R5 Websites that Westchester Businesses Nabbed First

In the dawn of the online era, as websites became popular, the Internet went through its own version of a land-grab, with businesses and organizations rushing to snag the best domain names. Here, some evidence that Westchester, as always, was ahead of the curve, snapping up some choice URLs.

artscenter.org—Of all the arts centers in all the world, this website takes you to our very own Performing Arts Center in Purchase.

aqueduct.org—We can’t lay claim to having the first aqueduct—that honor goes to the Assyrians in the 7th century BC—but we were the first to lay claim to aqueduct.org, which belongs to the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct.

broadwaytheatre.com—Take that, theaters that are actually on Broadway! This domain name belongs to the Westchester Broadway Theatre in Elmsford.

coffeelabs.com—Sure, not every coffee joint would want to blend the word “coffee” with “labs”—as in Labradors—like Coffee Labs Roasters in Tarrytown does, but you think some coffee-science nerd out there who mixes bean blends in beakers would’ve scooped up this website first.

writerscenter.org—Kudos to the Hudson Valley Writers’ Center in Sleepy Hollow for nabbing “writerscenter.org”—it’s way less of a handful to type.
