“As Governor Paterson has made clear, New York is facing a large budget deficit and must make many hard choices,” Commissioner Grannis said. “Closing these facilities for the 2009 season is one such hard choice, but is one that is necessary in these tough economic times.”
The six facilities slated for closure are:
-- Poke-O-Moonshine, Essex County, Town of Keesville (Adirondacks).
-- Sharp Bridge, Essex County, Town of North Hudson (Adirondacks).
-- Point Comfort, Hamilton County, Town of Piseco (Adirondacks).
-- Tioga Point, Hamilton County, Town of Raquette Lake (Adirondacks).
-- Beaverkill, Sullivan County, Town of Roscoe (Catskills).
-- Bear Spring Mountain, Delaware County, Town of Walton (Catskills).
