9/11 Remembrance

No one alive on September 11th, 2001, will ever forget the tragedy that took place that morning. Here in Westchester County a mere 20 miles north of ground zero, we felt the effects of the attacks in a very real and challenging way.
However, on our worst day, we discovered the best in ourselves, and through the pain we found hope.
Today and every day, we remember those who lost their lives and the loved ones left behind.

Cooling Centers

Weather Advisory: Westchester County is expecting excessive heat and poor air quality all weekend. We ask that everyone take proper precautions for the safety of themselves and their loved ones. If you or anyone you know does not have access to air conditioning, please follow the link below to find a list of the many Cooling Centers in Westchester.

D-Day Remembered

On this date 75 years ago brave young men from the United States, England and Canada landed on beaches in France and swung the tide of World War II, the day ever since known as D-Day. It was the start of a momentous crusade, one that changed all of history and saved western civilization. Today we remember and thank those who did not return and are thankful to those who did. Their sacrifice was nothing short of saving our wonderful freedoms and way of life.

Beware of Grandson Scam

Scammer Using Westchester Clerk’s Office in Ripoff Attempt

WHITE PLAINS, NY: The Grandson Scam, this time using the Westchester County Clerk’s Office as the “collection agency”, has hit again in Minnesota. This scam, in which potential victims are called by a man pretending to be a grandson who has gotten into trouble with the law, claimed $ 9,000 was due in the Clerk's office for bail. The person posing as the grandson requested bail payment in the forms of thousands of dollars in gift cards or to have the money wired from the grandparent.  Once the gift cards are sent, or the money is wired, it is nearly impossible to get it back. The potential victim did not fall for it because his grandson had never been to Westchester but did report it to Clerk Legal Division chief Joseph Castellano. 


In Memoriam

Former County Clerk Leonard N. Spano

Click on "Records Online" and follow the instructions on the screen to get started. Sensitive documents such as matrimonial judgments or other sealed documents are not available online and require you to visit our office in White Plains and show proper identification.
