This week, we celebrated a groundbreaking for the adaptive reuse of Wildcliff, the historic waterfront property that was nearly destroyed by fire in 2018, and for the construction of a new community greenhouse at Hudson Park  This press release contains all the details.

Wildcliff’s adaptive reuse will salvage the structure’s iconic stone gables, add modern amenities, and create a new open-air event pavilion. Joining Wildcliff on the site will be the Hudson Park Children’s Greenhouse, with activities and programming for the entire New Rochelle community.

I am grateful to the Wildcliff Advisory Committee, chaired by Council Member Albert Tarantino, and to the Hudson Park Children’s Greenhouse Committee, spearheaded by Millie Radonjic-Ilich, who brought together under her dynamic leadership a remarkable cross-section of community activists and volunteers in support of this great initiative.
