Letter: There’s more to Playland than sound bites

To the Editor, The Rye City Review article on 2014 Playland Amusement Park attendance improvement references the Westchester County issued 2005 Playland Park attendance of one million visitors versus 2013 attendance of 400,000 visitors. In 2005, Playland’s unaudited attendance census of one million visitors was a formula of total cars entering parking lots factoring four […]

Letter: Vietnam: A victim of the west

To the Editor, May 2014 marked the 60th anniversary of the French defeat at Den Bien Puh in Vietnam. The Vietnamese had been controlled by Japan, and, after their defeat in WWII, Western imperialism reared its ugly head when France, along with the support of the U.S. and western allies, tried to make Vietnam a […]

Letter: We’re getting our parking permits, period

To the Editor: In 2009, the New York State Legislature passed Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 1662(d), giving Mamaroneck legal authority to create a residential parking district adjacent to the Larchmont Metronorth station. Then Gov. David Paterson signed the bill into law on July 26, 2009, and stae Sen. Suzy Oppenheimer announced, “This legislation empowers […]

Letter: In support of Karen Belanger

To the Editor, I am writing in support of the re-election of Karen Belanger to the Rye City Board of Education. Her experience as a current board member, Midland PTO president, Midland executive board member and her involvement in several Rye City School District committees speaks for itself. Belanger has proven herself to be a […]

Letter: Alvarez missing the point

To the Editor, It seems I have ruffled the feathers of the school superintendent of Rye and a few parents over one sentence in a previous letter. Apparently, the word insecure and its connotation, rather than its denotation, has been taken as an attack on the children as a whole and the parenting skills as […]

Letter: Make the Playhouse parking

To the Editor, Instead of developing the Mamaroneck Playhouse into condominiums or reviving it, I have another suggestion. The village might acquire the property, convert the front section into retail and office space, and demolish the rear section of the building. Then, the village could combine the rear section with the existing lot behind CVS […]

Letter: If you fix it, we will come, Bow Tie

To the Editor, I don’t know why Bow Tie doesn’t realize what kind of business they can be bringing in if only they refurbished the [Mamaroneck Playhouse]. With all the restaurants on the avenue, it’s a gold mine if done properly. My husband and I would definitely go to the movies in Mamaroneck if it […]
