Real Estate Broker Sees Architecture As Haverstraw's Saving Grace

HAVERSTRAW, N.Y. -- Haverstraw, which was once the nation’s epicenter of brick-making, has the foundation for a real revival, says one investor in the community, according to a report by lohud.com.

Real estate broker Richard Sena says it’s the village’s architecture – most of which is original -- that’s going to save it, the lohud.com report said.

Sena, who turned a former barbershop on the main drag into his offices, says other historic brick buildings could be just as charmingly restored if their aluminum siding were removed, the lohud.com article said.

In recent years, businesses such as a brewery and an antique store have faded away, but other valiant folk -- such as a couple who restored a home and turned it into an Airbnb -- are rolling up their sleeves and jumping in, the lohud.com article said.

Local officials are seeing their investment in the village as a positive sign, lohud.com reported.
