Politicians turn out for Coxsackie hotel opening ceremony

Oct 27, 2023 12:03 am

Andrea Macko reports for Porcupine Soup that state Senator Michelle Hinchey, a Democrat, and Assemblymember Chris Tague, a Republican, were both at the ribbon cutting Oct. 26 for the James Newbury Hotel and The Wire event center in Coxsackie. Guests have stayed at the new boutique hotel since this summer, so the event was ceremonial only. Tague said, “This much-needed project is already doing so much for Coxsackie.... The hotel and event center provide jobs, support local businesses, attract tourists, supplement the economy and revitalize the historic downtown.” The hotel includes a lobby bar and restaurant, an outdoor patio, a meeting room, and a two-story library with The Day Line Oyster Bar + Kitchen, a fifth-floor rooftop restaurant, opening in early November. Coxsackie Mayor Mark Evans said, “Coxsackie should stand as a shining example of what local government and local investment partnering with New York State can do to turn a community around and establish a clear path forward for future prosperity."
