With hard hats in place and shovels in hand, local officials helped Sean and Chris Murphy break ground for their latest service venture, Mamaroneck Self-Storage.  Responding to a community need for additional storage space due to the buying and selling of homes, downsizing and the cost of office space, Mamaroneck Self Storage is a state-of-the-art 40,000 SF self-storage facility in the Village of Mamaroneck, convenient to and from any part of the county. " We've been planning this facility for five years," said Sean Murphy, "and we're working with NYSEDA and Steven Winter Associates to make this a green building, featuring DOW Powerhouse™ Solar Shingles."


John Ravitz, Vice-President of the Westchester Business Council welcomed the group by saying, "The Murphy Brothers understand what it takes to start a family-owned business and to recruit and retain a workforce in our county.  As their footprint grows in the Westchester, the Business Council is delighted to champion their success."


Joining the celebration were State Assemblyman Steven Otis, Village of Mamaroneck Mayor Norman Rosenblum, Village Trustees Louis Santoro and Andres Bermudez-Hallstrom, Hudson Valley Bank's Rose Silvestro, also representing the Village of Mamaroneck Chamber of Commerce, County Director of Economic Development Bill Mooney, and Deputy County Executive Kevin Plunkett


Mr. Plunkett noting Murphy Brothers 35 years in business, their involvement in sustainable building and community service, lauded the company as "an economic engine, committed to Westchester, giving back to the community". On behalf of County Executive Rob Astorino, Mr. Plunkett presented Sean and Chris Murphy with a proclamation, declaring September 4th, 2014 as "Murphy Brothers Contracting Recognition Day in Westchester County."

Murphy Brothers Contracting Volunteers at Food Bank


Did we have fun!

Murphy Brothers was joined by area design professionals, family and friends to volunteer at The Food Bank for Westchester warehouse, packing over 3,000 pounds of food  to be shipped to distribution points throughout the county. How has hunger become so widespread in Westchester, one of the wealthiest counties in the country?  The Food Bank for Westchester estimates that there are approximately, 200,000 hungry people in Westchester County; 33% are children under the age of 18 and 22% are seniors, over the age of 60.  The Food Bank for Westchester is the backbone of the emergency food distribution system in Westchester County, supporting over 265 hunger-relief programs, including soup kitchens and food pantries.

  • If you or your group like to volunteer to help fight hunger in Westchester, contact nancy.lyons@foodbankforwestchester.org. 
  • And there is still time to purchase a ticket or four and join co-chairmen Sean & Chris Murphy at the Food Bank for Westchester's 24th Annual "An Evening in Good Taste". This year's event will be held Thursday, October 16, at 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains.
