Development threatens Rhinebeck’s character

I hope there will be no more developments like the Stortini development near Chancellor Livingston Elementary School.

If you look at that site, you will see how the Bronx, Brooklyn, Jersey City and Long Island looked 60 years ago. Greed and the need for housing led to development of those areas.

Now, with the likes of such developments, we are at the beginning of our likely future.

This did not add to the Rhinebeck we know. It took away from our village. Imagination can tell you what it will look like in the future.
