Residents in the Grand Street/GI Valley area--and other locations in the village--awoke to the sound one very loud, very low-flying helicopter--complete with uber-spotlight--scanning the streets below. (Click on the photo.) There are unconfirmed reports that the "NYPD" was searching for someone (there were also multiple black SUV's parked in front of the apartment building)--and that they "got him".
Thanks for getting a photo. So often you'll see these things happen and then there are the claims that no one know what you're talking about.ReplyDelete
What is the "GI Valley?"ReplyDelete
GI Valley is what the area beneath Grand Street, behind the apartment building, used to be called.It's all private houses now--Beekman, etc.ReplyDelete
Following World War II, Croton-on-Hudson’s importance as a railroad town diminished as diesel replaced steam engines and long-distance passenger service was gradually discontinued. However, it continued to expand in size and population as American serviceman returned from the war and settled in the community. An area known as “GI Valley” developed below Grand Street around 1945 and Wolf Road was developed in 1947. Many homes in the Harmon area were also constructed around this time. After World War II, the Village became more of a commuter suburb, with many residents commuting to workplaces in New York City and other employment centers outside of Croton-on-Hudson.ReplyDelete
Anyone find out what the helicopter was all about?ReplyDelete
Nothing. Since the NYPD was supposedly involved, it may be some time.Delete
