FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PREPAYMENT OF CITY TAXES
Rye, NY, December 15, 2017– The City of Rye will be accepting prepayment of City Taxes. Marcus Serrano, City Manager of the City of Rye announced today that the City has been receiving a number of requests for prepayment of City taxes. Mr. Serrano stated even though the City is not obligated to collect the prepayment of City taxes, the City is always trying to serve its taxpayers and he is pleased to be able to accommodate these requests from the residents. Mr. Serrano has been working with the Finance Department, IT Department and the software vendors to implement the necessary changes to allow for the prepayment of taxes. Mr. Serrano stated that the requests are based on the proposed tax law changes. Mr. Serrano wanted to make it very clear that even though the City taxes may be prepaid, the question of deductibility is a question that must be answered by a tax preparer. Therefore Mr. Serrano stated that “the City of Rye makes no claim, nor bears any responsibility for the deductibility of the pre-payment of property taxes. You should consult your tax professional for further information”. Mr. Serrano also stated that the City can only collect the prepayment of City taxes and not School or County taxes. Mr. Serrano stated that this process is dependent on the City Council adopting the budget before December 31st. If the City Council adopts the budget on December 20th the City’s website will be updated to allow for the prepayment of taxes starting on December 22nd.
Individuals should go to the City website if they wish to prepay. The City’s website will have a link that will take you to a site that will provide you with instructions on how to prepay and the amount of the City tax.
ANNOUNCING PANTONE 18-3838 ULTRA VIOLET, PANTONE® COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018.
At first glance I wasn’t smitten, but then these mages were such eye candy for me, giving me a new outlook on the use of color and providing so much inspiration. Its amazing how a color suggestion can trickle into every aspect of our lives, fashion, art, music, meditation, jewelry, the list goes on. Cant wait to see all the ways we can express ourselves through ULTRA VIOLET
from the Pantone website, a little meaning to the color of the year
A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.
Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.
Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.
Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman just bought this old Colonial-style house in Westport, Connecticut. Known as CompoBello, the “mini estate” was built in the 1920s at the end of a long, gated, cobblestone drive. Take a look!

At first I thought there was a wreath on the door, but a close-up shows it’s actually a round window:
Kinda cool, right? You don’t see doors like that very often.

There are two kitchens. This is the main one, open to the great room:
The space features an AGA range and a brick fireplace.
The second floor has two wings. Love this built-in storage in the hall:

The master suite has a walk-out to a large redwood deck that’s crying out for a table and comfy chairs:
A sitting room:
A second, smaller kitchen leads to the pool:
The cozy banquette is pretty sweet:
I’ll be hanging out in this kitchen and you can have the bigger one. 😉
A barn-style pool house dates to the 1920s:
It has 1,500 square feet with wide plank oak floorboards, built-in book shelves, and a loft space:
Don’t get me wrong, I love Fall, the crisp air, the pumpkin spiced everything, fires, apples, BUT I am definitely looking for an activity that doesn’t involve an overcrowded pumpkin patch and a warm beer. Here are some ideas to keep you and your family busy this October
