Mark Morganelli of Jazz Forum Arts and UniStar Federal Credit Union are sponsoring free jazz concerts on E Hartsdale Ave this summer--every Saturday from July 7 to August 25 from 12-2 PM --at DeSanti Plaza (across from Starbucks).
July 7 Carl Burnett Power Trio

July 21 The Ed Cherry Organ Project
July 28 Bob DeVos Trio
Aug 4 Carl Burnett Power Trio
Aug 11 Eddie Monteiro Trio
Aug 18 Kenny Lee All Stars
Aug 25 Harvie S Trio

It is my hope that this summer jazz concert series will help generate additional street traffic on E Hartsdale Ave, helping the merchants!

Starting on June 13th to August 22 there will be free concerts in Dobbs Ferry at waterfront park 6:30 to 8 PM

Let's see how busy Saturday will be in Hartsdale by the Railroad Station.

*Jazz Concert (taking up how many spaces?)
*Cybermobile (taking up 3 parking spaces)
*Farmer's Market (taking up how many parking spaces)
*Two trains running in each direction per hour (cars and taxis)
*New Crosswalk (visitors from afar)
*Parking Garage (access and exit)
*Pipeline Road (traffic to and from Edgemont)
*Scarsdale Country Club

I'm sure that the Police Department will dedicate uniformed personnel to see that no residents are killed or maimed with all this happening concurrently. Especially with all the shopping going on.

Yours truly suggested the Concert should be held on the other side of the tracks (northbound). But the Town is big on collecting potential liability lawsuits.
