The Villages: Music, Paving, and Tolls (Oh, My!)

This week in the villages: A much needed makeover is planned for three holey streets in Nyack. Three elected officials have something to say about future Mario Cuomo Tappan Zee Bridge tolls (hint: they’re not too happy). There’s free music in the parks Tuesday-Thursday and Sunday.

Volunteers Needed to Help Young Trees

Do you have a young street tree in front of your house? You can help it grow strong and stay healthy by watering it regularly during the summer and keeping it mulched. Just 2-3 inches of mulch suppresses weeds and keeps moisture in. (Keep the mulch away from the trunk.) If you do help your tree, Nyack Tree Project would love to hear from you. All are welcome to join the volunteers with the Nyack Tree Project. Contact Marcy Denker at
