  • Wrestling Rams off to good start in a round robin debut at Somers

  • Acosta Advisory helps T&F team lure diverse batch of top athletes
    It was at the major metropolitan area Kick Off Meet that launches the indoor winter Track & Field (T&F) season at the 168th St. New Balance Armory in New York City that Port Chester soccer great Jazmin (Jaz) Acosta came out of nowhere to win the long jump against all comers. 
  • Hoop Rams flunk opening game of season, lose to Carmel 54-41 minus best player

    It didn't start the way they wanted it to, didn't end the way they wanted it to, and didn't go the way they wanted it to go because the promising basketball Rams opened their season with a 54-41 away loss to a tough Carmel team that became a lot tougher because P.C. played without senior Jahmeek (Meek) Simpson, their best player, who was declared academically ineligible shortly before game time Tuesday.

  • B.B. hoops off to encouraging start
    Lacing up for the first time last Thursday, Dec. 1 after a long trip to Clarkstown South, the Blind Brook Trojans embarked on the beginning of their season-long journey.

  • Pleasantville blows out Lady Rams in regular season opener at home

  • Time traveling with T&F successes stretching from past to present

  • Wiley, Aldair head grid Rams honor roll of players earning post-season awards
    It was the end of the line for the over-achieving Port Chester High School football Rams when they beat traditional rival Mamaroneck 23-0 Nov. 3 to wind down a solid 6-4 winning season. The turnaround season included back-to-back loser's bracket playoff wins over Mount Vernon, White Plains and Mamaroneck and saw P.C. make the playoffs for the first time since an opening round loss to Poughkeepsie in 2002. 
  • Basketball Lady Rams’ final cuts add up to improved roster in flux

    Breaking up is hard to do at any time in your life, but especially in high school when you are on the verge of adulthood but the teen years are not yet over and you are not quite mature enough chronologically to deal with all you have to deal with no matter how grown up you think you are mentally and physically when it comes to life experience. And that even applies to sports. Especially when reality checks come into play involving hard choices.

  • Quarter century-old Italian staple moves to bright new quarters
    T&J, what can I say? After 26 years, it’s a staple in the Port Chester/Rye Brook community. And now that the Italian restaurant known for its delicious Neapolitan family recipes, traditional and gourmet pizza, homemade pasta and warm hospitality has moved a block away to spanking new quarters in a newly constructed building with twice the space, it is attracting a commensurate size crowd. Many are now coming out to eat rather than settling for takeout from the old place because they didn’t want to wait for a table.
  • New batch of eateries opening

    Another batch of restaurants that has been in the works for some time is finally coming to fruition while the conversion of a closed restaurant into a new one has just surfaced. 

    In Port Chester, T&J Restaurant & Pizzeria has just completed its move from 227 Westchester Ave. to much larger quarters with an outdoor patio on the ground floor of the brand new attractive office building at 10 Pearl St. constructed by Dominick Neri, president and CEO of Neri’s Bakery Products. 
  • Coyote Flaco still a Mexican gem after 25 years in Port Chester

    There are now nine Mexican restaurants in Port Chester, but only a few have the longevity of Coyote Flaco, which will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in December.

    It doesn’t look much different from the outside than it did 25 years ago, but tiny Coyote Flaco, located at 115 Midland Ave., has grown over the years, from a seating capacity of 20 to 30 inside and doubling from 25 to about 50 on the outside patio.

  • Port Chester resident recognized as Mount Rushmore’s chief carver

    The only classically trained stone carver in the tradition of Michelangelo who worked on Mount Rushmore wasn’t officially named the South Dakota monument’s chief carver until almost 50 years after his death.

    Luigi Del Bianco was a mystery to his grandson Lou, who only knew his grandfather for five or six years before he died. 
  • Salvation Army rings in the holiday season

    Port Chester resident Dakota Davis stands on the sidewalk on Westchester Avenue near its intersection with North Main Street and rings a bell to collect donations for the Salvation Army. Many of these bell ringers can be seen on sidewalks and in front of businesses during the holidays.

  • Bottling the spirit of New York

    Two local brewery owners prefer to fly under the radar, which is why their Port Chester base doesn’t even have a sign above the door.

    Noah Braunstein, 32, and Yoni Rabino, 31, of Neversink Spirits at 33 New Broad St. grew up with fond childhood memories of apple picking in nearby orchards. Add in the love for traditional European fruit brandy and eau de vie (clear, colorless fruit brandy translated to “water of life”) combined with two backgrounds in science from McGill and Wesleyan universities, and Neversink Spirits was born.
