Letter: Reader: Fourth of July is a fraud

To the Editor, Frederick Douglass said, “What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July? A day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice, cruelty and false Christianity that he is the constant victim. Your constitution is predicated on a lie, your echoes of ‘freedom’ hollow […]

Letter: Response: ‘NYPD has a checkered past’

  To the Editor,  I would like to respond to the letter published on June 12 by Clifford Jackson of Larchmont titled “NYPD has a checkered past.” To begin with, I have been reading your publication for many years along with the Clifford Jackson letters that appear from time to time. I personally do not […]

Letter: Mayor, City Council wrong again

    To the Editor, The planned willful destruction of the New Rochelle Rowing Club is another blunder in the long list of misdirected choices of the City of New Rochelle. The rowing club building is structurally sound enough to outlast any of us. Not to mention the historical value. New Rochelle High School Nationals; […]

Letter: Republicans question Natchez comments

    To the Editor,  With regard to staff writer Jackson Chen’s article entitled “Natchez to run for mayor,” we the undersigned Village of Mamaroneck Republican Party district leaders, strongly doubt the veracity of Daniel Natchez’s statement that he “received support about a potential November run from both Republican and Democratic district leaders.” We reaffirm […]

Letter: Motive of MBYC support in question

    To the Editor, Please forgive me for questioning the motivation behind Ida Luckower’s letter, “Barry Avenue signs are mean-spirited,” in the May 15 edition of the Mamaroneck Review, saying that people who put signs up in their own yards are “mean spirited,” and that, “The signs violate the spirit of free speech.” How […]

Letter: Criticizing trustees is not an assault, lynch mob

To the Editor, At the Board of Trustees meeting on May 11, Village of Mamaroneck Democratic Committee Chairwoman Elizabeth Saenger compared the community’s reaction against the proposed changes to parking on Mamaroneck Avenue to a lynch mob. “The tone of that meeting two weeks ago [April 27] really shocked and scared me…I think you let […]

Letter: America still has a long way to go

    To the Editor, The racist emails of former Pelham Police Chief Alfred Mosiello is very typical of people in many communities of Westchester and beyond. These same people live in Little Falls, N.Y., Forked River, N.J., Mahopac, Bensonhurst and Howard Beach and certainly Staten Island. It would not matter to these same people […]

Letter: The mayor needs to lead by example

    To the Editor, In the Village of Mamaroneck, we have a problem with the tenor of public discourse.  And it’s not a small problem. We seem to have lost all sense of civility at Board of Trustees meetings, with the public screaming at trustees, and “reporting” about the meetings on Facebook with graphics […]

Letter: Years of neglect is MBYC problem

    To the Editor, I am writing in reference to Jackson Chen’s recent article on the sale of Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club, “MBYC on the market,” and must say that I read Ms. Rosenshein’s comments about her club with a mix of bewilderment, amusement and sadness. Firstly, she mentions that “all we want to […]

Letter: Barry Avenue signs are mean-spirited

    To the Editor, Some years ago, Mr. Bernard Rosenshein’s vision of “seasonal residences” on South Barry Avenue was approved by the Mamaroneck Village Board. Not “condos.” The destructive and mean-spirited litigious nature of some residents has hampered the ability for improvements to the 63-year-old Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club proposed by its current […]
