White Plains seems to want more people with multiple plans to build luxury apartments that are over 6 stories high. And, the new buildings already constructed in the last decade or so have not been able to attract enough tenants to be at full capacity. But, at the same time retail stores are closing and the roads and streets are a mess.
Appeals is what makes the death penalty process very expensive. I am against the death penalty because it takes years before it takes place. Death Penalty does not deter crime and we need to do more on prevention. View Comment
Title of article should say Westchester, not White Plains as most of article is about places outside of White Plains. Roads need to be repaved. Most fillers are a temporary fix and extreme weather erases all the patches and the roads remain a mess. Sidewalks are also horrible. Rt 22 has been a mess for years. View Comment
Filling potholes is a temporary fix. Roads need to be repaved. Roads in White Plains that were repaved last year did better. Sidewalks are also in bad shape and filling in the holes just come out during the winter. Roads and bridges do not last forever but this problem is worldwide. Drive slower when you can. View Comment
Like Hillary but all the negativity that has already gone on will just get worse. With Republicans in majority what have they got done so far? If all eligible people voted the government might be totally different. View Comment
Why don't they remodel The Galleria? I think The Westchester is still the nicest mall in city but bathrooms could use work. Developers are planning more retail stores across st on Westchester Ave and the Pavilion so too many stores have ended up with lots of empty stores all over city. They should have shoveled outside Nordstrom better this winter. It was hard to cross by Paulding entrance. Sidewalks and roads to stores are in terrible condition. Too many stores and restaurants are putting everyone out of business and now that Apple has another store in Yonkers, people are going elsewhere to shop. View Comment
One does not have to be stupid to get scammed. I got calls from people claiming they are from Microsoft and I have a virus. I asked for their names and a call back number and they hung up. Was I supposed to call police?
Sisters established college in 1923 (Good Council College) and it was College of White Plains in 1972. College taken over by Pace but they discontinued undergrad program and there was a law suit. Mercy had a program but in building at corner of S Broadway & Martine (UFC gym). View Comment
Where do you get 125yrs? The Sisters of Divine Compassion brought the property in 1890 but the Academy dates from 1922. Good Council Training School dates from 1901 and in 1918 a high school level was added. It is sad that the school is closing but I hope the buyer of the property preserves the older structures or at least some of them that are on the property. View Comment
Many state routes are without sidewalks and areas to cross. It is very dangerous and when people do not have cars it is very risky. I live in an area with sidewalks and crossing areas and vehicles still disobey the law by not yielding to pedestrians. It is unfortunate for people to die getting to and from work. Pedestrians need to be aware that dark clothing makes them invisible to drivers. Employers with housekeepers might consider driving them to the bus stop. Many bus stops are isolated spots along roads without sidewalks. View Comment
This hotel took 3 years of horrible construction and things are still on-going. The road is still not complete. City needs more oversight to construction that takes so long to complete. I hope all inside construction will be complete by the 2015. View Comment
As a pedestrian, see cars going on this street the wrong way too often. Speeding might have been another factor. Some cars that turned right from Martine to S Lex were going into the Galleria entrance on S Lex. Firemen and police don't always obey the law in city but this accident was unfortunate for the people in the other car. View Comment
Fines are not going to stop the hard to enforce law. An accident might but these people don't care. Reason for our insurance being high and reason for me to buy a new car with safety features to protect me from those who don't care.
The authorities don't know what is the safest way proceed. This is the constant changes but doctor in NYC did not even restrict his movement and he got sick. Quarantine or isolation needs to be in countries where these people are providing care. Too many are getting sick from caring for Ebola patients. People are getting worried and perhaps with good cause. Isolation for 21 days is a long time and aide workers should expect that homecoming is not going to be easy. They isolated the astronauts didn't they?
Why can't the quarantine be done in African nations affected by the organizations sending aide workers there? Will all aid workers or others like Journalists be upfront at airports? Too many aid workers are contracting the virus caring for those infected so no matter how many precautions are taken, the virus is spreading. Being quarantined is not simple especially when not knowing ahead, you will be in such a situation. I had to be isolated for days after taking radioactive iodine and luckily I live alone. One has to have food/ supplies to be able to be self contained. They could set up quarantine centers in African nations affected before going on a plane home to US or other countries. The cost of cleaning just one bowling alley is crazy at $25,000. Or did I hear wrong. People are going to flood emergency rooms. The Flu and the other virus affecting children are often not considered problematic but more die from flu every year. Do you get vaccinated or where a mask out in public. Be safe and keep washing your hands!
What is always the scariest is living near these homes with over the top decorations that promote violence. People go too far. The article has White Plains in the heading but the picture is from Ossining.
