Simon says the dark side finally won
But it took death to beat her.
Ferretti gained fame in Rockland for her refusal to sell the house on the corner of Rt. 59 and Middletown Rd. that her father built with his own hands. The Nanuet Mall had long coveted the property. The lifetime Rockland County resident died in 2008, but not before reaching the ripe old age of 91.
And so, soon, it will be “bye bye” to the Ferretti home, a Rockland County treasure. Let’s hope it makes a nice parking lot.
