New City Buildings being Demolished

Today I was driving down Main St. in New City and noticed fencing around a building on S. Main that used to be a nail salon. And there were men taking the roof apart. I come to find out that the building is going to be demolished, and that this will now serve as a gateway to the park- Dutch Gardens. Most people in New City have no idea what Dutch Gardens is, but I grew up here, and as a kid, I helped restore it many, many years ago. The park was built from 1934 to 1936, and it was named after the early Dutch settlers. It includes a gazebo, brick tea house with a fireplace, bandstand, arbor, brick-lined paths and serpentine brick fencing which surrounds a flower garden. This gateway will also create more parking spaces, which are greatly needed. I am interested in seeing how this new gateway will look, and if it will help the residence of New City and Rockland County know about this little treasure we have. I know several years back, many wedding parites had their pictures done here, it was once a beautiful spot. I myself haven't seen the park in years, so I look forward to seeing the new gateway and the park I remember as a kid.
