Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown have
been in court over their respective visions for waterfront redevelopment. Many
people seem to think it should all be condominiums and that industry should
disappear forever. One advantage of waterfront industry is that material can be
moved by barge, thus keeping many trucks off the streets, while condominiums
will generate perhaps 1.5-2 cars per household. Is anyone thinking about the air
pollution and traffic congestion this will generate? The roads of Tarrytown and
Sleepy Hollow are sorely congested as it is. Imagine 2000-3000 more cars on
those sidetsreets within 10-15 years. One way or another, it will be
interesting if the old brick shed of the Hudson River Yard will be incorporated
into the new waterfront.
