Poor Brook Park

Posted on 31 January 2012 by Editor

Nakoma Brook runs quietly down from the hills and watershed above Sloatsburg, cutting through The Flats neighborhood and under Rt. 17 until it meets the Ramapo River near Rhodes North Tavern.

Some coats and pants don’t fit correctly and some should just be retired. And the problem is, the Sloatsburg Fire Department has a lot of them. Continue Reading

Road To Nowhere

Posted on 22 January 2012 by Editor

A common, recurring refrain from the project’s developer and supporters goes something like this, from a 2008 Times Herald-Record article: “The earth movers and jackhammers are on standby.” After much controversy and changes to the project, Tuxedo Reserve is still on standby. Continue Reading

Proprietors Lisa and Alex Zhao have quietly gone about converting blight into a place where beauty is the business of the day. Like bees to summer flowers, customers are drawn to the cozy bustle of the Zhaos’ Golden Nails & Spa II, whether for a quick touchup or complete makeover or to pass on the rites of a manicure and pedicure from mother to daughter.
