Two years ago Nyack’s Main Street business district got a much needed facelift, including new lights, benches, crosswalks and sidewalks. In 2013, it got a free paint job courtesy of Benjamin Moore’s Main Street Matters campaign. However, Broadway businesses — who felt their neighborhood needed as much TLC as Main Street — were left out of both projects.
On Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced $70 million in funding for 68 pedestrian and bicycle projects across New York State — including $1.48 million to fund streetscape improvements on North and South Broadway running from the border of Upper Nyack to South Nyack.
