Release Date: August 05, 2015

When the A & P in Greenburgh closes down one employee won’t have to worry. Anthony Samarneh, one of the managers at the A & P in Greenburgh will take home $1.5 million dollars – having won the NY lottery.  We wish the other employees of the A & P supermarkets in Greenburgh similar luck!  Acme Markets will be taking over the supermarket in Greenburgh later this year.
August 1781 was the year that  General George Washington’s army—camped in Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry—started a march along what is now Ashford Avenue. General Washington’s army  continued to what is now Broadway, crossed the Hudson River....and marched to Virginia where they defeated the British army under Cornwalis.
