I recently took State Housing Commissioner Darryl Towns on a tour of North Hempstead to learn more about the area’s housing facilities and needs. Commissioner Towns is the head of New York State Homes and Community Renewal. Town and Assemblyman Charles Lavine joined myself and Commissioner Towns on some of the tour’s stops.
I was delighted to have Commissioner Towns join us on a tour of some of the wonderful affordable housing opportunities in the . I was pleased that he recognized the high quality housing stock that we have in North Hempstead.
The tour included visits to Denton Green, a Mitchell-Lama affordable housing facility for seniors in Garden City Park, Landmark on Main Street, a community center and low-income senior housing facility in Port Washington, Apex I, a senior housing facility in New Cassel and the Town of North Hempstead’s newly built New Cassel Community Center.
