Mark Twain Riverfront Park Upgrade
The funds are from the New York Main Street Program which provides financial resources to communities revitalizing historic downtown neighborhoods. The park was updated last year with new benches, and this time around, historic lighting will be added to fit the Mark Twain time period.
"This is New York Main Street Program money, which is specifically for downtown use to fix up the fronts of buildings," said Elmira Mayor, Sue Skidmore. "This qualifies because it is part of the downtown and it is just going to look stunning."
Skidmore says you can expect the new lights to be up in the park by October.
