Maria Churchill

Maisonette is more than a destination for luxe home fragrance, handmade pillows, host gifts, and design objects from around the world. Instead, Maisonette is a lifestyle philosophy — born from the belief that a home should reflect its inhabitants and nourish their souls. For owner Maria Churchill, objects come alive when they resonate with personal meaning, have interesting stories or generate emotional connections. “The best style is your own; there are no rules,” Maria says. “Surround yourself with things you love.” Maria’s taste for graphic, modern elegance distinguishes her store’s artful sophistication. Refresh your interiors with her rigorously edited retail collection of gorgeous mirrors, vases, handcarved bowls, ginger jars, lighting, and area rugs. Come visit for ideas and inspiration. Find what speaks to you. Have fun creating a space that welcomes you home. Maisonette is your Westchester style resource. Hours: Tuesday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday to 6 p.m., Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

“The Center.” “The Diner.” Whatever you call it, the Hastings Center Restaurant has been at the center of village life for more than 50 years. Everyone goes there. Businesspeople who come for lunch and meetings. Moms who chat over morning coffee. Commuters who get a quick takeout breakfast on the way to the train.

Almost anything can be found on the menu. The best short-order breakfasts around — morning, noon and night. Sandwiches, salads, pasta, hearty chicken and meat meals, daily fish specials, Greek specialities and kids’ dishes. And to satisfy a sweet tooth, delicious breakfast pastries and muffins, and terrific desserts. For those in a hurry, the restaurant will package anything on the menu to go.

t’s been 17 years since Michelle Mosca took over Visual Difference hair salon. During that time, Michelle and her staff have been an important part of their clients’ lives. “We’ve been through so many milestones with them, sharing good times and bad. We feel like we are part of the family,” Michelle says. While at the salon, you will probably run into a neighbor, friend or co-worker and either catch up with the latest gossip or say a quick hello and then relax while your stylist, along with the rest of the staff, tend to your crowning glory (and parking meters!). Michelle attributes the salon’s success to the teamwork of her loyal staff and their continuing education, which keeps them current and up to date while also perfecting the classics. Their goal is to make their clients feel comfortable when they walk in and satisfied when they walk out. “Happy clients with happy hair are our best advertisement,” Michelle says. The salon’s clientele ranges from a girl getting her first bang trim to a visiting in-law. Some clients have come and gone — and many have come back again. You’re always welcome at Visual Difference. Hours: Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday to 6 p.m., Thursday to 8 p.m.

Friendly: Foodtown, a locally owned family business, strives to be the friendliest market, serving you, their neighbor, like one of the family. Fair: at Foodtown, you’ll find a huge variety of delicious foods so you can eat well without exhausting your paycheck or sacrificing the quality you deserve. Stepping into Foodtown, you can feel the energy and warmth of a team ready to bring a smile to your face and acknowledge you by name.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised at what you’ll discover. In keeping with a Neighbors Serving Neighbors ethos, your Foodtown family will be launching a Giving Back program to benefit local charities, schools, sports teams and places of worship.

Remember the old-fashioned butcher shops, where your parents and grandparents shopped for the family meals? Now, the presence of that shop among Dobbs Ferry’s food offerings has been revived and updated by Campbell Meats, the first whole-animal, nose-to-tail butchery in the Rivertowns. Every animal purchased for butchering has been pasture-fed, which accounts for the excellent taste of all the meats. In addition to steaks, chops, roasts, cutlets and organ meats, Campbell Meats offers sausages and patés, poultry, eggs, cheeses, veggies, pantry staples, and even crusty baguettes — all from local, sustainable farms in the Hudson Valley, where you can find some of the “best suppliers of meat, poultry, dairy and produce,” Matt Campbell says. Matt Campbell’s career in the culinary industry began at the French Culinary Institute in New York, and has ranged from some of Manhattan’s fine dining restaurants to New York’s best-known whole-animal butcheries. With this background, he appreciates quality, and will help you provide the best for your family’s table. Winter hours: Tuesday through Thursday, from noon to 6 p.m., Friday to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed Monday.

Betsy Helmuth, owner/designer

“Everyone should have a beautiful home.” That’s what Betsy Helmuth thought 11 years ago, when she founded Affordable Interior Design — the antidote to highpriced design solutions. “What about people like me?” she wondered. “How does the everyday working family create stylish rooms and welcoming environments?” Answer? Affordable Interior Design, a project roadmap that tells clients exactly what to get, where to put it, and where to buy it — maybe Ikea, maybe Pottery Barn — places that offer good design essentials at reasonable prices. She begins with a questionnaire that helps her team get to know you and your design goals. An in-home consultation solidifies the concept, which is followed by a comprehensive plan that includes a layout and a detailed shopping list — even wall paint and artwork. You make the purchases, follow the plan and — Viola! — a spectacular result, created by Betsy and her team, inspired and carried out by you. It’s easy, affordable, and stress-free. Residential and commercial clients welcome to call, or stop by the storefront in Dobbs Ferry. Hours: Storefront: Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Private parties and classes on weekends. Design services by appointment.

t’s late on a Sunday afternoon. Your son steps on a piece of broken glass and is bleeding profusely. It happened so fast and unexpectedly. What should you do? You could rush to the emergency room and wait your turn for medical attention. Or you could take advantage of the AppleMed Urgent Care facility nearby. Here, your son can get the skilled, personal attention he needs — immediately. Tests, X-rays, wound care, whatever will alleviate his pain and start the healing process is at hand. An urgent care facility, a welcome trend in medical attention for illnesses that aren’t life-threatening, is like an emergency room, but it serves the neighborhood community, not a whole county. Moreover, an urgent care facility is staffed by medical professionals specially trained in urgent care responsiveness. AppleMed Urgent Care serves Dobbs Ferry and the neighboring communities when immediate medical attention is needed — not the next morning when the doctor’s office opens, and not when a busy ER technician is finally free. When allergic reactions, accident injuries, falls and fractures, sprains, burns, insect bites, splinters and other emergencies that aren’t life-threatening occur, think AppleMed Urgent Care. For checkups, physicals, vaccinations, flu shots and other health maintenance procedures, think AppleMed Urgent Care. Remember, an apple a day, like AppleMed Urgent Care, means good health. AppleMed also has care centers in Tarrytown and Mount Vernon. AppleMed Urgent Care: A doctor-approved and trusted alternative for children and adults. Committed to the medical needs of the local community. Most insurance plans accepted. Hours: Open seven days a week.

Where do they find this stuff? Three guys who love comics, punk rock records and books, and horror — lots of horror — started collecting maybe 20 years ago, and now they’ve put it all together in one place — NYHC Comics. A hobby has grown into a business, and serious collectors looking for the rare and in-demand, as well as the just-curious looking for fun are having a blast checking out the inventory — comic book and movie characters, toys, masks, vinyl records, and statues. The stash gets bigger every week. “We love horror,” says Lee Farrelly, who with his partners, Dave DeCicco and Debo Da Pro, opened this amazing place only a few months ago — and already it’s being discovered. Are you into zombies? How about Freddy Krueger? Maybe Spider Man for the kids. Whatever pops in pop culture, NYHC has it. “Come on it, and let’s talk comics,” they say.

wo years ago, healthier eating got easier with the opening of Mix on Main Health Bar at 63 Main St. in Dobbs Ferry. Owner Vance Campbell, who is committed to healthful eating himself and enjoys running, worked in the restaurant business for six years before deciding to open his own health food restaurant. Mix on Main offers a variety of tasty options for nutrient-rich, good-for-you, dine-in or takeout lunches and dinner, and will also deliver. Diners can create their own salad with a green, leafy base and add toppings for a customized, fresh meal. Satisfying protein bowls come with a choice of quinoa or brown rice. Add chicken, steak, tofu, shrimp or grilled veggies, then a sauce: Asian sesame, barbecue, sweet chili, or wasabi for a savory finish. Juicing is part of many lifestyles these days, and Mix on Main offers juices and smoothies that are made from 100 percent organic fruit and vegetables — and absolutely no GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Customers can choose from a list of cleansing and energizing juices or build one from fresh ingredients. Salads, wraps, panini, soups and daily specials round out the menu with new items always being added. New this year is the addition of meal prep meals. Choose from our meal prep menu or create your own. “Dobbs Ferry is a foodie town,” Campbell says, and he is happy to offer another option on the thriving restaurant scene with Mix on Main’s healthy fare. If Campbell doesn’t have what you want for your dietary needs, he’ll get it for you. “I don’t believe in the word no,” he says. “If I don’t have it now, I’ll have it for you tomorrow.” Hours: Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

It’s the call every mother dreads: “Your child has head lice.” No worries. Anna Albano-Krosche, the Lice Lady of Westchester, can come to the rescue 365 days a year, “because lice is always an emergency.” Anna is Westchester’s original head lice removal expert. “I’ve been in business since 1998, and I’ve treated over 10,000 heads,” says Anna. She is the area’s only lice removal specialist with a freestanding salon. She also makes house calls. Anna frequently travels to schools and camps to do lice checks and to give presentations on head lice prevention. “I’ve been through this with my own children and myself, and I relate 100 percent to everybody who comes in,” she says. A client’s head is examined under a magnification light, then is given a 20minute, all-natural enzyme-based shampoo. Nits are combed from the hair, then the hair is rinsed, blown dry and rechecked. Clients leave the salon with a homework sheet, including instructions on how to “delouse your house.”

Carmen Muñiz Cooper, psychotherapist

Sometimes, life treats people unkindly. Many can overcome these challenges, but others need guidance. This is where the psychotherapeutic skills of Carmen Muñiz Cooper, L.M.S.W. (Licensed Master Social Worker) have proven so valuable. For 25 years, she has been helping individuals, families and special needs children address the difficult situations that diminish well-being. In her practice, Carmen Muniz Cooper addresses marriage problems, family discord, the protections and rights of the disabled, addictive behavior, mental health situations, and other struggles. Her clients respond to the caring and compassionate way she treats these issues, just as she did as the first director of New York City’s Cabrini Immigrant Services.

More than 24 years ago, Diane Manos-Medici, CPE (Certified Professional Electrologist), established Diane’s Electrolysis Suite to help women, men and teens rid their bodies of unwanted hair. In 1994, Karen Rambarrat, CPE, RN, joined the practice. Diane and Karen understand the emotional burden and embarrassment of undesirable hair, which can be hereditary or caused by a medical condition, hormonal changes or hirsutism. With the benefit of electrolysis — the only hair removal method that is permanent and recognized by the medical field — clients regain confidence knowing that, once again, they can look their best. Diane and Karen realized that helping people struggling to cope with excessive hair was a profession they wanted to pursue. Both are board-certified and attend meetings and conferences to earn continuing education units (CEUs). They bring the latest techniques to the practice, where they offer custom treatments to meet individual needs. As always, client comfort and safety are uppermost, and strict infectious disease control guidelines are followed, including disposable probes, sterilized equipment, rubber gloves and private treatment rooms.

egends Realty Group is an independent affiliate of William Raveis Real Estate. The company was founded by five top-producing agents, Elvira Aloia, Mary Case Friedner, Marcene Hedayati, Phyllis Lerner and Karen Stroub, who bring a combined total of more than 100 years of experience with them. Their goal, from the start, has been to create a unique team-like atmosphere. They attribute their success to adhering to their mission of setting higher standards and offering unsurpassed service. With their first office in Sleepy Hollow and second in Tarrytown, followed by their affiliation in January 2011 with William Raveis Real Estate — the No. 1 independently owned firm in the Northeast — Legends became the first to test the franchise model in New York. “We have the best of both worlds. We have been able to continue nurturing our current business practices and methods that have distinguished us from the rest and, at the same time, enjoy the many tools and systems that you can only find in a larger company. Not to mention their exceptional education program and second to none referral network. Most importantly, we are fortunate to have found a company that

shares our philosophy and culture,” says principal owner/broker Marcene Hedayati. Legends continued their extraordinary expansion with the opening of offices in Briarcliff Manor in 2011, Irvington in 2012 and Hastings-on-Hudson in 2014. The company just recently announced a merger with Hudson Homes of Tarrytown, resolutely establishing William Raveis Legends Realty Group as a worthy market leader in the Rivertowns. This remarkable growth has brought the number of Legends agents to more than 85 to date and has afforded them the position of being ranked among the top 10 real estate companies, based on sales volume, in Westchester County since 2014.* They are actively involved in the community and, although the Legends offices call the Rivertowns their home, all the agents are equally well-versed in all areas of Westchester County. The agents can provide invaluable knowledge to sellers and buyers about their options in today’s challenging market. They pride themselves on the quality, experience and personal touch they offer their clients. Hours: Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Irvington brokerage is one of 24 company brokerages, which collectively have more than 1,000 sales associates who, on a local level, have a deep knowledge of the marketplace and a proven track

record of successfully handling the sale of fine properties in all price categories. At the same time, on a global scale, due to our affiliation with the Sotheby’s International Realty network, we offer broader exposure than any other firm for our listings — working with buyers and sellers from well beyond our local markets. Our Irvington brokerage consists of 16 agents, all of whom bring great resources, knowledge and expertise of the local area. The Sotheby’s brand dates back to 1744, when the venerable auction house was founded and quickly earned the worldwide reputation it still enjoys today as the renowned marketer of some of the world’s most valuable possessions. Recognizing the need to offer its clients a complete package of estate services and marketing, Sotheby’s auction house formed Sotheby’s International Realty in 1976. Today, the Sotheby’s International Realty network has evolved into the most prestigious global real estate brand, comprising a network of the most respected real estate firms in the most desirable destinations all over the world. Our brand’s white glove referral program enables network members to connect qualified buyers and sellers globally. Orchestrated by a dedicated team of professionals, thousands of these connections are made every month — from broker-to-broker to auction house-to-broker. Only one real estate brand has it all. At Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, the advantages we bring are ours alone.

T

he Rivertowns are the quiet gems of Westchester County. Nestled along the scenic Hudson River, the villages of Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Hastings, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow offer spectacular views of the river and its palisades — and desirable properties at every turn. Representing these properties is Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty agent Dalia Valdes. Dalia grew up in the Rivertowns, raised her family there, and understands the pulse of the area, from its intriguing history to its nationally ranked schools. She knows where to shop and where to go for a special occasion; she delights in its picturesque charm and easy-going lifestyle, its oasis of calm. An established presence in the Rye office of one

of Westchester’s finest real estate firms, Dalia is well-positioned to serve buyers and sellers alike. Recently, the client of a colleague in Rye was searching for a water property close to a private school in Riverdale. Dalia offered to introduce this Rye home shopper to the Rivertowns and properties that would meet the criteria for amazing water views within a short commute of the school. The resulting sale is just one example of how Dalia successfully bridges the gap between the Sound Shore villages and the equally desirable Rivertowns. Leveraging opportunities like this one has helped make her a Rivertowns leader at Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, and 2016 her best year. Hours: Call for an appointment.

t Eye Q Optometrist, the examination, treatment, and frame selection process become welcome and comfortable experiences in the skilled hands of Dr. Abraham Zlatin and his professional staff. The bright, modern décor of the newly designed facility in the Golden Horseshoe Shopping Center complements the confidence you can place in the doctors entrusted with the care of your sight. Among the advanced procedures offered by the practice is orthokeratology, a nonsurgical technique that temporarily reshapes the contour of the cornea while you sleep, eliminating the need for daytime eyewear. This treatment, an alternative to Lasik, is safe and proven effective in correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Children get special attention at Eye Q, with an extensive selection of eyeglasses and sunglasses. Their parents are responding to the myopia control program that, according to recent studies, may slow the progression of nearsightedness in children. Dr. Zlatin is a fellow in the International Orthokeratology Academy, and the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control. Office manager Stacy Zlatin has chosen an array of eyeglass and sunglass frames from designers and manufacturers around the world, including Mykita, Lindberg, Dita, Lafont, Céline, Garrett Leight and others offering designs to enhance your facial features. On hand to help you select the most flattering frames are Eye Q’s fashion stylists, whose knowledge of the inventory can help narrow down the designs most complimentary to you.

Walking into Country Willow is nothing short of a one-of-a-kind experience. The interior is a magnificent post-and-beam construction with hand-planed wood floors, antique barn wood on the walls, soaring ceilings and filled with beautiful sofas, sectionals, leather seating, solid wood tables, desks, bedrooms and so much more. They are also the area’s largest resource for home décor including lighting, rugs, window treatments and accessories … and it’s all right here in Bedford Hills. From country to transitional and contemporary, they carry furniture styles for every homeowner. Their many collections of home furnishings and décor accommodate a wide range of price points from starter families to the more upscale homeowner. There are always lots of choices for everyone.

Country Willow has been voted Best Furniture and Accessory Store 10 years in a row by Westchester magazine and recognized by Houzz for design and service. The owners, Cori and Roy Estrow, attribute their incredible success to their employees — some of whom have been with them since the early days. “We have been blessed with some of the most amazing, dedicated and caring employees that you can ever ask for,” says Cori Estrow. “Last year we converted our company to an ESOP company, also known as an employee-owned company. They all work very hard and deserve to share in our success.” Country Willow is also a leading resource for sustainable home furnishings, specializing in American-made, which is rare in this age of imports. They also specialize in solid-wood custom furniture, so if you need a trestle dining table made of reclaimed wood in a specific size or finish, or a large 14-foot library or corner home office, Country Willow can get it done and for less than you think. They also offer complimentary in-home design services by talented designers and have no commissioned salespeople, making for a very friendly environment. And don’t forget to stop by and visit Nyla — a golden retriever who is always there to welcome and entertain everyone. Hours: Open seven days a week.

inner with a loved one in the soft glow of candlelight is the essence of romance. Custom Candle Co. offers the allure of candlelight, and also imparts the science behind it — the differences among paraffin and soy wax; how the length of the wick alters the luminous intensity of the light; how the mood changes according to the translucence and color of the container. Custom Candle Co., owned by Marcie Manfredonia and her son, Anthony Desideri, stocks a huge variety of candles produced by the world’s finest candlemakers, including Lafco, Archipelago, Believe, Marianne Guedin Paris and other brands carried in luxury stores like Nordstrom and Saks. The idea for designer candles came from Anthony, who began cutting down high-end liquor bottles and repurposing them into another life, including candles, ashtrays, and vases, among other items. How about a candle in the bottom half of an Absolut bottle? Choose your wax color, wick, scent and container for a custom candle sure to please a gift recipient. Other shop offerings include soaps, bath salts, and reed diffusers. For the holidays, Marcie is creating gift baskets of candles, soaps and all-natural bath salts, plus special order arrangements by request. Stop by and create a mood with candlelight. Hours: Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday during the holidays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Trust and Integrity in the Rivertowns Number One Realtor

oulihan Lawrence was founded in 1888 with a commitment to trust and integrity, which has been our hallmark for more than 100 years. Today, the company is the No. 1 leader in market share and remains the area’s largest independently owned Realtor with 30 offices and 1,200-plus agents serving Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties and our newest location in Greenwich, Connecticut. We pride ourselves in having the resources and network that a national company would have — our own inhouse marketing division, an award-winning relocation department, as well as our affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Mayfair International Realty, and Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate. We still, however, have been able to retain the personal touch of

the local hometown Realtor, because not only are our offices staffed by residents of the towns they serve, but each office is supported by a Westchester headquarters that can be immediately responsive to our local changing market. The Irvington office, combined with the Ardsley office — staffed with committed professionals — continues to be the dominant market-share leader in total sales volume in Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings, Irvington, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. Put these two amazing groups together and you have an invincible and matchless team of nearly 50 agents. We have all set the standards for excellence in customer service and will gladly accept the challenge to serve our neighbors during this ever-changing time. Please feel free to call upon any one of us and we will be vigilant in attending to your every need.
