Of the winning productions, eight participated in the New York State Film Tax Credit Program, garnering 26 awards and generating more than $392 million in spending and 19,300 new hires statewide.   Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-designate Eric Gertler said, “Film and TV productions are an economic engine for New York, investing millions of dollars locally and hiring tens of thousands of workers every year. Congratulations to this year’s New York-based Emmy winners on their accomplishments, and sincere thanks for choosing our state, where the talented people, iconic backdrops and energy are assets for the entertainment industry.  We hope more productions will consider New York State as the obvious site for filming in the future.”   The New York State Film Production and Post-Production Tax Credit Programs attract award-winning television series, which both film and complete post-production in New York State. Television production has increased exponentially across the state, spurring infrastructure investments that will continue to impact the state’s economy for years to come. The state is currently home to 114 Qualified Production Facilities (QPFs) and each major studio has expanded. Since 2011, 648 television productions have applied for the New York State Film Tax Credit Program, generating more than $21.4 billion in local spending and creating more than 1.23 million new hires.   The following is a list of the New York-based 2019 Emmy Award Winners.   ** Did not participate in the New York State Tax Credit but was produced or completed post-production in New York.   Outstanding Directing For A Variety Series  Saturday Night Live • Host: Adam Sandler • NBC • SNL Studios in association with Universal Television and Broadway Video  Don Roy King, Directed by    Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series  Pose • FX Networks • Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions  Billy Porter as Pray Tell    Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie  When They See Us • Netflix • Participant Media, Tribeca Productions, Harpo Films, Array Filmworks  Jharrel Jerome as Korey Wise    Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie  Fosse/Verdon • FX Networks • Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions  Michelle Williams as Gwen Verdon   Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series  The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel • Prime Video • Amazon Studios  Tony Shalhoub as Abe Weissman    Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series  The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel • Prime Video • Amazon Studios  Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson    Outstanding Variety Talk Series  **Last Week Tonight With John Oliver • HBO • HBO Entertainment in association with Sixteen String Jack Productions and Avalon Television    Outstanding Variety Sketch Series  Saturday Night Live • NBC • SNL Studios in association with Universal Television and Broadway Video    Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series  Succession • Nobody Is Ever Missing • HBO • HBO Entertainment in association with Project Zeus and Gary Sanchez Productions  Jesse Armstrong, Written by    Outstanding Writing For A Variety Series  **Last Week Tonight With John Oliver • HBO • HBO Entertainment in association with Sixteen String Jack Productions and Avalon Television  Dan Gurewitch, Senior Writer  Jeff Maurer, Senior Writer  Jill Twiss, Senior Writer  Juli Weiner, Senior Writer  Tim Carvell, Written by  Raquel D'Apice, Written by  Josh Gondelman, Written by  Daniel O'Brien, Written by  John Oliver, Written by  Owen Parsons, Written by  Charlie Redd, Written by  Joanna Rothkopf, Written by  Ben Silva, Written by  Seena Vali, Written by    Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Program (Half-Hour)  Russian Doll • Nothing In This World Is Easy • Netflix • Universal Television in association with Jax Media, Paper KiteProductions, 3 Arts Entertainment, Shoot to Midnight, Avenue A  Michael Bricker, Production Designer  John Cox, Art Director  Jessica Petruccelli, Set Decorator    Outstanding Production Design For A Variety, Reality Or Competition Series  Saturday Night Live • Host: John Mulaney • Host: Emma Stone • NBC • SNL Studios in association with Universal Television and Broadway Video  Eugene Lee, Production Designer  Akira Yoshimura, Production Designer  Keith Ian Raywood, Production Designer    Outstanding Casting For A Limited Series, Movie Or Special  When They See Us • Netflix • Participant Media, Tribeca Productions, Harpo Films, Array Filmworks  Aisha Coley, CSA, Casting by  Billy Hopkins, Location Casting  Ashley Ingram, Location Casting    Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour)  Russian Doll • Ariadne • Netflix • Universal Television in association with Jax Media, Paper Kite Productions, 3 Arts Entertainment, Shoot to Midnight, Avenue A  Chris Teague, Director of Photography    Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (One Hour)  The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel • Simone • Prime Video • Amazon Studios  M.

The Empire State Development (ESD) Board of Directors met today and authorized ESD to move forward with the East Side Commercial District Program, a new initiative for the City of Buffalo as part of Governor Cuomo’s previously announced $50 million East Side Corridor Economic Development Fund (ESCEDF). The program will provide $2 million in funding to four business districts for building renovations for small businesses in some of the East Side’s most vital commercial corridors. Funding will help to revive traditional main streets and commercial corridors through the preservation of historic buildings, funding of capital improvements in neighborhood assets, and expansion of commercial opportunities in these neighborhoods. Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-designate Eric Gertler said, “With this significant investment in Buffalo’s East Side, we are revitalizing businesses in underserved neighborhoods, adding to the city’s overall livability, vitality and character and inviting the East Side to join in the economic recovery happening across Western New York.” "Since the launch of the Buffalo Billion, we have made a commitment to ensure every neighborhood takes part in Buffalo's renaissance," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "This funding will jump-start ‎critical projects across the East Side to improve walkability and quality of life. For generations, we saw neglect and disinvestment in areas across the city. Today, we are changing that trajectory and building a brighter future." The Governor’s Buffalo Billion 2 program focuses on ensuring that all Western New Yorkers have an improved quality of life, and includes programs targeted at revitalization in the City’s most underserved neighborhoods. As part of this strategy, Governor Cuomo invested $60 million in Buffalo’s East Side, of which $50 million is targeted towards making transformational capital investments in nine investment areas along four East Side Commercial Corridors – Michigan, Jefferson, Fillmore, and Bailey avenues. ESD is establishing this new $2 million Commercial Districts program to expand neighborhood-serving businesses, including retail, restaurants, and other services; and increase mixed-use opportunities along strong commercial districts along Jefferson, Fillmore, and Bailey Avenues.  ESD will partner with non-profits who have successfully implemented similar programs in the past in each of these corridors to administer the program.    The ESCDP, which will be more responsive to community and business-owner needs than other existing “Main Streets Initiatives” will provide up to $500,000 each in funding for exterior and interior building renovations in the following four neighborhoods, which were selected because they represent traditional mixed-use commercial districts and there is demand from building owners: Kensington-Bailey, administered by the University District Community Development Association Jefferson Avenue, administered by Citizens Alliance, Inc. in partnership with the Black Chamber of Commerce MLK Park District and Broadway-Fillmore District, both administered by Broadway-Fillmore Neighborhood Housing Services   The City of Buffalo's East Side, which comprises more than 40 percent of the City's total land area, over 40 percent of total residents, and about 30 percent of total jobs and businesses, has not been on par with the rest of the City throughout Buffalo's revitalization. As part of the effort to improve the economic future of the East Side, ESD led community outreach meetings on each of the four corridors. The East Side Commercial District Program was developed as a result of the critical information gathered from community engagement.

State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Facility in Sherrill Expands Commercial Production in the State Retains 500 Jobs and Creates 52 New Jobs in the Mohawk Valley Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the grand opening of Briggs & Stratton Corporation's newest commercial products manufacturing facility in Sherrill, Oneida County. Because of the company's commercial market growth, Briggs & Stratton needed a larger facility for production of its Ferris and Snapper Pro brand mowers, originally manufactured in Munnsville, Madison County. This new facility in the Sherrill Industrial Park will accommodate this continued growth into the future and will nearly double the production capacity for Ferris, Snapper, Snapper Pro, Simplicity and some Billy Goat products. "New York is committed to ensuring that good-paying jobs remain in our Upstate communities," Governor Cuomo said. "By investing in Briggs & Stratton's expansion, we are helping this successful world-renowned business expand, resulting in the creation of more jobs that are building on the positive progress we continue to see in the Mohawk Valley." "We are focused on growing the manufacturing industry in the state and creating good paying jobs for residents," Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul said. "The Briggs & Stratton manufacturing facility will expand commercial production and create 52 new jobs while retaining 500. This new facility will support future growth of the company and create new opportunities in Sherrill and Oneida County. The project is part of our overall efforts to attract and retain businesses, strengthen the economy, and build on the upward momentum in the Mohawk Valley region." Read the full press release here.

"Skyway River Loop" Takes Home $50,000 Prize for Second Place and "Queen City Harbor: Bringing Buffalo to the Water's Edge" Takes Home $25,000 prize for Third Place Governor and Congressman Higgins Commit to Securing Up to $600 Million in State and Federal Resources to Fully Fund Skyway Removal and New Infrastructure Development Project Will Utilize Expedited EIS and Design-Build Process to Allow Project Completion in Under 5 Years - 4 Years Faster Than the Typical Process for Projects of this Nature Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced "City of Lights: Re-View our Waterfront" proposed by SWBR, Fisher Associates and MRB Group from Rochester, New York is the winner of the "Aim for the Sky" competition to re-imagine the Buffalo Skyway Corridor. The winning idea proposes removing the Skyway and redistributing traffic over a series of new facilities. A piece of the Skyway high level bridge would be re-purposed as "Skyway Park," which would provide iconic views and recreational amenities. The Buffalo Skyway Corridor competition challenged the nation's top urban designers, economists, planners and architects to reimagine the corridor - stretching four miles from downtown to Lackawanna - while also building on the investment and momentum that has transformed the city over the past eight years. Earlier today, nine finalist teams from across the United States pitched their ideas in front of a live audience and panel of judges as they competed for a $100,000 award. "Skyway River Loop" took home $50,000 for second place and "Queen City Harbor: Bringing Buffalo to the Water's Edge" took home $25,000 for third place. "The Buffalo waterfront has always been one of our state's great assets, and by removing the existing Skyway we will lay the foundation for further transformation and growth in this community," Governor Cuomo said. "This competition generated ideas and proposals from some of the nation's greatest minds to redesign this obsolete corridor into a modern transportation network that reflects the exciting turnaround in Western New York and sends a message to the rest of the country that Buffalo is back."
