Coordinates missing[edit]

The article has an infobox, but lacks specific information on coordinates. The article has existed for several years. On this date and time "Revision as of 03:38, October 27, 2008" an infobox was added. On this day, the infobox had parameter labels for pushpin and lat/long, but not for coordinates, and the specific information on these parameters was missing. Currently, there are now parameter labels for coordinates, but the specific information for pushpins and lat/long are still missing. I have no idea what are the exact coordinates for Rye, New York. Does anyone have a link to a web site where I can get reliable and accurate coordinates in format like this: latd = 43 latm = 13 lats = 10 latNS = N longd = 75 longm = 27 longs = 48 longEW = W that would look like this: 43°13′10″N 75°27′48″W? (the coordinates here are only an example, where I removed the pipe characters) NewYorkeruser (talk) 21:32, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

I have added coords to a spot along the Boston Post Road near where the tourist info booth is located (it is rarely open I think). 67.86.74.107 (talk) 02:49, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

history[edit]

Why did the village re-incorporate as a city in 1942? Wasn't World War II underway at that time? Was there a village->city tax issue to be addressed with re-incorporation? Thanks. 67.86.74.107 (talk) 02:52, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

The article does not mention Rye Town Park, which is located in the City of Rye. It was chartered by New York State in 1907, and the park opened in 1909. The park is 62 acres in size - 28 acres of lawns, a pond and buildings, and 34 acres of beach and swimming areas in Long Island Sound. The park is open to the public. Parking and beach access fees are charged during the beach season from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. Seaside Johnnie's restaurant and snack bars provide dining opportunities.
