Something Besides a Groundhog Predicts Spring

Which do you think is a more accurate prediction of when spring will arrive: a furry animal that looks scared/agitated/amused or the new tables and chairs — that speak of summer and warm weather — at the Tarrytown viewing area?

OK, so the new furniture has nothing to do with predictions. It was a reach.

Architect Pat Jones, co-chair of Friends of the RiverWalk Park, told me the 501(c)(3) applied for and received a $60,000 grant from The Pew Charitable Trusts acting for another charity. In addition to the six tables at various places along RiverWalk are five new dog stations with plastic bags (in case you forget yours at home). Jones said another view scope (monoular) will be added by the fishing pier.

The group is rethinking waterfront property in the village since it received the grant, Jones said. In the meantime, check out the new furniture (are the holes in the tables for beach umbrellas?), enjoy the view and think spring!

I’d like to know what you think.
