There’s a good article in today’s Journal News, highlighting New Rochelle’s strength as a transit hub and potential magnet for economic growth.  When the planned link between Metro-North and Penn Station is completed in a few years, New Rochelle will be the community closest to Manhattan with direct service to both the east and west sides.  (Take a look at the map to the left – New Rochelle is just above the point where the Grand Central and Penn Station lines diverge.)

This unique distinction is a key point within the City’s request for qualifications for transit-oriented development, issued last month.  Responses are due at the end of July.  Check out the article in the Journal News.
