Paul Feiner, Greenburgh Town Supervisor, talks about ways to help with the storefront vacancies at the four corners in Hartsdale.

At Hartsdale’s “Four Corners” intersection, long a hub of small businesses in the Town of Greenburgh, you now see empty storefronts at each of the four corners.
Where Central Park Avenue cuts through West and East Hartsdale avenues, there’s at least one vacancy on each corner. A pop-up Halloween store is the only sign of business life on the northwest corner of the intersection.
“It’s very upsetting and aggravating,” Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner said.
Greenburgh officials were already worried about the growing numbers of “For Lease” or “For Rent” signs before COVID-19. Now Feiner fears they may grow as uncertainty and restrictions from the pandemic remain.
