Andrea Macko reports for Porcupine Soup that the Village of Coxsackie won a $1.5 million Restore New York Communities Initiative grant to fix up some buildings at 22-34 South River Street. That is a block of abandoned storefronts with apartments above, and an old theater and opera house. The three-story brick buildings were built between 1870 and 1882. The properties are owned by Aaron Flach’s development firm, Empire Riverfront Ventures that recently renovated the nearby Patrick Henry’s Tavern, converted the old iron foundry into the Wire Event Center, and is building the James Newbury Hotel. In March, Coxsackie won a $4.5 million NY Forward grant for other restoration and renovation in the village. Andrea Macko reports for Porcupine Soup.
