[ARCHIVED] 325th Anniversary Celebration Concludes with ‘Ring in the New Year’ at New Roc City

The City of New Rochelle’s 325th Anniversary Celebration concludes next week with New Roc City’s fourth annual “Ring in the New Year” festivities, Tuesday, December 31. This family-friendly event co-sponsored by the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) and New Roc City begins at 10:30 am and features face painting, arts and crafts, martial arts and sports demonstrations, snacks, clowns, magicians, games and more. At noon, 325th Anniversary Chair Marianne Sussman and committee members will join radio personality Jimmy Fink of 107.1 The Peak to ring in 2014 in true Times Square fashion with a thrilling release of thousands of festive, brightly-colored balloons.

Two mementos of the anniversary year will be available at the event for a small donation: the beautiful full-color Commemorative Journal for $15 and a poster by internationally-acclaimed artist Charles Fazzino for $10.

To round out the celebration’s finale, anniversary highlights are being shown on New Rochelle Cable Television station NRTV until January 1 on Cable Channel 75 and Verizon 28. Access the schedule on the City website or the view the channel stream live at

For more information on the 325th Anniversary visit or Facebook New Rochelle 325.

About the Journal and poster: The 325th Anniversary Journal, edited by City Historian Barbara Davis and Theresa Kump Leghorn and designed by Jesse Sanchez, includes complete photos and text of the popular “Timeline Exhibit” as well as ten pages of photographs from special events: the Gala dinner dance, Kite Day, tennis tournament, Restaurant Week, the first annual Street Fair, Fatt Calfe Ceremony, and more! Similar commemorative journals from the city’s 225th, 250th and 300th anniversary years have become treasured keepsakes, and this beautifully printed booklet is sure to join them as a sought-after collectible. The poster, designed by artist Charles Fazzino, highlights every corner of the City through venues new and old, iconic and sentimental. Copies of the Commemorative Journal are also available at the Curtain Shop (541 Main Street), Recologie (14 Lawton Street), the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall (515 North Avenue), and the New Rochelle Public Library’s Community Relations Office (1 Library Plaza) and posters at the City Clerk’s Office.
