WELCOME, WESTCHESTER !
From ail Ave eau hear, the annexation of
Westchester to Ncav York County may be
regarded as an accomplished fact; even the
small politicians of the suburbs A\'ho heretoÂ¬
fore opposed it having ceased rÃ©sistance to a
measure that the inÃ©vitable groAvth of our
city has so successfuUy urged upon the LÃ©gÂ¬
islature of the State. The vote, uncloubted-
ly, Avili be ail but unanimous in this city as
a matter of course, and also Ave now hear in
the villages that abound in the as yet neighÂ¬
boring county. Westchester property OAvners
will at once appreciate the importance of this
measure, AVhich brings their property right
into a market Avhere financial institutionsâ€”
now bj'^ law restricted in advancing money to
city property onlyâ€”can then also pay attenÂ¬
tion to the real estate of Westchester.
With Vanderbilt's track completedâ€”within
a year, as the prospect how isâ€”there certainly
can be no reason f^^' implaint on the part of
: v". h Ã® who will be then en-
. : ; X " the city within ten
Tlic ixtÃ¹MU EÃ®Ã®A^ii. liiÃ®OBp, ayMcU always
has paid considÃ©rable attention to real estate
in Westchester County, Avill noAV double its
watchfulness in that respect, aud become a still
more A'aluable organ for aU of those Avho arc
so soou to become our tovx'nsmon.
The RE.A.L Estate Record, as the organ
of property OAA^ners in Ncav York and vieinity,
cannot but congratulate its readers on the
municipal appointments inade thus far by
Mayor Havemeyer. They reprosent a fÃ®iir
Ã®iverage of Ncav York's wealth and intelliÂ¬
gence, and there exists good reason to hope
that property OAvners and citi/.ens generally
Avill have their interests dnly guarded at the
hands of the ncAV appointÃ©es. So far as known,
most of the gentlemen thus honored by the
Jlayor are honest, and certainly mean to do
well ; Avhether they will succeed in managing
public affairs as carefully and intelligently as
some of them have been kuoAvn to conduct
their private affairs, remains as yet to be
There is, aside of some minor offices which
many citizens would have preferred to see
filled by more capable men, only a single cause
of regret for those engaged and interested in
the real estate business, and that is that the
Tax Commissioners are not ail experts"in real
estate. No one would dare to lift his A^oice
against the fair famÃ© of Mr. Wlieeler, the
PrÃ©sident of the Commission, but it must be
admitted on ail sides that those who are
charged with taxing property in accordance
with its valuation should, Avhen appealed to,
be able to knoAV Avhat the actual value of that
property is, without being compelled to take
the judgment of others for so important a
part of their Avork.
As to the Park Commissioners, Ave would
like to see men like William T. Blodgett and
William R Martin dÃ©vote their time and Ã©nerÂ¬
gies toward beautifying our city, a task which
can only be successfuUy accomplished by
gentlemen of culture and of extensive expÃ©Â¬
rience. To Mr. Martin especially, Avho majÂ»^
be called the godfather of ail that part of
New York known as the West side, as he
indeed has christened many of its streets and
avenues ; such a compliment would have been
simply an acknoAvledgment honestly made of
liast services freely and spiritedly rendered at
a time that New York was governed by a
cabal, Avhich only looked to its own and not
the city's aggrandizement.
With thÃ¨se few Avords we bid the new
rÃ©gime welcome, hoping only that the Reform
era now beguu in earnest Avili not be perÂ¬
mitted to lose force as time passes by, and
that New York will, henceforth, be governed
in a manner thatAvill secure uot only tiie lives,
but prot(jct the property of its citizens iu ail
its various forms.
