recyclingshedDid you know that Scarsdale now has a “Take It or Leave It“area at the Scarsdale Recycling Center? Now you can drop off your unwanted (but useable) items at the shed and take whatever you like! It’s another great step towards trash reduction and more reusing in Scarsdale. Non-residents can take from it as well.

The shed is at the Scarsdale Recycling Center (110 Secor Road) and residents can drop off and pick up during its open hours which are Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 3 pm.

Furniture should still go in the Furniture Sharehouse bin (right next to the shed) but everything that Furniture Sharehouse doesn’t accept such as sports equipment, toys, baby items can go in the shed. Even the shed itself was recycled from an old bus stop in Scarsdale.

What are some of the items to take or leave? Here are just a few ideas: Skis, boots, bats, balls, gloves, bikes, scooters, tennis equipment, golf equipment, baby items, toys, strollers, board games, kids games, exercise equipment, gardening items, tools and kitchen equipment and tools.


VigilA candlelight Vigil to End Gun Violence in Scarsdale on December 16 is one of nearly 100 events taking place across the country to honor Sandy Hook and demand an end to gun violence.

Volunteers with the Westchester County chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, will gather on December 16th in partnership with the Scarsdale Congregational Church, the Interfaith Coalition Against Gun Violence, the Scarsdale/Hartsdale Interfaith Clergy Association, and the American Muslim Women’s Association to shine a light on the countless lives lost and touched by gun violence since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that took the lives of 20 children and six educators. The event is one of nearly 100 across the country commemorating the six-year mark of Sandy Hook and asking lawmakers to act to prevent gun violence.

In the six years since Sandy Hook, Moms Demand Action volunteers, along with survivors of gun violence and other gun violence prevention advocates, have fought hard – and successfully – to change America’s lax gun laws, but much more must be done. Nearly 100 Americans are shot and killed every day, and hundreds more are wounded.

The event, run by Scarsdale parents’ Maroon and White organization, is a time to celebrate team and individual accomplishments, marking the end to another great fall season. This year’s athletes showed incredible strength and resilience, especially in their adaptations to new venues with the closing of the Butler Turf Field for renovations. Each year, senior athletes are especially recognized, as this is often the last time that the senior Raiders will participate in these fall sports before they embark to college and beyond.

Field Hockey: Coming in with a new coach, math teacher and former Yale field hockey player Lauren Barton, the Scarsdale field hockey team made the most of their season. Field hockey is known throughout the high school as an extremely close-knit team. Their cohesiveness surely paid off on the field, as the team went 13-9 in the regular season, and made it to a close game against rival Mamaroneck during the Section 1 Semifinal game. Senior Felder noted that the highlight of her season was the team’s win against Bronxville, a strong competitor from the year before. Senior Lena Glickman noted that the highlight of her season was the playoff game against Mamaroneck, as the student cheering section was “electric” and made her last game as a field hockey Raider a memorable one. The team is losing 9 seniors, who will all be missed in the program next year.

BoysVolleyballBoys Volleyball (left to right) Sam Hoffman, Charlie Quill, Andy Cohen, Eitan Altman Boys Volleyball: This marks the third year of the Boys Volleyball program at Scarsdale. Thus, the Senior this year feel a strong connection to the team, most having played since their Sophomore years. Senior Captain Sam Hoffman noted his favorite moment of the season was the team’s sole win against Eastchester. The teams had battled back and forth in the past few years, and the win was one of many milestones that will solidify the Raiders as a substantial boys volleyball threat.

One of the many sports affected by the turf’s closure, the boys soccer team made the most
Noam Cherki, soccer, highlight of season was when “I would guess 100” came to Quaker Ridge to watch the team beat Fox Lane in the Playoffs. Quinn Burke said that he’s gonna miss “all the kids I’ve been playing with since middle school and the amazing four years of high school.” The team will miss their 9 graduating Seniors, most of whom have been playing together since the rec league.

GirlsSwimGirl's Swimming (Top row) Nicole Kasabian, Danielle Lemisch, Emma Cahaly, Alexis Daniel, Mao Fukada (bottom row) Maggie Brew, Mia Carroll, Mia Dell’Orto Girls' Swimming: The girls swimming team had a historic season, having a 9-0 undefeated streak for the first time in 30 years. The team, filled with strong talent in both swimming and diving, made a huge splash in their league and the section at large. Senior Captain Maggie Brew noted that not only was it fun to win, but also to feel the team spirit and involvement that contributed to these wins. She mentioned, “it was great seeing how excited the team was about these wins, and seeing how much closer we all got because of our spirit throughout the season to maintain the streak.”

The football team will miss the excitement that comes with their 16 graduating seniors.

The volleyball team had another successful season, making it to the section semifinals. Senior Captain Rena Li said that her favorite moment of the season was beating White Plains in the quarterfinals, because the Raiders had split a win and a loss with White Plains during the regular season, and this third match allowed Scarsdale to come out on top. Like most nostalgic Seniors, Li said that she will miss seeing her team everyday, and will cherish the bonds and she formed with teammates on and off the court.

Elizabeth Sinyavin, of the girls tennis team, said that the highpoint of the team’s season was their win against Ursuline for the first time in 3 years, which set the tone for a great team dynamic in the rest of the season. The tennis team will miss their seniors but return a strong group of underclassmen hoping to continue the Raider tennis spirit.

GirlsSoccerGirls Soccer: Allison Stafford, Jaeda Dean, Ella Ansell, Christina Coco, Riley Edlitz, Amanda Ruzumna, Elizabeth Elcick, Isabelle Riback, Nayumi Parente, Kelly Rutherford, Paige Barlow Girls' Soccer: The girls soccer team will miss their 11 seniors. The team had an incredible season, coming back from a rocky start and taking the eventual section champions Arlington to overtime in their semifinal game. Senior Allison Stafford, who is headed to Amherst to play soccer, noted that she will miss the team camaraderie built with her fellow seniors and the rest of the team this season.

Although most senior athletes are nostalgic about leaving their beloved teams behind, the bonds formed are testaments to the incredible value of high school sports. Teamwork and leadership skills are fostered on Raider teams every year. With these qualities, Scarsdale athletes are prepared to take on challenges in the future.

ChristmasTreeThere were smiles all around on Friday night November 30 when Santa arrived in Scarsdale Village on a fire truck and the holiday tree and menorah were illuminated in Boniface Circle.

The festive event featured food, Christmas carolers, kids crafts, face painting and hot chocolate and was a hit with kids and adults too. Though a wintery mix was falling, no one seemed to notice.

The event was sponsored by Scarsdale Village, the Scarsdale Business Alliance, the Acceleration Project and many willing volunteers. Thanks to Jane Veron, Amy Nadasdi, Dalya Kahn and Vanessa Siderow for their leadership in making the event a runaway success.

It was the second annual “Light the Dale” event and from the community response it seems sure to become a tradition.

seinfeldNews about Martine’s excellent baked goods has gone national! On Monday 11-12, we got this photo of none other than Jerry Seinfeld and Ricky Gervais who were inside Martine’s in Scarsdale buying a chocolate babka.

The two comedians drove up to Scarsdale as part of their series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” and also had breakfast at City Limits in White Plains.

Now that Martine’s is famous will it be even harder to get a parking spot on East Parkway and get a table inside Martine's?

Thanks to Jon Drucker for the photos of the celebrities.
