Highlights of Governor Cuomo's 2021 State of the State Address

By Staff
Jan. 20, 2021: On January 12, 2021, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo delivered his 2021 State of the State address. Below are the priorities he discussed in his seven-point plan.
1. Defeat Covid - New Yorkers must continue to be diligent in slowing the spread of Covid-19, and the State must continue to manage hospitalization. In the future, the US and New York must have sufficient medical supplies, so it is not reliant on China. The Governor is proposing a medical supplies act to incent New York companies to manufacture medical supplies. He will also introduce a telehealth bill to ensure accessibility for all New Yorkers.
2. Vaccinate all New Yorkers. The federal vaccine supply must increase, and New York will be ready when it does. New York will make the vaccine available to all New Yorkers, including underserved communities. New York is launching the New York State Public Health Board and will hire 1,000 people to facilitate a statewide vaccination operation. New York will also educate and certify 100,000 New Yorkers who can volunteer and help in the next public health emergency. New York will open a network of new rapid testing sites across the State. 
3. Deal with the New York State Deficit. New York's damage from Covid-19 has led to a $15 billion deficit in the State Government. This is Washington's liability due to Washington's negligence and incompetence and the fact that this is is a national crisis. It is "a war" that "must be financed by the federal government."
4. Plan the economic resurgence. New York will reopen the economy smartly and safely. New York will commence an aggressive construction and transportation development program, which will create jobs. New York will also expand broadband and make it accessible and affordable to everyone.
5. Make New York the global leader in green energy. New York will be the green energy capital of the world.
6. Anticipate how Covid will transform our economy and society and capitalize on it
7. Address the systemic injustices exposed during this year, including inequity and racism. New York will ensure public safety as well as social, economic, and racial justice. New York will provide rent and mortgage relief and protect and help homeowners and small businesses. New York should convert vacant commercial space to affordable housing and make homeless shelters safe and secure.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
