Cross River

The Cross River is a short river in southern New York State that rises near Cross River in the township of Lewisboro. After its rising point, it makes a loop, heading SE, then SW, then NW, and finally west. It flows a few miles in that direction until it ends up in the Cross River Reservoir, which supplies New York City with drinking water. It flows out of the spillway at the end of the reservoir, and continues further until it joins the Croton River in Katonah.

The short stretch of river that begins at the spillway outlet and continues on to the river’s entry into the Muscoot Reservoir is an outstanding early spring trout fishery.

In October 2011, lawyer Samuel Friedlander shot both of his children in their beds and bludgeoned his wife Amy, who was in the process of divorcing him, to death. Then he went down into his basement and shot himself. This murder-suicide occurred in the small hamlet of Cross River.

Briarcliff Manor

Briarcliff Manor /ˈbraɪərklɪf/ is a suburban village in Westchester County, New York, around 30 miles (50 km) north of New York City. It is on 5.9 square miles (15 km2) of land on the east bank of the Hudson River, geographically shared by the towns of Mount Pleasant and Ossining. Briarcliff Manor includes the communities of Scarborough and Chilmark, and is served by the Scarborough station of the Metro-North Railroad’s Hudson Line. A section of the village, including buildings and homes covering 376 acres (152 ha), is part of the Scarborough Historic District and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The village motto is “A Village between Two Rivers”, reflecting Briarcliff Manor’s location between the Hudson and Pocantico Rivers. Although the Pocantico is the primary boundary between Mount Pleasant and Ossining, since its incorporation the village has spread into Mount Pleasant.

In the precolonial era, the village’s area was inhabited by a band of the Wappinger tribes of Native Americans. In the early 19th century, the area was known as Whitson’s Corners. Walter William Law moved to the area and purchased lands during the 1890s. Law developed the village, establishing schools, churches, parks, and the Briarcliff Lodge. Briarcliff Manor was incorporated as a village in 1902, and celebrated its centennial on November 21, 2002. The village has grown from 331 people when established to 7,867 in the 2010 census.

Briarcliff Manor was historically known for its wealthy estate-owning families, including the Vanderbilts, Astors, and Rockefellers. It still remains primarily residential and its population is still considered affluent by U.S. standards. It has about 180 acres (70 ha) of recreational facilities and parks, all accessible to the public. The village has seven Christian churches for various denominations and two synagogues. The oldest church is Saint Mary’s Episcopal Church, built in 1851. Briarcliff Manor has an elected local government, with departments including police, fire, recreation, and public works. It has a low crime rate: a 2012 study found it had the second-lowest in the state. In the New York State Legislature it is split between the New York State Assembly’s 95th and 92nd districts, and the New York Senate’s 38th and 40th districts. In Congress the village is in New York’s 17th District.
