ACTOR HOWARD DA SILVA, THE CROTON CONNECTION...
Who we absolutely loved as Ben Franklin in the film version of the play, 1776. One of the BEST Franklins ever--and his star turn as Tammany Hall's Boss Tweed remains as relevant today--sadly--as it was then. Click on the images below. Village historian Dodie Pezanowski tells us that Da Silva lived in Croton for a great many years near what is known as the village's pump house.
