Stony Point’s Neighborhood Cruisers finds a new home
Neighborhood Cruisers, a Stony Point-based nonprofit group, found a new home for its Monday Cruise Nights.
The weekly event that runs through May to September had been based at Annie’s Snack Shack on Route 9W until last year. But the landmark restaurant was sold to a developer and a pharmacy and bank are under construction on that site.
Bob DuBois, president of the organization, said members looked for a new location and decided to move to Gennaroâ€™s Restaurant at 146 N. Liberty Drive (Route 9W).
Jerry Garafolo, Genarroâ€™s owner, said he was excited to be chosen by the club, which is known for its annual fundraiser for families in need, “Cruisin’ for Kids.”
“They are a bunch of great local people,” Garafolo, a Stony Point native, said of members of the organization. “I appreciate them giving me the opportunity to do my best for them. I look forward to every single Monday night.”
Garafolo said the restaurant would hold a barbecue night to coincide with the weekly car show.
The first cruise night at Genarroâ€™s will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. May 5.
The event will welcome all classic, custom and special interest cars as well as trucks and motorcycles. People can also enjoy music and 50/50 raffle. Admission is free.
“I think it’s a great idea for everybody to come out and have fun, and support each other,” Garafolo said.
