Warburton Avenue’s southern end is still one of Yonkers’ most charming streets, with old house rooftops low enough to catch long views of the Palisades cliffs. Girl Scouts, Scout Moms, Mason brothers and Friends volunteers tidied up Warburton on a sunny morning in late October, and caught the cliffs’ fiery color.
At the center of the volunteer activity was the historic James H Farrell Lodge (est. 1879), on Warburton near Lamartine Avenue. The lodge is one block from the aqueduct trail. Teamwork made it all come together!
Tom Meier, Department of Public Works Commissioner, came to inspect and commend! We all appreciated his encouragement.
Girl Scout Makaylah Jones works with Masonic brother Harold McKoy. Harold wants every Yonkers teen to know where to find the historic aqueduct trail.
Volunteer Dorothy DeWitz, pictured with The Friends’ President Mavis Cain, rode the train to Warburton - and then walked 5 miles home to Spuyten Duyvil in The Bronx!
Girl Scout Brook worked with her mother Gail. They are both meticulous!
