Do You Remember

The Coster Estate was put together in 1771 for Daniel J. Coster and his wife, Julia DeLancey Coster.  It was originally comprised of about five acres and it’s doubtful that they occupied the land right away as there is no record of the mansion being there until long after the American Revolution.  The land was, in fact, a rather dangerous place to live.  The Hessians, fighting with the English, had an encampment there from October 12 to October 18, 1776 during the Battle of Westchester Creek.  The area was known as the Neutral Ground and was often raided by both sides seeking cattle or crops to feed their armies.  Read more…

Liberty Democratic Association

If we use the boundary sticks of 2006, when the Ben Franklin Club, a 48-year-old political club brought in over 4000 signatures for their respective candidates and the Committee of 100 Democrats, a 34-year-old born again political club brought in 200 signatures (in over three Assembly districts), our first time gathering of 1000 signatures was quite surprising. District leader Kenny Agusto ran out of the Bronx Board of Elections and declared “The 80th received 2473 signatures.” Thank you Liberty Democratic Association (LDA) members for making our first time collecting petitions a successful one and more importantly, thank you 80th Assembly District neighbors.
