The wine store in Sloatsburg has undergone a transformation

Posted on 13 October 2017 by Editor

Welcome the new owners of Sloatsburg Wine, located in the village center shopping mall. Sisters Olga Lukashyk and Iryna Moskalyk have taken on the wine and spirit store and hope you help make the establishment a great success.

Posted on 03 October 2017 by Editor

The Village of Sloatsburg’s skate park has fallen into disrepair due to its particular location at the Community Fields — the concrete surface has undergone repeated flooding and cycles of freezing and thawing, leaving the rink unrepairable.

The Skate Rink at the Community Fields was built in the 1980s during the resurgence of public skating and roller blading. It now exists in a state of limbo — currently both unusable and unrepairable.
