PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – City of Peekskill officials held a ceremonial groundbreaking Friday, Nov. 7, for Phase 1 of a new public plaza that will surround the recently opened Lincoln Depot Museum on South Water Street, The Examiner News reports.
The $600,000 project will take place on a one acre city-owned site. It will include construction of a boardwalk, a new station platform in the rear of the museum, state-of-the-art outdoor exhibits and a visitor’s center. The project will also feature the addition of decorative lighting and landscaping along McGregory Brook.
The city has been planning and securing permits and funding for the project for more than eight years. The multi-phase redevelopment of the waterfront has been funded by Empire State Development, which provided $1.13 Million; the New York State Department of State, which provided $300,000; and matching funds from Peekskill.
