[ARCHIVED] The most quiet Halloween ever

Con Ed gas line repair near Manhattan Ave will create inconveniences

I have been riding with Police Chiefs on Halloween night for 28 years! I started this Halloween tradition years ago because there was significant mischief taking place. One year a car was set on fire. Lots of eggs thrown around. And, some property damage. Former Police Chief John Kapica spoke with the Town Board and decided to allocate significant resources to our Halloween night - so you and your property would be safe. Early on we even had a police bus driving around town - picking up kids who were creating problems for residents and sending them to the police HQ to be picked up.

As the years progressed -problems declined. Today, I spent a few hours with our new Police Chief Brian Ryan. Halloween evening was very quiet--there were no calls, no complaints, no problems. The most quiet Halloween ever. Good job Greenburgh Police Chief Brian Ryan and your team of exceptionally dedicated police officers who helped out tonight.

Please be advised that the on-going Con Ed gas line repair construction project along Tarrytown Road, (Route 119), in the eastbound lane near the intersection of Manhattan Avenue is scheduled to continue on a 24 hour basis through Monday, November 4, 2019.

Please allow extra time when traveling along this roadway or consider an alternate route.

Some residents are complaining about the inconveniences. However, better to be inconvenienced than to have a power outage  or gas explosion. The gas pipes being replaced are from the 1930s, I have been told.
