Dan and Susan have lived in the Hudson Valley for over 35 years and have been very active community members. Having raised their family in the Hudson Valley, throughout the years they have been heavily involved in the local Jewish community, Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation, Duchess County SPCA  and now even more excited to be continuously involved with the Walkway Over the Hudson. The Albinder family has been rooted in the Hudson Valley since the 1950's when Dan's father and grandfather started an apple farming and distribution business that is still in operation today. They employ over 50 local employees in their packing house located in Milton, NY, and contribute to numerous fundraisers that benefit the community. The Albinders are passionate about the “Think Local” movement, they feel it is important to give back to the place where their story began.

Washington Street Dedication

(Trestle sign created by Timely Signs being installed by the NYS Bridge Authority)

We are happy to report that a successful collaboration between several government, business and nonprofit organizations, led to the completion of the Washington Street Plaza in the City of Poughkeepsie! The project provided a range of aesthetic and functional improvements at the Washington Street site as an alternative entrance to the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park. The stone wall, decorative paving, wayfinding signage, and the attractive stainless steel logo installed on the 1889 trestle over Washington Street are the beginning of improvements that will be made to the park and surrounding areas.
