I am also happy the current administration is moving to revitalize the downtown area. I want to offer an example of another town we could possibly model after besides Rye.
Hartsdale is a good example. In the town of Hartsdale where the train station is, they have really revitalized the area toward the residents that live there and work in manhattan. They offer cono/coops for young professionals to purchase. The train station has a starbucks in it, the street has a New York Sports Club, very nice chic restaurants that are highly rated and modern as well as a bakery/coffee shop to sit outside in the summer, smoothie/healthy shop and a farmers market. The street has it all and attracts many shoppers because it caters to those that are commuting during the day and those going out at night to eat dinner or go workout. Of course there are the regular pizzeria's and dry cleaners that Harrison has but it is missing the aspects that would attract young twenty/thirty somethings that want to live and commute into Manhattan. If they fall in love with the town at that point, they get married and have kids and then look for homes in the town as well. I hope the administration comes up with a unique/modern idea that will cater to the families and elderly that are already here as well as the young working adults commuting to the city. View Comment
