Calling all merchants.
The New York State Thruway Authority has issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) for merchant opportunities at the Westchester and Rockland Landings of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge’s dedicated 3.6-mile bike/walking path. Scheduled to open this year, the shared use path features six scenic overlooks across the length of the 3-mile crossing. Amenities at either end of the path in Tarrytown and South Nyack include public art, interactive displays, restrooms and parking.
The Authority invites qualified merchants to provide input on products and services that can be offered at designated spaces at the path’s landings starting this summer. They should also include information about operational and logistical components. Preference will be given to local merchants and Taste NY Farm Market participants.“A world-class bridge deserves world-class services,” Thruway Authority Executive Director Matthew J. Driscoll said. “As we prepare to open the shared use path on the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, we want to able to provide visitors the finest products and most convenient services that New York State has to offer.”
The Westchester Landing, located off South Broadway in Tarrytown, features two truck stalls, suitable for food trucks or mobile bike rental/repair stations. Each stall has access to electric outlets. Additionally, the Landing’s plaza includes space for two pop-up tents.
The Rockland Landing, located within Interchange 10 of the New York State Thruway in South Nyack, features a truck stall with access to electric outlets. The Landing also includes space for two pop-up tents adjacent to the bicycle/walking path.
Responses to the RFEI are due by March 31, 2020.
