Message from Green Island Mayor Ellen M. McNulty-Ryan

Welcome to Green Island, New York

Our village is unique in that it couples the benefits of a close-knit, value oriented community with the richness of industry. Our history shows that we have always been at the forefront of economic growth. Green Island was once home to locomotive and railroad manufacturing plants as well as a Ford Motor Company manufacturing plant. Even though many years have passed since they were operational, Green Island continues to be a village of economic and cultural prosperity.

Today the Green Island Power Authority owns and operates a hydroelectric power plant on the Hudson River, underscoring our commitment to social responsibility by supplying clean, environmentally friendly power. Our Village's Industrial Business Park provides many opportunities for growing businesses, making Green Island the essential location for development, while our close knit community makes Green Island the ideal location to live and raise a family.

Here at Green Island, you can find a home, a community, and a future.

Green Island Police Department Drug Tip Line

Please note the following Green Island Police Department telephone numbers for your records. They have added an anonymous “DRUG TIP LINE” number to call that goes directly to our Green Island Police Station and you can leave a message with the information. Only Chief Parker and Officer Perfetti will have access to this line and they will determine how to handle the information. It is an anonymous line, but if you are comfortable leaving your name and number, it may be helpful if either need more information. Either way, we need your eyes and ears to pass along anything you encounter that seems not quite right. Don’t worry if it turns out to be nothing. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. The “DRUG TIP LINE” number is 655-7971.
