Daniel Reingold’s letter [“An open letter to congressional candidate Jamaal Bowman,” June 19], written shortly before our recent primary, offered a shockingly myopic polemic related to the election of our congressional representative for District 16. Perhaps his letter is an example of why c…

The analogies put forth in Mr. DePietto’s letter [“Feiner is doing Greenburgh no favor with his planned appeal,” June 5] are simply nonsense. Comparing either President Xi reneging on a promise to allow Hong Kong some independence, or the fascist president of Brazil threatening martial law, …

I find it disappointing to see SpaceX eclipse NASA as the institution that Americans rely upon for our presence in space and as the symbol of American space exploration. Back in 1969 when the world saw American astronauts landing on the moon, Americans felt pride at an accomplishment, which …

Since single use plastic bags are no longer legal in New York, some stores have done away with recycling bins, making it difficult to find a place to deposit soft plastics. It’s not just the shopping bags which can be recycled but also bread bags, cereal box liners, the plastic packaging of …

The deadly encounters between black citizens and the police in the news, and the resulting protests, may have finally initiated changes that were long overdue. In commendable support of that effort, one Edgemont High School student set up a memorial for George Floyd and collected funds for T…

Recently, several neighbors congratulated me on being featured on an Edgemont Facebook page. I had no idea this page even existed, but evidently it’s run by an anonymous Edgemonter who highlights members of the community and shouts out, “Edgemont Loves You!”

Anthony Scarpino has experience and judicial integrity. He consistently performs his duties well while setting an example of fairness and courtesy. In short Mr. Scarpino is most highly qualified to continue as district attorney of Westchester County. Let’s vote for him to stay in that office.

It is too easy to feel removed from the racist murders of innocent black people like George Floyd, Amaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor from the vantage point of Scarsdale, where 76.4% of the population is white and 15.1% Asian (https://datausa.io/profile/geo/scarsdale-ny). Black people do not ev…

This year marks a change in the typical school board election. In normal years, any resident wishing to run for a seat on the school board would be required to gather a number of signatures to qualify for the ballot. Gov. Andrew Cuomo suspended this hurdle this year due to the pandemic. It w…

Contrary to what you might have heard, when Mexico sends its people to the United States, it sends you its best. My husband and I are educated in the fields of law and business administration. We are happy to be living in the Heathcote School area for four years with our four kids.

This year’s Memorial Day in Scarsdale was one that will never be forgotten. No bands, no marches, no speeches at Chase Park and Boniface Circle, just a small gathering of veterans and friends.

Scarsdale, I first drove your streets three years ago. I fell in love with your manicured lawns, your expansive fields, your pool. I did the cost-benefit analysis most New Yorkers do when they contemplate leaving the city with their young children. On one hand, don’t-have-to-apply-to-or-join…
