Moving New York Forward

New York State takes on the infrastructure challenges of today for a better tomorrow

The future of business in New York State is moving ever upward, buoyed by the lowest taxes in decades, a talented workforce, world-class innovations and major investments in the essential building blocks of progress: infrastructure and transportation. By making infrastructure and transportation projects a key priority, the State of New York is demonstrating a strong commitment to remaining competitive in an evolving global economy.

With a $100 billion plan to build the new New York, projects like the reconstruction of the Tappan Zee Bridge, now known as the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, are happening on time and on budget. Additionally, other major investments in airports, roads and bridges continue to progress statewide. They include the revitalization of LaGuardia Airport (the first new airport in the U.S. in more than 20 years), redevelopment at John F. Kennedy Airport and Upstate airports in Plattsburgh, Syracuse and Rochester.

The state’s infrastructure vision extends to New York City’s Pennsylvania Station and the transformation of Manhattan’s historic James A. Farley Post Office into the 255,000-square-foot Moynihan Train Hall, a 21st century world-class transportation hub. And progress continues on the $1.5 billion expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, expected to generate $393 million in new economic activity and create 4,000 full-time and 2,000 part-time jobs once the project is complete.
