Got a Sec?

At Katonah Connect, we have a very strict "you must embarrass your kids" policy. We've found one of the easiest ways to do this is with something we like to call "roll-up music." Roll-up music is the music you blast with your windows down as you drive into a crowded place. School drop-off, baseball practice, King Kone...wherever our kids make ...

Tapping into the Land– An Essay

Writing by Leslie Dock Artwork by Greg Muenzen For this Connecting with the Land, we take a slight detour from the typical advice-driven article to provide you with a glimpse into how our expert gardener first became enthralled with growing food. Join her inspiring journey from next-door-neighbor-who-eats-all-the-raspberries to gardener-for-hire-who-is-truly-tapped-in-to-what-our-earth-needs. I love farmers, gardeners, growers – those who feel called to ...
Antioch Church

Antioch Church

In approximately 1887, Bedford’s African American community, who routinely congregated for services in their homes, registered as a religious corporation in the State of New York. Led by Reverend F. C. McGee, neighbors worked together over the next several years to build a place of worship. By 1894, the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church completed construction in Bedford Centre. Now, Antioch ...

Keep it Growing

Keep it Growing

Writing by Leslie Dock Artwork by Zoe Stevensy Tips for a consistent harvest Afew months ago, my brother asked me what farmers do during the winter. My immediate response was, “We rest.” Compared to the absurd amount of activity farmers engage in during the other nine months of the year, this statement is largely accurate. When not resting, a farmer ...

All-American

In 2015, at the Burlington, VT, farmer’s market, I was introduced to the best vodka I ever tasted. It was called Literary Dog, and it was created and produced by David Howe at his farm, which later became known as Elm Brook Farm. Their vodka was derived from maple syrup and distilled 23 times. I was so impressed by their ...

1683 Taproom

It happens at least once a month – we’re having a conversation with someone and, regardless of the original topic, the subject turns to the lack of a good bar in the area. “I really wish there was a place where we could just hang out at night,” they’ll say. “Not a restaurant with a bar, but an actual bar ...

How to use social media in a healthy way By Susan Trumpbour Social media—the double-edged sword of our digital age. It’s a modern-day wonderland that grants us access to a world of communication, self-expression and social connection, yet it leaves us vulnerable to a Pandora’s box of cyberbullying, curated content and constant comparison to others. It’s a bittersweet relationship that ...
Understanding the Key to Longevity

Understanding the Key to Longevity

by Ava Fleisher It’s easy to use the phrase “we’ll all die someday” as an excuse to neglect your health. But the truth is, it’s really not that easy. Sometimes, if you focus on the right things in the right places, the average American lifespan of 77 years can be more lively and even lengthened. Ask yourself: “Wouldn’t I rather ...
Empowered Optimism

Empowered Optimism

Empowered Optimism – The only kind that really works We hear a lot about the importance of keeping a positive attitude, a.k.a. being optimistic. Like gratitude, it’s an overused term that we’re told we must do if we’re going to “live our best life” and “shed the negative beliefs holding us back.” The question is, how? With numerous not-so-positive things ...

Chili and Spice

Chili and Spice

Spicy. I wanted spicy. After a few months in Katonah, I still hadn’t found the hot singles scene that I was looking for. Sure, I tried the sewer ribbon-cutting in December – that was a big dump. I’ve sauntered the aisles of DeCiccos in a striking pair of Louboutins, but I always leave with dinner for one. I even bought ...
A Night with Robin & Friends at The Bedford Playhouse

A Night with Robin & Friends at The Bedford Playhouse

I was ready to take the world by storm. I was one semester away from earning my Global Liberal Studies degree from NYU when life came to a halt. I’d learned so much about our incredible, interconnected world, and just when I was ready to make a name for myself on this beautiful planet, everything stopped.  There was no way ...
Katonah Love: The New Sewer

Katonah Love: The New Sewer

When one thinks of Katonah, the word ‘spicy’ invariably comes to mind. It’s the ultimate singles scene. The perfect hotspot for romance, dating, and whatever hookups someone might want. Even the word “Katonah” translates roughly to “nights of passion.” (I think?) So, when I told my city friends that I was moving to this sizzling Northern Westchester neighborhood, they all ...
