Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 2021 State of the State address Monday drew applause from the Real Estate Board of New York. REBNY President James Whelan said, “Gov. Cuomo laid out a clear path forward for defeating COVID-19, rebuilding New York’s economy and advancing an equitable recovery for all.

“The governor and his administration have already laid the right foundation for this effort by smartly expediting COVID-19 vaccinations and taking crucial new steps to implement rapid testing resources,” he continued.

In particular, REBNY applauded Cuomo’s focus on reinvigorating New York State’s economy. “As the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded, New York, like states across the world, must reimagine how central business districts will succeed and thrive in the 21st century,” said Whelan.

Instilling a 24/7 environment in the state’s CBDs will “simultaneously strengthen its retail and small business sectors, create ‘walk to work’ environments and provide much-needed housing and affordable housing,” Whelan said.
