Nyack, September 18 — A capacity audience heard describe four possible arts center configurations for the proposed village Superblock in downtown Nyack on Tuesday night at the Nyack Center. Ranging in size from a 1,000 seat “regional roadhouse” to a more modest “arts and media incubator,” the presentation also included two intermediate 300-350 seat theaters as well.
Nyack’s Superblock, the village’s adaptation of Riverspace Downtown redevelopment plan, will get its first public hearing in September. Project feasibility consultant HR&A will present preliminary concepts of the site’s redevelopment potential at The Nyack Center on Tuesday September 14 at at 7p.

The Village of Nyack may be nearing the last step of adopting an important update to its land use planning: a revised zoning ordinance. It is a culmination of a multi-year process that has involved much good work by residents who have volunteered their expertise and time. There is currently[…]
Riverspace will go dark and suspend its programming at the end of August. The “Keep the Doors Open” campaign to raise funds for the upcoming season came up short. Mangement says it costs more to run programs than just to cover the rent and let the building sit idle. Instead[…]
