York Sports Club in Dobbs Ferry, is proceeding in a timely manner. The development is slated to include over 200 residential apartments, a 100 unit hotel, a 70,000 square foot supermarket and a number of smaller retail stores.
Among other concerns the village of Dobbs Ferry will have to deal with, traffic certainly reigns at the top. Given that the Saw Mill Parkway is limited to passenger vehicles only, with no trucks allowed, there is some question as to who is going to bear the brunt of what it would seem would be a regular influx of delivery trucks, some of which will be large tractor trailers to service a 70,000 sq.ft. supermarket. Will it be the lone Dobbs Ferry residential street that services the area, Ogden Avenue, or will it be Lawrence Street in Ardsley, which would further exacerbate the Ardsley traffic woes?
Dobbs Ferry is expecting the Draft Environmental Impact Statement from the developer later this month. That document will be expected to answer this question as well as a whole host of others, such as possible negative effects on property values, mitigation measures and alternative plans. Once the DEIS is in the Board of Trustees hands, they will have 45 days to determine its thoroughness and to decide if it is ready to be released to the public for further review. The public will then have at least 30 days, with possible extensions, to weigh in on the DEIS before it is returned to the developer to address any outstanding concerns.
These are important meetings that shouldn’t be missed by interested persons. Village meeting agendas are generally posted in the police station, among a variety of other places.
