Deeds

The Assessment Office does not prepare deeds.  You need to retain an attorney to have a deed prepared or modified.  We cannot change, add or delete an owner's name from our records unless there is a recorded deed evidencing that change.

As a service to the taxpayers, the Town has made a diligent attempt to maintain and preserve deeds, some of which date back to the 1600’s.

Copies of deeds may be available and can be provided to the owner of the property ONLY for a fee of $.25 per page.  Please note that we may or may not have some of the older historic deeds.

For all others, copies of deeds may be obtained through:

Westchester County Clerk's Office
Land Records Division
110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
White Plains, NY 10601

(914) 995-3080

The County Clerk's website indicates:

To search for a land document, visit Westchester Records Online to determine whether the document you are searching for is recorded in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk.  If the document is recorded in our office and you wish to obtain a copy of it, you can pay a daily user fee to view it online, visit our office, or request a copy of the document  by mail.

2018 Off Season Event Calendar

During the spring and fall seasons, the beach and park areas of Rye Town Park provide many learning opportunities for schools and groups.  Rye Town Park has been certified as a Wildlife Habitat Area.  Permission needs to be arranged to insure safety and to avoid over-crowding. Fees may be charged. 

During the summer, camp groups can also use the beach and park, for fees.  Individual nature lovers are always welcome.  Some of the most popular study activities involve the following:  

Use of Beach for Marine Life field trips – using equipment to collect marine life samples for study on the beach and tide pools at low tide.  See the Rye Beach tide Chart for planning your trip.

Use of pond for Aquatic Life & Long Island Sound Study – A variety of wild waterfowl can frequently be seen by the pond, and the pond’s vegetative plantings represent a wide range of fresh to salt water tolerant species. The pond was designed and funded to remove nutrients from the water and thus help improve the quality of Long Island Sound.  The pond is a popular subject for nature photographers throughout the year.

Trees and shrubs for nature study – Many native and a few non-native species of trees and shrubs can be studied, as well as a variety of birds and mammals that can be seen in them.  The Friends of Rye Town Park have sponsored the planting of trees, several gardens and flowerbeds throughout the park.

Summer Camp groups – Campers can combine recreational and educational activities when they visit the park.  Groups needing to park buses need to make particular arrangements for this, as parking is very limited in the summer months.

Curbside Recycling Rules

Villages in the Town of Rye have “dual-stream recycling.” This means paper waste (paper, magazines, newspapers, boxes, etc.) must be placed separate from commingled waste (hard plastic containers, metal cans and foil, glass, and cartons).
