According to Norse mythology, Valhalla was the Great Hall of Odin, where the bravest warriors who had died in battle lived on forever. Every morning they went out to battle; every evening they returned; their wounds were tended; they drank and feasted and listened to tales of great valor. Nice work if you can get it!
Modern day Valhalla has a different type of warrior – the medical community of Westchester Medical Center. Westchester Medical Center is the Hudson Valley region's leading advanced care and referral hospital, serving over 3.5 million people.
Westchester Medical Center is home to Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, the only all-specialty children's hospital in the region. Its Trauma Center is the Hudson Valley's only Level 1 trauma unit; and their Burn Center is the only one of its kind between New York City and the Canadian border in Eastern New York.
Valhalla is a hamlet within the Town of Mt. Pleasant and is known for the Kensico Dam, 300 feet high and 1,830 feet long, with 29,000 million gallons of water flowing per day. The dam was completed in 1915 and acquired as parkland in 1963 from the New York City Watershed Commission. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Bronx River Parkway Reservation. Kensico Dam Plaza offers a wide variety of activities including concerts, antiques shows and arts and craft shows, as well as areas for picnicking, in-line skating, walking and nature study.
