I've moved Running from the article to the discussion page, as it does not provide any info other than secondary source URLs. See Project:External links and Project:Attraction listings "A link is not a substitute for actual information. Our goals include creating pages useful as printed guides. So, we need to include information that's at the other end of a link, even if it may seem redundant for on-line use." (WT-en) SHC 19:34, 2 May 2006 (EDT)

How many villages and towns are we going to list?[edit]

The standard on this guide is no more than 9. To get a start on pruning the list, I'm moving red links and their descriptions here:

  • Ardsley - this village is part of the town of Greenburg, not be confused with the nearby hamlet of Ardsley-on-Hudson, which is part of the village of Irvington
  • Buchanan - home of the Indian Point nuclear power facility
  • Greenburgh - historic sites in this town include the Romer-Van Tassel House (town hall in 1793), the Church of St. Joseph of Arimathea, the Odell House, and the Spanish American War Monument to the 71st Infantry Regiment.
  • New Castle this town includes the hamlet of Millwood. The Williams-DuBois House and Isaac Young House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places
  • North Salem - mostly rural; rolling hills, horse farms, and apple orchards. The fictitious headquarters of the X-Men superhero team is located in Salem Center.
  • Town of Rye - not the city of Rye, the town of Rye includes Port Chester, Rye Brook and part of Mamaroneck.

Another red link and description:
  • Mount Pleasant township containing Eastview, Hawthorne, Pleasantville, Pocantico Hills, Sleepy Hollow, Thornwood, Valhalla, and part of Briarcliff Manor.
We should keep all the descriptions - they may be useful. But we need to decide how to handle things. I think 9 cities and 9 villages/towns would be fine, unless we want to do 9 cities and 9 parks, but right now, that list of all the villages and towns is too long.
