Godfrey Cheshire, New York Press "Avoid CAUGHT at your own peril…A TENSELY HYPNOTIC TALE of sexual obsession with breathless exotic results…See it and I'm betting you'll be as hooked as I am." Rex Reed, New York Observer "A MASTERLY FILM that keeps generating tension and psychological force, placing the seamy sexual desperation of film noir right alongside the rigorous proprieties of classical tragedy." Margo Jefferson, New York Times "ELEGANT AND CONCISE…With its attention to character and careful exposition that keeps the story moving at a clip, CAUGHT has the intimate, fateful feel of all the best noir of the 1940's." Richard Rayner, Harper's Bazaar The Metrograph is located in the heart of what was a major hub for early-twentieth-century movie-going: the city's historic Lower East Side Closest subway stops: F train to East Broadway B and D trains to Grand Street

550 North Avenue, New Rochelle (Parking lot behind City Hall)

Saturday, August 13 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

Westchester County Mobile Shredder

Out of an abundance of caution and in light of COVID-19 we have implemented new  safety guidelines  for our public shredder events in order to ensure the health and safety of residents and staff.Residents can bring up to 4 file-size (10”x12”x15”) boxes of confidential papers per household to New Rochelle from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for shredding.  Please remove all large binder clips and covers.  Papers from businesses institutions or commercial enterprises are not acceptable and will be rejected as will any junk mail or newspapers.First come first served Service at the events works on a first-come-first-served basis as the Mobile Shredder unit can reach its maximum capacity before closing time.  In extreme weather events may be cancelled or terminated early.  Important information  It is important to be aware of what you place the paper to be shredded no matches lighters or anything combustible. Staff at the events will be checking the material prior to being shredded.  Please call the county's Recycling Helpline at (914) 813-5425 to check on a cancellation or early closure.Kinds of documents to shred Remember it's best to shred documents you're no longer using that contain personal identifying information such as name address phone number credit card number or social security number. Such documents should be shredded before they are thrown out for recycling. Some examples are: - expired credit card statements and receipts - old tax returns or any other personal documents containing you name address or other identifying information. - pre-approved credit card applications - licensesAs this service is gaining in popularity residents should be prepared to wait as lines are sometimes long. However the wait doesn't have to be that long. Come prepared. This means you've removed all metal clips fasteners binders folders and hard covers and placed the papers loosely in a box. Hard covers – cardboard or plastic covers on items such as ledger books marble composition books and hard-cover books – cannot be shredded and will be turned away. Residents must rip pages out from hard cover books for shredding and throw the covers in their regular household trash. Up to four boxes of papers are allowed for shredding.For more information about identity theft call the Dept. of Consumer Protection (914) 995-2155. For questions about recycling call (914) 813-5425 the Recycling Helpline.For more information about the mobile shredder visit the  Westchester County Department of Environmental Protection Mobile Shredder page.

A History of U.S. – Latin American Relations through Housing and Urban Planning with Leandro Benmergui
Aug 16
Purchase College Community Events
ZOOM

Tuesday, August 16 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Purchase College Community Events

As Latin America was undergoing a process of industrialization, development, and modernization starting in the 1950s, urban centers grew exponentially due to rural-urban migration. So did urban informality and poverty. The urban poor became the object of research and policymaking in a political and social context framed by anxieties about the spread of Communism, particularly after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959. Within the Cold War context, the United States also aspired to influence social transformation in the hemisphere. Housing, homeownership, community development programs, and technical and financial assistance were part of that agenda, crystallized in President John F. Kennedy's announcement of the Alliance for Progress in March 1961. This talk will present original research on the history of urban development and housing for Latin America as part of a cold war history in the hemisphere. Leandro Benmergui is Associate Professor of History and the Chair of Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies. He has researched and published about the transnational history of housing in the Americas in the second postwar context.

Westchester County Mobile Shredder
Fox Senior Center - 198 Carpenter Avenue, Mount Kisco

Monday, August 22 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

Westchester County Mobile Shredder

Out of an abundance of caution and in light of COVID-19 we have implemented new  safety guidelines  for our public shredder events in order to ensure the health and safety of residents and staff.Residents can bring up to 4 file-size (10”x12”x15”) boxes of confidential papers per household to Mount Kisco from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for shredding.  Please remove all large binder clips and covers.  Papers from businesses institutions or commercial enterprises are not acceptable and will be rejected as will any junk mail or newspapers.First come first served Service at the events works on a first-come-first-served basis as the Mobile Shredder unit can reach its maximum capacity before closing time.  In extreme weather events may be cancelled or terminated early.  Important information  It is important to be aware of what you place the paper to be shredded no matches lighters or anything combustible. Staff at the events will be checking the material prior to being shredded.  Please call the county's Recycling Helpline at (914) 813-5425 to check on a cancellation or early closure.Kinds of documents to shred Remember it's best to shred documents you're no longer using that contain personal identifying information such as name address phone number credit card number or social security number. Such documents should be shredded before they are thrown out for recycling. Some examples are: - expired credit card statements and receipts - old tax returns or any other personal documents containing you name address or other identifying information. - pre-approved credit card applications - licensesAs this service is gaining in popularity residents should be prepared to wait as lines are sometimes long. However the wait doesn't have to be that long. Come prepared. This means you've removed all metal clips fasteners binders folders and hard covers and placed the papers loosely in a box. Hard covers – cardboard or plastic covers on items such as ledger books marble composition books and hard-cover books – cannot be shredded and will be turned away. Residents must rip pages out from hard cover books for shredding and throw the covers in their regular household trash. Up to four boxes of papers are allowed for shredding.For more information about identity theft call the Dept. of Consumer Protection (914) 995-2155. For questions about recycling call (914) 813-5425 the Recycling Helpline.For more information about the mobile shredder visit the  Westchester County Department of Environmental Protection Mobile Shredder page.
