Nine-year-old Henry Lojano flew a kite for the first time today in Columbus Park in Port Chester at the start of a holiday weekend and a spring recess.
He yelled “I did it!” before that tree cut the flight short.
Nearby at the Port Chester Yacht Club, Joe Knowlton of Katonah was painting the propeller beneath his 35-foot Catalina sailboat, with a material that keeps barnacles away.
He was looking forward to launching the boat in a couple weeks and being on the open water. “It does take you away from all the things that are annoying, like work,” he said.
