Construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge, that will carry the NY Thruway across the Hudson between Tarrytown and Nyack, is moving quickly.  Wannabe engineers of all ages can watch the bridge go up from two viewing platforms, one at Memorial Park in Nyack and the other at Scenic Hudson RiverWalk Park on West Main Street in Tarrytown.  There are also two Outreach Centers for information about this fascinating project located at 142 Main Street in Nyack and 2 North Broadway in Tarrytown.   To learn more, go to www.NewNYBridge.com.

The creation of a Sing Sing Prison Museum on the banks of the Hudson in Ossining has long been talked about.  The concept is being revived among those who care about Sing Sing’s unique position in the history of the American penal system.  Others are interested in development of the museum because of its tremendous national and international potential as a significant tourist attraction for New York’s Hudson Valley. Find out how you can support this important project by donating

Lyndhurst is teaming up with ArchForKids, a local organization that provides exciting, interdisciplinary programming to teach children engineering principles with hands-on projects. Children and adults are invited to join in the creation of a 3D-village using recycled boxes and supplies. We’ll need houses, shops, schools, hospitals, taverns and more. Then put the structures together to make an entire Gothic Revival style village. Held outdoors in the carriage house courtyard, this activity gets kids to practice problem solving, basic city planning and architectural concepts, and above all, creativity. Younger children are invited to take part an imagination playground with big blocks set in front of Lyndhurst’s historic Rose Cottage playhouse. Available to the whole family are crafts, scavenger hunts, food, entertainment, and tours of the historic mansion which will feature LEGO® sculptures built by local kids. Everyone’s invited to join in the theme of building a village together through teamwork and ingenuity. BE AN EXHIBITOR! Already have a mini-engineer in the family? Kids are invited to submit their LEGO® sculptures for display within the Lyndhurst Mansion. Exhibitors and 2 family members get in to Design & Build weekend for free. This is an exciting opportunity for LEGO® loving kids to showcase their work among their peers. Get more info and register your kid to exhibit online at www.lyndhurst.org/lego by April 7.
