According to a recent post on Facebook by Village of Mamaroneck Norman Rosenblum, there’s a new future for the Mamaroneck Playhouse. The Local Live spoke to him about the update. We will keep you posted as this story develops.


Upon opening their New York office in 2005, the not-for-profit Save the Sound, detected a large amount of fecal bacteria contaminating the streams that feed Long Island Sound as well as the shorelines of eleven Sound Shore communities including the Village of Mamaroneck. As a result, Save the Sound sued the communities for failure to maintain their pipes and sewage treatment infrastructure. They also sued Westchester County for not enforcing the Clean The Act. Local Live Co-Producer, Cat Galeano spoke with Tracy Brown, the Director of Save the Sound to learn more.  The Village of Mamaroneck and Port Chester have settled, while the Village of Larchmont and Town of Mamaroneck are still trying to find a solution.


A Pop-Art Pocket Park recently opened on Palmer Avenue. Local Live reporter, Victoria Piti spoke with Village of Larchmont Mayor, Lorraine Walsh about the newest addition to the Village.

Our Pets of the Week are Mindy, a four-year-old cat and Arlis, a nearly two-year-old dog. Mindy gets along with other cats, as long as they don’t bother her during her naps which is a favorite hobby of hers. Another hobby is cuddling. She would love to find a forever home to snuggle up in. Arlis is a rescue from Hurricane Harvey. He gets along with other dogs, despite not always wanting to share his toys. He is full of love and energy. For more information on either Mindy or Arlis, as well as other available pets, please go to


The Local Live is always looking for new interns and volunteers, so please send your emails to We love hearing from you.
