But the food should not be eaten “pending health-related inquiries.”

H Mart to Open on Central Avenue

 

 

After we posted the story on Kam Sen, Westchester’s  largest Asian market, reader Lisa Solomon wrote in to say she believes H Mart, a new market opening on Central Avenue in Hartsdale, will be even bigger. It is a national chain. H Mart will be near The Christmas Tree Shop and TJ Maxx. It used to be a Pathmark supermarket. It opens 3/23.

Metro-North Platform Smoking Ban Starts Wednesday

 

Cold turkey commute. Don’t even think about lighting up while waiting for your Metro-North train. Doing so could get you kicked off the platform, up to $50 in fines or a trip to jail. The MTA’s new ban on outdoor smoking starts today, following a months-long grace period the agency gave smokers to get used to the idea. The ban, which had a soft launch in November, prohibits smoking on Metro-North and Long Island Railroad outdoor platforms, as well as ticketing and boarding areas.

Hartsdale Cemetery is Human-Friendly Again

“I don’t want to be buried…in a pet cemetery,” sang the Ramones. But some people do. Back in June we told you about the woman who wanted to be buried in the Hartsdale Pet Cemetery with her loved ones: her dog and her four cats. The State’s Cemetery Board said no. Now, things have changed.

Isn’t that why they call it a Pet Cemetery?

The Hartsdale Cemetery on Central Avenue appears to be a bit more than it says it is. The New York Division of Cemeteries has now ordered it to stop burying the ashes of pet owners alongside their pets.
