A town in New York’s Hudson Valley has a new affordable housing initiative, while officials across the river want more first-time homebuyers in their Hudson Valley city.
Officials from the Dutchess County Town of Rhinebeck and Hudson River Housing will provide details Tuesday on a new workforce housing initiative to sell affordable housing units at The Gardens at Rhinebeck.
Kingston Mayor Shayne Gallo accepted a plaque over the weekend from the American Planning Association, designating Uptown Wall Street as one of the nation's Ten Great Streets for 2012. New York City’s Fifth Avenue and Saratoga Springs’ Broadway also won the honor. Hudson Valley Correspondent Hank Gross reports.
“Kingston is steeped in history,” explained James Rousse, president of the APA's New York Metro Chapter. “Wall Street isn't just a nice place to be, it's America.”
Mayor Shayne Gallo was thrilled with the city’s designation.
