TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – A $250,000 state grant will reimburse Tarrytown for more than 160 parking spaces it built near the Tarrytown Train Station in 2011.

Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins announced the grant, which comes from unused transportation funds approved for a separate village project, on Thursday. Tarrytown would have lost the funds if the state had not approved a transfer.

“The Tarrytown train station desperately needed these parking spaces and this funding will reimburse the village for that critical project,” Stewart-Cousins said in a statement. “The new parking lot provides a convenient service to Metro North commuters and users of nearby parks while generating revenue for the Village. I was more than happy to help Tarrytown obtain this grant so more parking is available at the train station.”

Tarrytown Mayor Drew Fixell praised Stewart-Cousins' work getting the state's approval to use the grant funds for the parking lot.

“Sen. Stewart-Cousins provided us with the type of leadership our residents have come to expect from her,” Fixell said in a statement. “She recognized that this was a project that benefited not only Tarrytown, but the many other residents of the region who both utilize Metro-North and visit our wonderful waterfront parks.”
