Living in Paine Heights, New Rochelle, I belong to our local Neighborhood Association, and having listed a majestic home with wonderful architectural detailing in the Beechmont area of New Rochelle, I felt compelled to also write about their local Neighborhood Association. Aptly entitled, The Beechmont Association . As an aside, the very first Beechmont Association Meeting Minutes were printed on July 4th, 1904 stating ”
As the pioneers of Beechmont, we desire to record our interest in our growth in the City of New Rochelle, believing that he who provides a home for self and family is not only just with his own but also influences by his example to others, and that good citizenship is based upon a pure appreciation of domestic responsibilities, molding the principles and policies of the nation.”
For yearly dues of $50, the local residents receive the “Beechmont Bugle“, meet yearly to discuss any concerns the neighbors might have (this year, the meeting will be held at Iona College on a Sunday afternoon so children can attend), and the Association was largely responsible for the pretty new fountains at Beechmont Lake, and they used to have a yearly dinner.
New Rochelle is Great!
