AND NOW...MORE EVENING FREE PARKING IN UPPER VILLAGE

Courtesy of the Croton United FB page: The popularity of the dining options in the Upper Village has caused some changes designed to increase the spots available for evening customers.

The middle section of the Vassallo (Merwyn Oak) lot will now be free parking after 6pm on weekdays and free 2 hour parking all day Saturday. Because there is less need for employee parking after 6, there shoul
d still be sufficient spaces for holders of employee permits.

Mayor Schmidt is glad that the change is necessary: “We were getting feedback that there were not enough public spaces since more people are coming to eat in the evening. READ MORE HERE http://bit.ly/2wuo5qD

MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

Worth looking at again - The 1941 ad to the right was a bear to salvage at the time--the page was moldy, the colors faded, and restoring it took almost an hour! It was for an an insurance company and had lovely scrollwork as well--but this was all that we could get--the message made all the hard work at bringing it "back" worth it. 

It's followed by one of our favorite toys from a past auction at Croton's own SERIOUSTOYZ.com: the City Dairy Milk Horse Drawn Wagon", 1937, Rich Toys, 20", tin litho & painted wood--in super mint conditon.  Definite faux flattie potential!

And finally, an oldie but goodie--an Alberta Christmas tree, circa 1920.  Click on the photos and enjoy.

MEDIA ALERT-CORNucopia Pops Up at Philipsburg Manor Labor Day Weekend

SLEEPY HOLLOW, NY (Aug. 18, 2017) — A sweet way to send off summer, CORNucopia returns to Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow this Labor Day weekend. Families looking for the perfect way to wrap a summer of fun can check out the crafts, live music, and tasty treats at this celebration of all things corny. The event takes place Saturday through Monday, Sept. 2-4, from 10am-5pm each day.

Kids can get hands-on with activities like crafting cornhusk brooms, making their own butter, and designing scarecrows. They’ll race to the finish in the child-sized “mini maize maze” and the corn-shucking contest, and test their skills in a variety of corn-themed games. Live bluegrass and folk music by the Tappan Cowboys entertains visitors throughout the day. Revelers fond of two-stepping can put their best foot forward during the barn dances with the help of a caller. A juggler performs a-maize-ing feats with ears of corn and more.

Food selections available for purchase include fresh roasted corn, veggie corn burgers, corn tortilla casserole, cornbread, corn muffins, kettle corn, and popcorn, plus draft beers and draft root beer from Captain Lawrence Brewery. Blue Pig of Croton-on-Hudson will feature sweet corn ice cream.
