NY Governor Has A Plan To Revitalize Stewart Airport
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Monday, standing alongside Vice President Joe Biden, announced modernization and revitalization plans for four airports. One is in the Hudson Valley.
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced master plan design competitions for LaGuardia and JFK International Airports in New York City. He unveiled different kinds of revitalization plans for Long Island’s Republic Airport and Orange County’s Stewart International Airport.
“Stewart Airport we believe we could develop as a cargo distribution center, and take some of that volume from JFK, thereby freeing up JFK, and moving the cargo distribution to Stewart, which has more road access and is less heavily trafficked,” says Cuomo.
Vice President Joe Biden recently was at Stewart.
“It’s sitting there. It has gigantic opportunities,” says Biden.
To spur economic development, Cuomo is proposing the creation of a tax-free START-UP NY Zone at New Windsor-based Stewart.
