Interesting things

Indian Hill Road [http://maps.google.com/maps?q=indian+hill+road,+katonah,+ny&spn=0.027935,0.060257&hl=en map] has its mail handled by the Katonah, NY post office. This can lead to confusion: there is apparently another Indian Hill Road nearby, and also, while USPS mail delivery to this street goes to Katonah, NY, 10536, private services such as UPS or FedEx must use Golden's Bridge, NY, 10526.

At the Goldens Bridge shopping center (the only commercial area that this hamlet has), the Bank of America was robbed sometime in May 2005 by an employee of the A&P supermarket next door, less the $100 was stolen. Also, in July 2005, a man was killed while sitting on a bench in front of the Golden's Bridge post office; an elderly driver went over the curb and crashed into said bench.

The worst incident in the hamlet's history occurred when two bodies were found horribly mutilated by shotgun blasts in the trunk of a car parked and abandoned at the Goldens Bridge train station, the murders were committed elsewhere. The NY Post and NY Times covered the incident. The victims were Joseph Fazzinga, 54, and Darla DiDomenico, 23, of North Salem. The killer, Gerald DiDomenico Jr., the brother of Darla, was charged with first degree murder and sentenced to twenty years to life in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree murder.
