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.

National Grid Improvement Project starts April 1st

National Grid will be making improvements to the natural gas system on the following streets in Green Island:

Bleecker Street from George St to Cohoes Blvd;
High St from Tibbits Ave to the south end of High St;
Paine St from Center St to Bleecker St;
West Street from Tibbits Ave to Arch St.

Construction is expected to begin on April 1, 2017 and continue for approximately three and a half (3 1/2) months. This may result in detours, street closures and parking restrictions. The Village will make every effort to keep residents informed by way of emergency alerts, website posts and Facebook.

Once the construction work is complete, National Grid restoration contractors will follow and make any necessary repairs, including concrete, asphalt or new topsoil and seeding.

Thank you for your patience as they upgrade our natural gas system and make it much more efficient and safe.

If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please call National Grid directly at 1-800-642-4272.
