News of the River

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that next steps are being taken in the process of building the Hudson River SkyWalk, a scenic pedestrian trail linking the Thomas Cole National Historic Site and the Olana State Historic Site. A $124,000 grant administered by the Department of State through the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program will be used to pay for the planning and design of the SkyWalk and to develop an economic impact study.

The proposed SkyWalk will include "pedestrian-friendly trails" on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. The NYS Bridge Authority is funding the renovation of the bridge as part of its capital program under Cuomo's statewide infrastructure investment plan.

The $124,000 grant was awarded to Greene County through the NYS Department of State's Local Waterfront Revitalization Program, as part of the Regional Economic Development Council initiative. Click here to read the entire press release from the governor's office.
