News and Upcoming Events

Plaza Elections Postponed
to Tuesday, April 28th, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.


In an effort to keep New Yorkers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo issued an executive order delaying village elections statewide until the April 28 primary election.

"Our top priority has been keeping New Yorkers safe and stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus," Governor Cuomo said. "Public health officials have been clear that reducing density is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread, and delaying village elections will help ensure poll workers and voters are not potentially exposed to the virus and at the same time maintain integrity in our election system."

The Awards Reading Day event is free and open to the public. Time permitting, Great Neckers will have the opportunity to read their own poetry as part of an open mic portion at the end of the event. Refreshments of bagels, pastries, fruit, and coffee /tea will be served.

The Plaza would like to thank all those poets who entered the 10th Annual Poetry Contest, as well as Dan Brown, contest judge, and Carolyn Raphael, the Village's poetry coordinator, for their assistance in this wonderful program and making it all possible.
