TOWN OF WALLKILL – The Crystal Run Road area of the Town of Wallkill has come to be known as the “Medical Mile” because of all of the healthcare offices along the route.
Now, an area of Route 211 in the town may be dubbed “banking row.” A third bank will be built adjacent to two other financial institutions in the heart of the commercial district. The new bank will replace a former Friendly’s restaurant.
Bank of America will construct a more than 4,000-square-foot building near a Mid-Hudson Federal Credit Union branch and a Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union office, said Town Supervisor Frank DanDento, III.
“The Town of Wallkill has been vigilant over the course of the last 12 months to continue to try to operate at full capacity and make sure that our projects don’t get hung up even though scheduling has been a little bit challenging, we have been able to overcome most if not all of that,” he said.
About a mile east on Route 211 adjacent to an upscale restaurant, an Adam’s Fairacre Farms shop is scheduled to be built.
The new bank branch will replace an existing one in the town.
