Thought of the Day
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet. Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.

Yesterday's Thought Was
Wisdom outweighs any wealth.
By Sophocles  496 BCE - 406 BCE

Greek tragic dramatist and one of the great playwrights of the golden age of Greek Drama.

History And Antiquities
The following covers "History and Antiquities", a general collection of interesting facts, traditions, biographical sketches, and anecdotes about Westchester County and its towns. When reading the following, remember to keep in mind that this information has been written about two hundred years ago. Population statistics and events have not been revised to reflect current events and perspective. We think this adds to the historical flavor and interest of the writings, giving a different perspective on much of this information and written in an "older world" writing style. "Historical Collections of the State of New York, Published by S. Tuttle, 194 Chatham-Square, 1841
