OCA update-Yonkers division:
Road crossing improvements-
After some initial discussions with local FOCA members, the city of Yonkers has returned to the practice of repainting crosswalks at the 20 or so road crossings of the OCA trail within city borders. The city has an aggressive and ongoing road restoration program and have responded to requests that they repaint trail crosswalks at road crossings. In addition, they will replace old signs with new hi-viz versions showing updated ped/cycle graphics. The city engineer has determined that curb cuts are appropriate at some crossings and will include these improvements in future road work. Finished improvements so far, with more to come:

O'Dell Ave - new curb cuts, crosswalks, and signs
Arthur Ave - new crosswalks and signs
Glenwood Ave - new crosswalks and signs
Wicker St - new crosswalks and signs

Happy Birthday Old Croton Aqueduct!!
The big celebration took place on Oct 14, 1842, with Croton HighBalls (Croton water with a splash of lemon) served with sandwiches to an enthusiastic audience.

A five mile long parade ended at a 50 ft fountain with a chorus of women singers. Imagine something as simple as water causing so much excitement,

But it was Croton Water!!

After a concerted push at the Dobbs Ferry Festa, the membership rolls of the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct reached our goal of 500 - and then topped it by 10 additional members!

Our 500th member (shown at left) received a gift basket of caps, t-shirts, flowers and prosecco, plus a tuneless – but enthusiastic – serenade.

Thank you all for showing how important the Old Croton Aqueduct is in your lives.
