Yorktown man pulls weeds from public sidewalks

A Yorktown man who says he grew fed up with weeds along sidewalks in his neighborhood has begun to pull them himself.



Dan Strauss, 75, says he's on a one-man crusade to spruce up his home of almost five decades.



"I would like to see the town look more beautiful," he says. "I don't mind weeding. It's therapeutic."



Strauss says he doesn't need any help, and if other folks want to get involved, they should choose another route. He says he has the Heights already covered.
