Larchmont Villagers Combat Heat Wave

LARCHMONT, N.Y. - The National Weather Service’s heat advisory in Larchmont does not end until Thursday night. So, how do villagers survive when the temperatures soar into the high 90s?

“I’ve been complaining about it all day,” said Chloe Cuggino-Zensky as she took a bite of her ice cream at Red Mango. “Hopefully, it will be cooler for the weekend.”

“I don’t have any air conditioning in my car,” said Kelly Dillon, as she laughed with her sister, Kathleen, at Red Mango. “That’s why we decided to come here.”

Con Edison sent out a news release with some helpful tips and hints to keep homes cooler without spending too much money, such as making sure air conditioner filters are clean for peak efficiency and not setting thermostats any lower than 78 degrees. According to Con Edison, each degree lower increases cooling costs by 6 percent.

At Village Pizza and Pasta in Mamaroneck the workers, who stand next to 400-degree ovens all day, have a few secret tricks.

“We wear short pants, drink lots of water and take deep breaths,” pizza maker Nino Chiaramida said. “We eat salads too, colder foods that contain moisture.”

For village and town residents in need of cooling the next two days, the Senior Center will be open until 7 p.m. or later if needed. The indoor pools will be open until 8:45 p.m. and the outdoor pools will be open until 8 p.m.
