A plate of pancakes at On the Way Cafe or a nice deli sandwich from Playland Market always goes down easy. But pulling into each of these Rye go-to food joints recently has been a bumpy experience.
No more – its all been smoothed out due to a recently completed paving job by Westchester County. The temporary patch work was done back in May, when Rye guy and County Executive George Latimer, who lives in the neighborhood, saw the parking area was in “terrible shape”.
At the time he told us “I wasn’t originally sure [the parking lot was County property] but we checked it out and it was us. So we do the immediate fix and plan to do the full treatment thereafter,” Latimer told MyRye.com.
Always helpful to have the top guy in the neighborhood. Back when Latimer was the local State Assemblyman (the position currently held by Steve Otis), we would hold local citizen coffees and On the Way Cafe was one of his coffee spots. Hugh J. Greechan, the County’s Commissioner of the Department of Public Works and Transportation, also lives in the neighborhood.
