2.) For?decades, on any given day in White Plains you’d could find a slew navy stripped skirts crossing over Broadway and heading in various directions. You’d spot these “skirts” at The Westchester, the Westchester Pavilion, The Galleria or the train station.
Milmur, the writer of the blog?Milimurous: The Adventures of MilyMurrary, remembers “following the skirts” to find her way from the train station to her school, the Academy of Our Lady of?Good Council.
She wonders if she’s the only one who has noticed the absence?of skirts in the city’s downtown since the girls high school graduated its last class in June. Is she?
You can give Milmur’s blog a read here.
