New BID Downtown Restaurant and Business Support Program Announced
The BID announced its new Downtown Restaurant and Business Support Program, a unique partnership with Community Capital Resources, NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority), and Con Edison. Through this coordinated effort, each participating downtown restaurant and store will receive comprehensive energy audits and incentives for energy improvements helping them lower their operating costs by implementing identified conservation measures.
In addition, commercial loans of up to $25,000 will be made available to eligible businesses to assist with energy and other physical improvements, as well as for operating expenses and marketing initiatives to enable owners to grow their business. Technical assistance will also be made available. Downtown businesses can call Ralph DiBart at 914-960-1460 to participate. More

RESTAURANT REVIEW Bella Bella Italian Restaurant
Diane Hyden comes from a large family of New Rochelleans...now three generations. She raised two sons here and is married to Ivar Hyden, who owns Backstreet Galley in downtown New Rochelle. Diane is media director for national TV broadcast for a large Manhattan agency and commutes daily from downtown’s Intermodal Center to Midtown Manhattan. She has enjoyed playing tennis with a group of woman friends for the past ten years at the New Rochelle Racquet Club and the "tennis ladies" have always celebrated the end of another season with a special dinner out on the town … this year they went to Bella Bella Italian Restaurant.
Our tennis group, all active residents of New Rochelle get together to play tennis weekly. Great exercise. Great fun. And really great camaraderie. At the end of each season we celebrate and reward ourselves with a “girl’s night out dinner”. More
