Residents of the Pine Brook neighborhood in Larchmont, near Pine Brook playground and around Coolidge Street, are unhappy about a decision by the Village to remove a well traveled outdoor staircase, used as a shortcut to town.
A sign indicates the stairs will go on March 4.
“One of the most wonderful things about Larchmont is its “walkability,” writes resident Mary Beth Kilbride. “The myriad stairs throughout the village contributes to this feature. I am outraged that the village would propose to cut off an entire neighborhood and deny residents access to the park, town and train station.”
” If it is allowed, Kilbride adds, “then similar scenarios could play out further threatening the residents’ collective experience of living in Larchmont. ”
We have reached out to Village officials for comment.
