And . . . It’s . . . Open! Perfect View from Nyack

Nyack officials broke ground last summer (August 7) on a new 90-foot long fishing pier and accessible ramp at Memorial Park, funded via a $150,000 Environmental Protection Fund Local Waterfront Revitalization grant.

The viewing platform in Nyack’s Memorial Park is now open!

Instead of a continuous height, the railing will be height-adjusted behind the benches, Nyack Village Administrator told the Rockland County Times this summer and on the main deck, portable tables and chairs (box seats), a mix of seating and decking.

The $400,000 project was financed with $200,000 from the village and matching funds: $150,000 from the Environmental Protection Fund Local Waterfront Revitalization grant to build the pier and an ADA-compliant ramp plus a $50,000 grant from the bridge project’s Community Benefits Program.

Tarrytown’s viewing area was completed in July and has a bench plus the three informational panels and two sets of monoculars, funded from a $49,500 grant.

I’d like to know what you think.
