Key facts

Here’s a look at the reasons why businesses of all kinds are thriving in the Mid-Hudson region:

  • The anchors of the Mid-Hudson economy — biotech and life sciences, advanced materials and manufacturing, cleantech and renewable energy, and tech and electronics — are supplemented by many other industries including film and television, financial services, agribusiness, tourism and international business, forming a diverse and strong business environment.
  • Convenient access to key regional markets, including New York City, Albany, Philadelphia and Boston, through diverse means. These include major interstate highways, Stewart International Airport (SWF) and Westchester County Airport (HPN), and rail lines to New York City operated by the MTA, as well as Amtrak service along the eastern shore of the Hudson River.
  • Growth in infrastructure and the economy is evident in many areas, including the New NY Bridge, a $3.98 billion project designed to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge and increase capacity, safety and efficiency. The bridge is scheduled to complete in 2018. The 80,000-square-foot Montreign Resort Casino is set to open in 2017, and the Aerospace Materials Division of Metallized Carbon Corporation broke ground here in 2016, bringing $4.8 million in investments to the region.
  • Abundant higher-education institutions, eight state universities, 18 independent colleges and universities, and one federal university provide a highly educated workforce.
  • The area’s natural beauty provides an ideal setting for residents looking for an excellent quality of life and tourists alike, contributing to the region’s $1.5 billion tourism industry.
