There's a house on Orchard St in Peekskill that's pretty decked out, too. Sometimes you'll see a mysterious dogcat roaming nearby. He's a friendly fellow but clearly from another world. The greatest danger in the area is getting egged. A friend of mine was visiting from Pennsylvania and some hoodlums egged his car at the intersection of Orchard and Highland. He was pretty peeved at this good old-fashioned Peekskill welcome but soon relaxed with some breadballs at the Roach.
While this article was published as originally submitted, it was eventually edited due to spacing limitations. Out of respect for my abiding by this requirement, I am adding as a comment, the two removed paragraphs:
"Governor Andrew Cuomo was not in attendance. He had been visiting the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico on a campaign tour the day before. A call to his re-election headquarters asking to comment on the Honor Flight was not returned."
"Terrence Murphy, candidate for the 40th District of the State Senate also took part in the Honor Flight. He volunteered as a guardian to escort the Veterans during their daylong visit to Washington."
In regard to my fact checking which included contacting Mr. Cuomo's campaign office, I also contacted the campaign office of Justin Wagner, running for the 40th District of the State Senate. It should also be noted Mr. Wagner was unable to attend. According to his election staff, he was taking part at a campaign rally in Mount Kisco Saturday morning.
Right on man! You should feel very lucky that you live in FL. Scarsdale, NY's winter last year was so bad, I couldn't get my car out of the garage until mid-april!
