This Week in The Villages: What do Dec 15, 1955 and August 25, 2017 have in common? History will remember both dates as the day the Tappan Zee Bridge officially opened. On August 25, the first span of the replacement Tappan Zee Bridge is set to open to four lanes of westbound traffic.
On Tuesday listen for music in Memorial Park and watch for a movie shoot on Main Street. Nyack’s downtown will used in an episode of the Amazon original Sneaky Pete. Looking ahead…you still have a chance to have a say about the future of Nyack’s Waterfront. Click to take the survey before time runs out!
Village of Nyack
Nyack’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) Steering Committee wants to hear from residents, business owners and fans of the village and the Hudson River. Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey. In order get input from more respondents, the survey period has been extended to mid-August.
Amazon’s Sneaky Pete will be filming in downtown on Tuesday, August 1. As part of this event, Nyack will be transformed into the Town of Rose Dale. Veteran’s Memorial Park will be the main focus of the shoot. Then, on Wednesday, August 2, the crew will film at the Nyack Center. Several local business storefronts will be dressed up. So don’t be confused by the “Rose Dale” signage hung on Main St (at Cedar St)–Nyack is still Nyack.
This week, Music On The Hudson, the weekly summer concert series each Tuesday in Memorial Park, features Crush, delivering non-stop, get-out-of-your-seat music from the bands you love to hear from the 80’s, 90’s and today.

Tappan Zee Bridge Switch Scheduled
Goodbye Malcolm Wilson, hello Mario Cuomo. Rockland County bound traffic on the Tappan Zee Bridge will be shifted from the 1955 original cantilever bridge to the north span of the new cable stay bridge on August 25, 2017. The NYS Thruway Authority and Tappan Zee Constructors will shift four lanes of westbound/northbound traffic to the new span on Friday night, Aug. 25. The second step of moving four lanes of eastbound/southbound traffic to that span will begin later this fall. Four lanes of traffic in each direction will be separated by a concrete barrier. That traffic pattern will remain in effect until the second crossing is complete, and both spans of the bridge open in 2018.
TZC continues to install structural steel sections and stay cables on the eastbound main span, with connections to the Westchester approach occurring this week. Connections to the eastbound Rockland approach are scheduled to occur in the coming weeks
