Governor David Paterson stepped up on his stump across from Tarrytown station today to announce $39 mil worth of stimulus funds to be spent renovating the station.
Some 2,800 riders use the Tarrytown station each day, many schlepping over the Tappan Zee from Rockland and points west.
The Journal News reports that the funds include $1.7 million to fix the 120-year-old station house, whose renovation began in March and includes a new slate roof. Nestled alongside the Hudson, the Tarrytown building was part of the old North Central Railroad.
It doesn’t say what the other $37 million will be spent on.
