“’602’ is an exciting new opportunity for a family of modest means to become a homeowner in a community known for its award winning school and recreational opportunities,” according to Rose Noonan, Executive Director of Housing Action Council who is marketing the development.
Peter Russell who visited this past week said he is “delighted to see how bright and neat the kitchen, living room, bathrooms and three bedrooms look now that the new doors and windows are in place. The walls have been paint-primed and soon the new kitchen cabinets will be installed. The house is very convenient, just a five minute walk to the good local shops and the train station in Croton Falls".
Russell is President of Allied Community Enterprises, the developer of “602”. ACE is a not for profit agency dedicated to creating affordable housing in northern Westchester. The County of Westchester has provided financial assistance to assure affordability.
