Standard Chartered deal seen as ‘wake-up call’

T

BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

he controversial $340 million settlement between Standard Chartered Bank and the New York State Department of Financial Services should be a “wake-up call” for national and international financial institutions licensed to operate in New York, experts say. Federal regulators and banking veterans reacted with surprise when DFS Supt. Benjamin M. Lawsky announced Aug. 14 that despite ongoing federal investigations, the 10-month-

old department had unilaterally negotiated a settlement with Standard Chartered. The London-based bank, according to the DFS complaint, “programmatically engaged in deceptive and fraudulent misconduct” as it moved at least $250 billion through its New York City branch for Iranian clients that were subject to U.S. economic sanctions. Several financial and legal experts said the settlement could have a far-reaching effect on Hudson Valley institutions and Fairfield County, Conn.-based banks that operate in New York, perhaps causing them to bolster their

compliance departments. Matthew Carey, director of the Center for Financial Market Studies at Iona College in New Rochelle, called the settlement “an unprecedented situation in that it raises a whole new set of regulatory issues” for foreign banks and U.S. banks with branches in New York state. While multinational financial institutions typically have entire divisions devoted to compliance, Carey said the settlement might prompt more companies to create new positions to navigate New York state’s regulatory system.

he Metropolitan Transportation Authority is considering an appeal of a decision by the U.S. District Court to allow a series of anti-Islamic advertisements to run across the Hudson Valley, southern Connecticut and New York City. The ads, taken out by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, have sparked controversy from Westchester to San Francisco, with Judge Paul Engelmayer of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruling that under the First Amendment, they must be allowed to run. The group’s leadership includes a seminar instructor for U.S. government agencies. AFDI paid $10,000 for the most recent series of ads, which read “19,250 Deadly Islamic Attacks Since 9/11/01 And Counting. It’s Not Islamophobia, It’s Islamorealism.” The ads are scheduled to be displayed on 75 recycling bins spread across 51 Metro-North stations from Aug. 6 to Sept. 2. “MTA does not decide whether to allow a proposed advertisement based upon its viewpoint and the MTA does not endorse the viewpoint in this or any other paid advertiseMTA, page 6

Having survived, dealers build in Westchester BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

ith sputtering sales and in need of government life support just three summers ago, the auto industry shows signs of a rebound and new growth in Westchester County, where dealers are building or have opened larger showrooms and service centers in a retooled market. The head of a metropolitan auto dealers trade group, however, said the new construction on dealer lots often is required by auto manufacturers and could add to the financial burdens of business owners struggling to emerge from “a very tough time.” An industry mainstay in the county, 93-year-old Curry Automotive is the latest company here to make a multimillion-dollar investment to modernize its showrooms, after traveling a rough patch in the recession and credit crisis that deflated dealers and put many out of business here and across the country. “During the recession, we gave four stores back to the manufacturer,” Bob Carinci, chief operating officer at Curry Automotive, said at the Curry SubaruHyundai dealership that opened in June on Cortlandt Boulevard, Route 6, in the town of Cortlandt. Designed for energy conservation and efficiency, the 30,000 square-foot facility has been called the area’s first “green” dealership for its conformance to design standards of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. In early 2009, the federal government pumped out $24.9 billion in bailout loans to General Motors and Chrysler and followed that stimulus measure with customer rebates of $3,500 and $4,500 for car trade-ins in the so-called Cash for Clunkers program. The Big Three domestic automakers – GM, Chrysler and Ford already had greatly cut back or eliminated customer leasing, which accounts for a

large share of dealers’ business in metropolitan New York and in the Northeast. ‘That’s when we decided it was the best time to get out of the Ford business and consolidate Subaru with Hyundai,” said Carinci. “It was a better business plan for us to not operate Ford.” The company relocated its Subaru dealership from Crompond Road in Yorktown, where it also operates Honda and Nissan franchises, to its Route 6 location in Cortlandt. Curry in 2007 had acquired the Geis Auto Mall there, making it the largest automotive dealer group in the Hudson Valley, with Chevrolet, Acura, Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Subaru and Hyundai franchises. “We came out smarter and stronger when we came out of it,” Carinci said of a severe slump that lasted about 1 ½ years. “That’s why we’re doing these renovations now. We started this renovation plan during that period. It takes that long to get this approved.” Curry’s green Subaru-Hyundai construction project cost about $10.5 million, Carinci said. On an adjacent Cortlandt Avenue lot, the company is beginning demolition work to replace its Toyota showroom and office with a greendesigned, 36,000-square-foot facility at a cost of $7.5 million. In Scarsdale, where Curry Automotive has its headquarters, the company is renovating its 30,000-square-foot Chevrolet dealership. Carinci did not have a cost estimate for that project. “Chevrolet a few years ago closed a few stores” in Westchester, said Carinci. “We were fortunate to be one of the stores they wanted to keep. I think they had their eyes off the ball for a while and now they build great products. I think Chevrolet, and GM in general, is much more aware of what they need to do now to be successful.” In the peak years before the recession, approximately 17 million autos were sold annually in the U.S., according to the Greater New York Automobile Dealers

Association. In 2008 and 2009, annual sales plummeted to about 9.5 million. In the metropolitan area, auto sales since 2009 have increased approximately 30 percent, “an enormous rebound,” said Mark Schienberg, the association’s president. Nationally, vehicle sales could reach the 12.5 million to 13 million range by the end of this year, he said. “Business is more realistic now,” said Carinci, seated in front of a massive gas fireplace in a customer waiting area of Curry’s green showroom. “I think before the recession things were out of control,” with lenders “approving people who shouldn’t have been in the cars they were approved for. I think now this is where business will be and should be.” Financing by manufacturers and other lenders has “definitely tightened up,” said Carinci, “and other banks aren’t even in the leasing business now when they used to be.” He said leasing accounts for 70 percent of Curry’s Acura business, 60 percent of its Honda deals and 35 percent of its Toyota business. At Tarrytown Honda, owner Dwight Dachnowicz recently received site plan approval from village officials for a 70,000-square-foot dealership that will replace his 19,000-square-foot building at 480 S. Broadway. The project’s estimated cost has risen from $6 million initially to $9.5 million to $10 million, Dachnowicz said. “It’s like buying it (the business) all over again,” Dachnowicz said of his investment. He purchased the Honda franchise, his only dealership, in 2006. In a nod to customers’ changed buying patterns, Dachnowicz will replace 11 service bays with a 30-bay service center. In the recession, “The mood of the customers changed” and their focus shifted to used cars and servicing, he said. “You have to react. The used-car business has been excellent since 2008.” “I think that the used-car market will remain strong even as the inventories build. I think the buying public has become so acutely aware of their own

budget” that they’ll continue to shop for late-model used cars, he said. In Tarrytown alone, Dachnowicz said, four or five auto dealers have closed since 2008. At Tarrytown Honda, business has rebounded from “about break-even” in 2008 to 2012 sales that are up 23 percent from last year. In the suburban counties of Westchester, Fairfield in Connecticut and Bergen in New Jersey, Honda sales are up 14 percent from 2011, he said. “Now that the dealer base has diminished, the industry itself is on the rise,” said Dachnowicz. “The overall product quality across the board, whether it’s domestic or foreign, has gone up. “ The industry crash four years ago “was also a lesson,” he said. “It was really about managing expenses. There was a period there when I didn’t draw a salary for a little over a year.” After tightening up on credit, banks are aggressively reentering the auto financing market. Dachnowicz said Bank of America, which financed his dealer floor plan loan, and other banks “are probably more aggressive than I’ve seen in the last five years.” And banks are more actively lending at competitive interest rates in the used-car market, he noted. Dachnowicz said low interest rates make this a favorable time for construction projects like his. He refinanced with Bank of America last November and at the same time arranged his construction loan. But facility improvements can have “a dark side,” cautioned Schienberg at the Greater New York Automobile Dealer Association. “The manufacturers are the ones that are stressing for many of the dealers to put lots of money into these facilities.” The required improvements “could put a burden on small businesses,” he said. “The manufacturer in many cases sets the standards on what a dealer is required to look like,” said Schienberg. “Those standards at times can be unreasonable and very costly.”

Capitol improvements Businesses await ‘game-changer’ for downtown Port Chester

The Capitol Theatre, following extensive renovations and restorations.

BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

T

he Roots. The Steve Miller Band. Ben Folds Five. Blues Traveler. And a guy named Bob Dylan. The much-anticipated Sept. 4 reopening of Port Chester’s 1,800-seat Capitol Theatre has village businesses salivating over the prospect of throngs of concert-goers and new visitors to the area. Their concern? “Parking,” says Anderson Moretti, general manager of Churrascaria Copacabana, a Brazilian steakhouse just blocks away from the theater. The unveiling of a newly renovated

Capitol Theatre – which hasn’t featured a public rock concert since the Rolling Stones taped an MTV special there in 1997 – could spark “a revival of the whole Port Chester business community,” Moretti said. “Everybody’s been talking about it,” he said. But, Moretti added, “the second most talked about thing is the parking situation … In the restaurant business and the entertainment business, it’s all about first impressions.” Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla said Capitol Theatre partners Peter Shapiro and Marvin Ravikoff have been working closely with the village and the police department to

determine the best strategy for handling the expected crowds. The village recently completed a shortterm parking improvement plan, which was unrelated to the theater’s reopening and which created an additional 20 parking spaces in the downtown, Pilla said. Now, village officials are looking into the possibility of building a 450-space parking structure within a couple blocks of the theater and Port Chester’s Metro-North Railroad station, which Pilla said would cost around $9 million. In Westchester County, structured parking typically costs between $20,000 and $25,000 per space to build Pilla said the village has also been in discussions with G&S Port Chester L.L.C., which owns The Waterfront at Port Chester complex, about using a portion of the parking structure there to accommodate valet parking for theater patrons. He said he is confident that a plan will be finalized in the remaining week and a half before Dylan takes the stage to reopen the theather. “I think it’ll be a game-changer for downtown Port Chester,” Pilla said. The Capitol Theatre first opened in 1926, designed by Thomas W. Lamb, who also designed

the United Palace Theater in Manhattan. With the likes of Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Santana and Jefferson Airplane headlining in the 1970s, the Capitol made a brief comeback with scattered performances in the early 1990s, but has otherwise served as an events venue for the better part of two decades. Under new management, the theater has been undergoing a “multimillion - dollar” renovation since the beginning of the year. Peter Shapiro, who owns the Brooklyn Bowl in New York City, last year bought Capitol Enterprises Inc., which was the theater’s previous management company. In December, Shapiro agreed to a longterm lease with theater owner Telco Holding Corp., led by chairman and CEO Marvin Ravikoff. Since, the theater has undergone “an extensive restoration and polish,” Shapiro said. “A lot of effort, a lot of people and a lot of resources have gone into giving the theater the top of the line, latest sound system, lighting system, projecting system, new carpets … there won’t be a piece of the theater that hasn’t been renovated and hasn’t been touched,” he said, adding that “the fundamentals, the originals, are all still there.”

HY Advisors NY Inc. is teaming with CFO Alliance, a global community of senior financial leaders, to address the needs of middle-market company executives seeking innovative ways to support corporate decision-making amid unsettled market conditions. UHY officials in a press release said the new partnership provides a national, collaborative platform for finance leaders and experts to openly discuss, debate and dissect critical opportunities. “Uncertainty in the markets has impacted our nation’s recovery,” said Michael Mahoney, managing director of UHY Advisors’ metropolitan area, which includes the accounting and business consultant’s White Plains office. “We’ve seen momentum tempered by pullback in the middle market, and we believe this partnership is one way that UHY Advisors NY can do its part to fuel improved confidence and performance within this economically vital sector.” Nick Araco Jr., president and CEO of CFO Alliance, said the partnership “can

address the aura of caution among middle market executives by providing a vehicle for thoughtful discussion, the type of exchange that can serve as an inspiration and validation of viable ideas in the areas of investing, hiring, finance and operations.” Using both online and offline technologies, CFO Alliance brings together more than 3,000 CFOs, vice presidents of finance, accounting and finance directors and other established senior financial leaders and executives for bimonthly roundtables in 13 U.S. markets via live-streaming, dial-in and video conferencing. Discussions are posted online for future reference. Mahoney said UHY, which serves middle-market companies, is “creating a think-tank environment specifically for this sector that has such an oversized impact on Main Street.” He said UHY and CFO Alliance will work with the Fordham Business School and other academic leaders on the roundtables. Middle-market executives who want to participate in the UHY-sponsored CFO Alliance forums can get more information by visiting TheCFOAlliance.org.

Rovereto new Hometown Bank president Marjorie S. Rovereto is the new president of Hometown Bank of the Hudson Valley, which is based in Walden. The move was made by the board of directors of Hometown Bancorp Inc., its mutual holding company parent Hometown Bancorp, MHC and its wholly owned subsidiary, Hometown Bank of the Hudson Valley. Rovereto, a senior executive and leader in the community banking industry with more than 25 years’ experience, assumed her duties Aug. 13. The past president and CEO of Ulster Savings Bank earned a bachelor of science in finance and management from The State

University of New York at Albany. She is also a graduate of the National School of Finance and Management at Fairfield University and has studied at Union College. She is taking over for Thomas F. Gibney, president and CEO, who will be retiring at the end of the year. He will remain CEO until his retirement.

Its mortgage and loan center is in Walden, with its commercial loan division next door to its Newburgh branch. – Mary Shustack

Laundry plant shrinks energy costs White Plains Linen, a commercial laundry company with a nearly 75-year-history in Westchester County, has consolidated its Peekskill operations in a 100,000-square-foot facility whose energy-conserving design and equipment could be a model for the industry. A company spokesman said the $6 million project included reconstructing two buildings and building 30,000 square feet of new space at the White Linen plant at 4 John Walsh Boulevard in Peekskill. Design work for the facility began in 2009 with the goal of reducing the industrial laundry service’s environmental impact.

Company officials in a press release said the new facility will immediately reduce the plant’s energy usage by 25 percent. By the end of 2013, the company expects to reduce its carbon footprint by an additional 70 percent when it converts most of its gas-burning equipment to steam heat. The steam will be obtained from an outside source that converts municipal waste to energy. The new facility is expected to be in full operation by the end of August. At full capacity, the plant will turn out 1 million pounds of restaurant linens weekly. – John Golden


social media trends

by bruce newman

I

Political faux pas

t’s very easy to become well known online if you’re a politician. All you need to do is make an incredibly stupid or insensitive statement. When GOP representative Todd Akin from Missouri recently stated, “Victims of ‘legitimate rape’ don’t get pregnant,” he ignited a firestorm on Twitter and became a trending topic in the United States and shortly thereafter in the United Kingdom. Traditional media, though late to react to this statement, subsequently began reporting on Akin’s remark and continued silence. On an incredible side note, Akin serves on the House Science and Technology committee. This sequence indicates several important aspects of social media and the increasing role it plays in political campaigns. First, politicians must be much more careful about what they say. Outrageous statements that in the past were overlooked or simply ignored are now closely monitored for their content and sensitivity. Should the opportunity arise, these statements are rapidly transmitted and shared through social media by willing opponents and their supporters. In this instance, the office of Akin’s opponent, Claire McCaskill, has already increased her number of tweets commenting on his statement and requesting donations to defeat him. Second, politicians need to be more Internet savvy. While most politicians already have at least one staff member ghost posting on social media for them, they need to start getting personally involved with social media themselves. This will allow them to rapidly reach their constituents and target audience while also greatly aiding their public relations defense should an emergency situation – possibly of their own doing – arise. Just sitting quietly and hoping that the problem will disappear rarely works, particularly with social media and a highly polarized political environment. Right now, social media is still dependent on traditional media to selectively report trending and popular online topics. If the volume of traffic on some topic is sufficiently loud or outrageous, it might be picked up and broadcast by traditional media to a much larger and more receptive audience. Although the receptivity of this response depends on the demographics – most notably age – by the next election, if current trends continue, increased social media interactivity by politicians will be a necessity. All political parties are increasingly resorting to social media to highlight political gaffes. A recent ridiculous statement broadcast on traditional media, Vice President Joe Biden’s statement that Mitt

Romney will try to “put y’all (Wall Street) back in chains” was immediately attacked both through traditional media and online, the latter primarily through a series of tweets. Biden’s office, to its credit quickly moved to correct his mistake, though without issuing an apology. It’s not just that Facebook is approaching a billion subscribers and billions of tweets are being produced every few days, but rather the need for political campaigns and organizations to increasingly resort to social media for activities ranging from public relations to fundraising. Given the incredible cost of this anticipated $2 billion presidential campaign, social media is a huge bargain whose political power has only rarely been demonstrated. One such instance was when AOL bought The Huffington Post – a 6-year-old liberal online newspaper – for $315 million in early 2011, highlighting the rapid rise and importance of online news. These political ramifications also raise an interesting question, though, and one which as a business person you must deal with every day: reputation management. What you say and what other people say about you can greatly help or hurt your reputation and business. If you own a restaurant, for example, how would a few bad ratings and comments affect your business? The same holds true for many professions, including doctors, attorneys and even plumbers. Think about this. Todd Akin, a congressman you probably never heard of, made an incredibly offensive statement that because of social media – and maybe this article – you are now aware of. Just hearing his statement can certainly affect your opinion of him and his beliefs or at the very least make you want to scrutinize him more closely. In the brief time he took to utter his statement, he inflicted significant damage on himself and his campaign. Social media is a terrific and exciting environment that can greatly enable your business growth while branding you as an industry leader. However, it is also a doubleedged sword. When you use social media, remember that for better or worse people are judging you by what you say and how you act. Be prepared to act quickly, if necessary, as it takes much less time to hurt a reputation than to build one.

Westchester Engaged in Regional Sustainability Plan, Leveraging $865,000 from NYSERDA

R

By Elizabeth Silleck

egional, holistic strategies for economic development and environmental sustainability are increasingly gaining traction as more cooperative, intelligent and effective ways to approach government planning. Governor Cuomo’s Cleaner, Greener Communities Program recently launched such a regional strategy to guide the future of investment and environmental planning in New York. Orange County Planning Commissioner David Church characterized the planning process as a “unique opportunity to define what’s special for the MidHudson as a region, rather than taking a state-defined approach or a fragmented, competitive tack.” Greenburgh Planning Commissioner Thomas Madden and Commissioner Church are leading the MidHudson Regional Sustainability Planning Consortium, which also includes Planning Commissioners from Westchester, Dutchess, Putnam, and Rockland counties, a senior representative for Sullivan County and the chairs of the Northern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (NWEAC), Southern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (SWEAC), the Center for Research, Regional Education and Outreach (CRREO) and Pace University Land Use Law Center Mayors’ Redevelopment Roundtable. The Consortium will leverage $865,000 awarded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to develop a comprehensive sustainability plan, and is supported by a consulting team including Ecology & Environment Inc., VHB Engineering PC, Regional Plan Association, Croton Energy Group Inc., and the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. The process is further informed by “work groups”, comprised of citizens of the region who volunteered their expertise to gather data and advise the Consortium. The ultimate draft plan will be submitted to the State upon the consensus of the Consortium members by the Christmas Day deadline this year. According to Planning Commissioner, Ed Buroughs, Westchester County’s participation in the regional effort “will bring its experience in cooperative inter-municipal planning through our Westchester 2025: Plan Together initiative, with the goal of supporting the quality of Westchester’s downtown districts and enhancing our transportation corridors.” The strategies identified in the plan must move the region toward the Governor’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% by the year 2050, which includes conducting a baseline assessment of GHG emissions and energy use. The plan will set targets for energy supplies, transportation, “materials” (waste) and water management, land use, agriculture, economic development and open space. The Consortium is tasked with identifying short and long-term goals, as well as pinpointing and prioritizing projects for future

implementation funding. The second-most important factor in assessing the strength of prospective projects is the potential for job creation—especially good news for the business community. The Consortium has released “Project Idea Forms”, designed to identify viable themes toward achieving sustainability and economic development goals and to coordinate projects which make sense for the region. Commissioner Madden anticipates this study will develop a process that will leverage resources to support “the right projects, at the right time, at the right cost, in order to have the greatest positive impact on the region”. Madden described an example of the type of potential project that would make smart use of a current “burden” here in Westchester. “Close to 200,000 tons of yard waste are currently trucked to different facilities for composting, resulting in unnecessary GHG emissions, and missing an opportunity to create a marketable product closer to home. If municipalities could separate and collect organic waste, (e.g. food products) and combine it with Westchester’s abundant stream of yard waste, it would create a cooperative, lucrative solution--an indoor composting plant right here in our region. A project like this would create jobs for local residents and help reduce taxes by diverting a product that currently goes into the landfill.” In early 2013, $90 million dollars will become available through the State’s Consolidated Funding Application (CFA), to help implement projects that address the goals of the various regional sustainability plans, including the final version submitted by the MidHudson Consortium. In addition to submitting Project Idea Forms, the public can contribute to the planning process through the Consortium’s interactive website, www.engagemidhudson.com, and attend the next public meeting to be held in late September.

Labor force increase negates July private sector gains BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

T

he unemployment rates for Westchester County and the Hudson Valley continued to rise as a significant increase in the region’s labor force statistically canceled out strong private-sector gains in July. In Westchester, unemployment rose to 7.6 percent from 7.5 percent in June and 6.9 percent in July 2011, according to the state Department of Labor. Hudson Valley unemployment was unchanged from June at 8 percent but was still up significantly compared to July 2011, when unemployment stood at 7.3 percent. Year-to-year comparisons are more valid than month-to-month comparisons for the regional and county data, which are not seasonally adjusted, the Labor Department said. Unemployment increased despite the addition of 16,500 jobs by private sector employers in the Hudson Valley over the 12 months ending in July, representing a 2.2 percent annual increase. In comparison, private sector employment statewide increased 1.7 percent for the 12 months ending in July, while private sector employment across the U.S. increased 1.8 percent. Bohdan M. Wynnyk, deputy director of the state Labor Department’s division of research and statistics, attributed

the increased unemployment rates to the significant uptick in the number of residents seeking work compared to a year ago. From July 2011 to July 2012, the number of employed Westchester residents increased from 452,300 to 458,700. Over that same period, however, the number of unemployed residents also increased, from 33,700 to 37,700. Across the Hudson Valley, the resident civilian labor force – which includes all those who are employed or who are unemployed but actively seeking work – increased 1.7 percent from July 2011 to July 2012 as 19,900 more people entered the labor force. In Westchester, Rockland and Putnam combined, the leisure and hospitality sector added a whopping 7,000 jobs, representing a 12.8 percent increase over the 12 months ending in July. The private education and health services sector added 4,200 jobs for 3.7 percent growth over that period, while the financial activities and professional and business services sectors added 1,100 jobs and 2,600 jobs, respectively. In contrast, the government sector shrank 2.6 percent, losing 2,500 jobs over the past 12 months in the three-county region; the natural resources, mining and construction sector contracted 6 percent, losing 2,000 jobs; and the manufacturing sector was down 2 percent, losing 500 jobs.

noting that multiple court rulings during Eliot Spitzer and Andrew Cuomo’s respective tenures as New York attorney general supported the state’s right to preempt a federal decision in similar cases. Financial expert Neil Barofsky, who oversaw the U.S. Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and who worked with Lawsky when the two were assistant U.S. attorneys in Manhattan, defended his former colleague in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. “This is not Lawsky getting ahead of other regulators,” Barofsky told Businessweek. “This is Lawsky doing his job.” DFS lacks the enforcement authority of the U.S. Justice Department, but it does wield a powerful weapon: Since the merger of the New York State Banking and Insurance departments last October, DFS is responsible for licensing financial institutions to operate in the nation’s financial capital. Standard Chartered has a small footprint in the U.S., with offices in New York, California, Florida and Texas. “But they have to operate in New York,” Carey said. “There are very few international

financial centers … and if you lose your license to operate in New York that’s a huge problem.” The prospect of Standard Chartered losing its license would have meant “a material hit to their earnings,” Carey said. In that respect, the $340 million fine “is not nearly what it could have been, so there seems to be a sense of relief in the markets from this,” Carey said. At Iona, Carey manages the college’s new real-time trading floor in addition to teaching courses. His career spans more than 15 years in the securities and capital markets businesses, including a tenure with ABN Amro Bank at the time the Dutch bank was fined by the Justice Department for illegally helping clients from Iran, Cuba, Libya and Sudan move hundreds of millions of dollars through the U.S. financial system. When the U.S. prohibited its banks from engaging with clients in the latter countries, foreign banks viewed the opening as a business opportunity, Carey said. After the ABN Amro settlement, however, “the whole internal compliance environment became much more stringent,” he said.

accepting non-commercial viewpoint advertisements even before the AFDI controversy, Anders said. She said the policies are clearly stated in the MTA’s contract with CBS Outdoor, which manages advertisements across all MTA properties, and that the policies are almost entirely governed by the Constitution and rarely come under the jurisdiction of state law. Anders said the MTA has not gotten any feedback from other advertisers about the AFDI ads. Other advertisement spots purchased by AFDI with both the MTA and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency have included messages such as, “In Any War Between The Civilized Man And The Savage, Support The Civilized Man – Support Israel. Defeat Jihad,” with a second ad displaying the words “Why There?” between a picture of the Twin Towers and a Muslim community center proposed to be built near Ground Zero. Geller said in an email that the AFDI campaign aims to “raise awareness of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat.” She said the group is planning a national advertising campaign, adding that Westchester was chosen as an initial location for the advertisements to be posted because anti-Israel ads had previously run here. Town of Harrison Supervisor Ron Belmont said there is little that can be done independent of a subsequent court ruling. “When it comes to the First Amendment, it’s very difficult,” Belmont said. “I have to tell the residents the same thing – it’s a First Amendment issue.”

ment,” said spokeswoman Marjorie Anders. AFDI, led by Executive Director Pamela Geller and Associate Director Robert Spencer, is based in Manchester, N.H., and filed for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in May 2010. Spencer is also director of the group Jihad Watch and author of 12 books, the latest being “Did Muhammad Exist? An Inquiry Into Islam’s Obscure Origins.” According to the group’s website, Spencer has led seminars on Islam and jihad for a number of U.S. government and intelligence agencies, including the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force, which is a collaboration of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and other federal and local law enforcement agencies. FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said the agency invites speakers who possess a wide range of views. “The FBI encourages our agents to seek out a variety of viewpoints. That does not mean we endorse or adopt the view of any particular author,” Bresson said. “Broad knowledge is essential for us to better understand and respond to the threats we face. Knowledge also helps us defeat ignorance and strengthen relationships with the diverse communities that we serve.” Anders said the MTA was required to place the advertisements within 30 days of Engelmayer’s ruling, adding that the authority is considering an appeal.

Operating in a lean environment What can you tell me about lean manufacturing. I run a small manufacturing company, with a dozen employees. I’d like to be as efficient as possible. How can I apply lean manufacturing to what we do? Thoughts of the day: It’s good to be as efficient as possible in order to lower cost of goods sold and increase gross profit. The principal behind lean manufacturing is to reduce waste to zero. One area of difficulty for many small business owners is dealing with personnel. Operating in a lean environment will likely require additional sales to fully realize the profits that can stem from the changes you’ll be making. At its heart, lean manufacturing is all about reducing waste and errors in order to improve operating quality and efficiency. To be successful, it requires the cooperation and commitment of everyone – from sales and marketing people to shop floor to senior management. Lean is about taking pride in a job well done. There are good reasons for pursuing lean manufacturing. Reduced costs mean that a company has more funds available for wages and benefits and investments in infrastructure. Increased accuracy makes a company more competitive as customers get exactly what they want. Pride in a job well done becomes a reward and a motivation for employees. Placing accurate orders, managing labor and materials and putting the emphasis on quality all contribute to improvements in the cost of manufacturing. To get lean, you will want to organize processes, personnel, material and equipment so that waste is near zero. It’s not about working faster, it’s about working smarter and more accurately. Remember to work on inventory and your supply. If materials are not up to standard or don’t arrive on time, that gets in the way of efficient production. You may have to pay a little more for a higher quality of supply in order to reduce waste and disruption. An increase of some inventory may ensure materials are available when needed. Lean manufacturing will be a culture shift for everyone. If employees do not embrace lean principles, it will be impossible to implement the changes. Changes in general make people feel insecure. Learning new practices can be difficult for some people. Employees often pre-

sume that lean practices will lead to a reduction in work hours. Emphasis on efficiency and quality may cause employees to question the security of their jobs if they think they can’t keep up. Think about your current work environment. Have you ever thought that employees slow down when they don’t have enough work in order to make the workload last for a full day of pay? In a lean environment, the goal shifts from making work last to getting through the workload as efficiently and accurately as possible. Keeping employees secure in their jobs means increasing throughput through sales (see below) and expanding employee utility through education. Ask employees what they need to learn in order to get better at what they do. Have machinery and inventory suppliers participate in training employees on how best to use what they supply. Encourage employees to master new skills in order to increase flexibility throughout the shop. Lean, without growth in sales, is unlikely to be a permanent solution to improving the company’s operating profit. Some of the largest nonvariable costs of a manufacturing facility are the plant and equipment, as well as related costs such as heat and electricity. Amortizing those costs over a bigger base of work is one significant way to improve profits. Unless you plan to move, it’s almost impossible to reduce the factory footprint, so the only other way out is to increase the work flowing through the shop – which comes from increased sales. You can only get so far by reducing wasted time, effort and material. Plan on material and labor costs continuing to increase as time goes on, no matter how efficient you become. You need more and more customers willing to pay for the value your shop can provide in order to stay ahead of inflation and to take advantage of the quality improvements you’ll effect through learning about lean manufacturing.

Sometimes our chauffeurs are driven.

Alex Whiteman, a Red Oak chauffer, drove one of our vans 1289 miles to help the tornado victims of Joplin. Impelled by scenes of destruction on TV, families suddenly homeless, hungry, Alex, a veteran of Iraq, felt a need to help. He approached Ed and Andy Stoppelmann of Red Oak with a plan to drive to Joplin with foodstuff, and essential supplies. Red Oak contributed the van, meals and hotel rooms for Alex and his colleague. Red Oak and its employees also made other donations, including $1000 worth of diapers.

O

n the surface, it looked like Sheri Sohn Chablis would face a tough road when she launched My Sweet Pea, her “unique baby boutique” in New City. She was close enough to a number of big-box stores, including those in neighboring Nanuet and West Nyack. There was that ongoing construction as New City continues to upgrade and beautify its main thoroughfare. And underlying the entire venture was the implicit risk of opening a new business, especially during tough economic times. Despite all those challenges, Chablis is now – nine months after she welcomed her first customers in late November – ready to say not “It’s a boy” or “It’s a girl” but rather “It’s a success.” Her slip of a shop at 159 S. Main St. is jam-packed with distinctive finds, including fashions from signature clothing lines Andy & Evan For Little Gentlemen and for the girls, Isobella & Chloe. In addition to apparel from infant to size 4T, the shop is a burst of blankets and bath accessories, caps and wall clocks, puzzles and books, toys and furniture. Each, though, has an unexpected flair, attitude or detail that brings it out of the ordinary. Personalization, available on a variety of products, is another big attraction. It all came together when Chablis, frustrated at not being able to find sophisticated and distinctive things for her own 4-year-old son, decided to add something to her hometown’s retail mix. “I grew up in New City so I kind of knew there was nothing like it,” she said. And it came together quickly, when Chablis – a veteran licensed real estate broker whose Sohn Real Estate Corp. is right next door – found that the neighboring space was available. With Imagination Station, a local children’s shop, having been closed awhile,

Chablis decided to bring her own vision for a baby boutique to life. Boutique manager Chantal Simon-Smith summarized the philosophy: “What we do is we try to find merchandise that nobody carries within the area… People want that unique gift that no one else is giving.” And Chablis said that it’s given her the chance to spotlight some local talent, such as the knitters who are now showing their creations in the shop. It’s been rewarding, Chablis said, “to give them an opportunity to be in a store.” Connecting with My Sweet Pea’s target audience is done via wordof-mouth from repeat customers, along with a website (mysweetpeaonline.com) and an active presence on Facebook and Twitter. The shop is also open by appointment on days when regular hours aren’t kept. Looking back over those perceived obstacles, it seems they have been addressed. Competition with nearby chain establishments including Babies “R” Us and Toys “R” Us never really materialized, Simon-Smith said. My Sweet Pea is going after a different customer. “Once they come in they realize how different we are … because we’re so specialized,” she said. And the construction that continued, quite noisily, during a morning visit last week? That’s also not an impediment, SimonSmith said. Customers simply wait out any traffic delays. “We’re really a destination shop,” she said. It’s rare to find walk-ins or browsers. My Sweet Pea’s customers, she said, are determined and “coming to buy an item.” And Chablis added she hopes they always find what they want. “We’re always looking to expand,” she said. “We’re always looking at different things.”

SPECIAL ECONOMIC REPORT DEVELOPMENT

Making more of Main Street BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

W

alking her manager’s beat in downtown Ossining on a recent Monday, Ingrid M. Richards came upon a small, sunny-morning celebration outside 123 Main St. Restaurateur and chef Abel Pinto was opening D’ouro Café, a European-style bakery and coffee shop, beside Docas, the Portuguese eatery he has run for 12 years at 125 Main St. Checking out the new shop and its aromatic baked goods was Pinto’s downtown landlord and fellow native of Portugal, Melita Silva. With her husband, Pedro, a building contractor, she bought the 125 Main St. building and opened Melita’s Home Furnishings 13 years ago. The Silvas now own three adjacent Main Street buildings and have renovated another downtown property on Spring Street for 12 luxury rental apartments above a laundromat operated by their son. “We have to get you on Live Ossining,” Richards told Pinto. “I need to get your information from you.” Pinto nodded. Hired last January by village trustees as Ossining’s first manager of downtown and economic development, Richards was speaking of the Facebook page she recently started to promote village businesses and events. Along with black metal benches that have replaced broken wood-slatted ones on Main Street this summer, Live Ossining is one of the visible changes made by Richards in her part-time, $50,000-a-year job to nurture existing businesses and attract viable new ones to the Hudson River community. Her salary, her new office’s lone expense, is not paid by local taxes, Richards said, but comes from a $250,000 village fund for downtown development financed by the village’s waterfront development partners in Harbor Square L.L.C., Ginsburg Development Cos. and Cappelli Enterprises Inc. “They believe there’s a true connection between the waterfront and the downtown,” said Richards, a town of Ossining resident and a former municipal administrator in three Westchester villages, including a stint as Ossining’s interim assistant village manager. Stalled for four years since the recession, Ossining’s hotly debated Harbor Square mixed-use development was revived this year by developer Martin Ginsburg. Village planning officials are reviewing project plans presented by Ginsburg Development that initially included a six-story, 188-unit lux-

ury rental apartment building linked to a 10,000-square-foot restaurant and retail center and a roughly three–acre public park. The village in late 2011 was approved for a $485,000 state grant to help build Harbor Square Promenade Park. “We believe that is an essential project for Ossining,” Richards said of Harbor Square. “It helps with economic development. It helps with increasing our buying power.” Buying power is one key element on which Richards will focus in her downtown role. It can be achieved, she noted, by building a mix of market rate, luxury rate and lowdensity housing. As young families and single professionals make their homes in Ossining, the village’s median household income is expected to rise. That added buying power will help sustain businesses drawn to open in the village, Richards said. That housing mix “is helpful” in developing a more commercially diverse and vibrant downtown, she said. “When businesses come here, they need to be able to sustain themselves.” Tourism provides another boost to a village’s buying power. Among her office’s strategic objectives, Richards favors relocating the village’s urban cultural park to a waterfront site near Sing Sing Correctional Facility. There a Sing Sing museum could be a major tourist attraction, she said. A waterfront aquarium and a children’s play museum are other possible tourist developments there, she said. On a downtown walking tour, Richards pointed out stores and vacant space in a prominent former bank that could be leased to create a downtown “restaurant row.” Already well stocked with ethnic restaurants like Pinto’s, Ossining “can be that ethnic urban center” that attracts visitors from Westchester’s surrounding suburban communities such as Briarcliff Manor and Croton-on-Hudson, she said. The village is seeking an approximately $2 million state grant to develop a food and beverage business incubator in a downtown building, Richards said. Ginsburg Development is the village’s private partner in the incubator project, which could take a startup business from an entrepreneur’s house to an office location. The incubator might include retail space where startup companies could sell their products, Richards said. Ossining officials have worked with the

Melita Silva, left, and Ingrid Richards, at Melita’s Home Furnishings in Ossining.

Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp. (HVEDC) and Westchester County Office of Economic Development to secure state funding for the incubator. Based in Orange County, HVEDC this year launched the Hudson Valley Food and Beverage Alliance. “We want to create relationships with those types of groups so that people who are entrepreneurs who want to start businesses know Ossining is a welcoming place that wants their business here,” Richards said. “I think it definitely can happen. We just have to work with business pioneers, young entrepreneurs who are willing to come in and invest today. We’re willing to work with them.” Developments such as Harbor Square on the waterfront are expected to attract the young professionals that stimulate a community’s buying power and downtown dining and shopping. Richards noted that Ossining was chosen as the pilot community for The Business Council of Westchester’s economic initiative to keep and attract young professionals to Westchester. The Business Council project will start in early September, she said. At 45-47 Spring St., the Silvas are accommodating young commuting professionals with renovated luxury apartments. They plan to add more luxury rentals at a condemned property they acquired on down-

town Brandreth Street as their next redevelopment project. The outlook for downtown Ossining? “It’s very positive,” said Melita Silva. “When we bought (125 Main St.) 13 years ago, people would not walk down here. They didn’t feel it’s safe. There was nothing to attract them downtown.” Though food businesses “do very well down here,” Melita said her home furnishings, antiques and custom upholstering business struggles for customers. “I’m a hidden jewel,” she said. “In order to do well, I need to advertise. I don’t have the money to advertise.” Silva is moving her business online while keeping a physical presence on Main Street. “I think I’m in the right direction, but unfortunately the economy is not helping us,” she said. “We need to make downtown a destination,” said Silva. “It’s not a destination yet. We need more stores.” Silva said Ossining needs “new ideas” and “new people” to make progress on redevelopment efforts downtown. One improvement pushed by Richards would restore two-way traffic on commercial Spring Street. “There’s a lot of talking going on,” Silva said. “But everything, for me, takes too long, too long to happen. We need more incentive for people to open” downtown businesses. “They cannot forget downtown. It is the heart of Ossining,” Silva said. HVBiz • WCBJ • August 27, 2012

hile the upcoming fall months may bring cooler temperatures to the Hudson Valley, one group is just starting to turn up the heat in providing much-needed funding to local businesses. Hudson River Ventures L.L.C. (HRV) is a small business investment fund that is focused on providing investment capital for Hudson Valley companies, targeting our fastest growing sectors such as biotech, food and beverage and tourism industry clusters. We have heard loud and clear from the entrepreneurs that access to capital remains the most critical challenge facing their businesses. If we want to expand and improve our economy, we need investment funds like Hudson River Ventures to bring their capital to the market. Founded in 2011 by Sean Eldridge, Hudson River Ventures has a double bottom line approach to investing – make a fair return on their investment while also supporting transformational projects for our communities. Earlier this year, the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp. (HVEDC) formed a partnership through which Hudson River Ventures will make strategic investments in Hudson Valley companies that will range from $50,000 to $500,000. These investments will help companies get started on the path to success by providing them capital to expand and grow. As part of this key relationship, HVEDC is helping Hudson River Ventures identify startups and existing businesses that qualify for funding. That is just the beginning. HVEDC will also connect businesses to the many economic development resources available in the county, region and state. This partnership is designed to reduce the burdens and barriers that face businesses in the Hudson Valley region. Starting in the fall, Hudson River Ventures will announce funding for a number of businesses with more in the pipeline for review and consideration. One key industry cluster that can benefit greatly from an increase of capital into the market is our fast-growing food and beverage cluster. The Hudson Valley Food & Beverage Alliance, a consortium of food and beverage companies and related support businesses, has been working to identify other investors that would like to support this critical industry section. The farm-to-table movement is gaining momentum and with additional capital our companies can take

advantage of the huge metro New York marketplace. This alliance is growing every day. We have received the support of U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, the county executives of each of the Hudson Valley counties and the leaders of various other important business groups in our region, including The Business Council of Westchester under the leadership of Marsha Gordon. By bringing together businesses that support the food and beverage industry in a variety of ways, business owners learn from each other and support the industry as a whole. For example, alliance founding members Heineken USA and Leason Ellis in White Plains recently hosted a “Food for Thought” event, which focused on intellectual property issues and protecting a company’s brand. Future seminars will involve topics such as improving distribution operations, human resources best practices, financial management, social media marketing and public relations and getting products to market efficiently. Combined, these events help entrepreneurs learn more about improving their operations for longterm, sustained success. The alliance has grown immensely since its launch several months ago to include such regional mainstays as Millwood Vineyard and Winery, Newburgh Brewing Co., Mohonk Mountain House, Hudson Valley Wine magazine and Pamal Radio, to name a few. In the months to come, the alliance will continue to grow and add to its membership base, as well as explore further opportunities with potential local, state and national partners. The Hudson Valley is a great place to do business, and our goal is to continue to highlight and promote the great things happening here at home. By engaging in these positive business and investment practices, we’re helping to create more jobs and solidify our communities for the long term. Working with Hudson River Ventures is just one more way in which HVEDC and the Food and Beverage Alliance are helping to spur economic growth in the Hudson Valley. To learn more about how to apply for funding through this partnership, call (845) 220-2244 or visit hudsonriverventures.com. Mike Oates is president and CEO of the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp., a public-private partnership that markets the region as a prime business location for corporate executives, site selection consultants and real estate brokers.


Crystal Run seeks tax breaks for Monroe project BY JANICE KIRKEL jkirkel@westfairinc.com

C

rystal Run Healthcare is seeking tax breaks for “Big Monroe,” its code name for a proposed four-story, 128,000-squarefoot office building on Route 17M in Monroe. The medical practice is looking for a payment-in-lieu of taxes, or PILOT, arrangement from the Orange County Industrial Development Agency that would offer $4.4

million in savings over 10 years, along with sales and mortgage recording tax exemptions. The building, estimated to cost $54 million, would bring more than 450 jobs to the area as well as 70 physicians. But Jim O’Donnell, deputy county executive and executive director of the IDA, said it is unclear at this point if the doctors are separate or included in the 450 jobs. Columbia Development Cos. in Albany pitched the project Aug. 15 to the IDA.

HV

Construction is scheduled to start in the spring and would take 16 to 18 months. O’Donnell said crews would dig into a hill on the 17-acre site to accommodate the building. Also at the meeting, the IDA granted Crystal Run tax breaks for a project on Rykowski Lane in Wallkill on which building is scheduled to start within 60 days. It approved a $1 million PILOT, plus sales and mortgage-recording tax breaks, for Crystal Run’s 60,000-square-foot back-office operation. The $14.6 million project will keep 300

jobs and create 200 more. “Crystal Run Healthcare has created 1,600 jobs in Orange County, they are one of our largest employers,” said Maureen Halahan, president and CEO of the Orange County Partnership. “Every doctor brings another 10 in support staff.” O’Donnell said it would be another couple of months till the IDA makes a decision on “Big Monroe’s” tax breaks. But, he said, “They got a positive reaction to their presentation.”

State to resubmit for TIFIA funding

S

tate officials are again seeking federal assistance in the financing of a new Tappan Zee Bridge after the state was not invited to apply for funding under a federal program this past spring. Speaking in Piermont Aug. 20, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state would submit a new letter of intent to the U.S. Department of Transportation for Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) assistance. The new letter would likely contain a more detailed financial plan for the estimated $5.2 billion project, an element that was lacking in the initial letter of intent submitted by the New York State Thruway Authority to the Transportation Department late last year, sources said. The actual letter of intent is expected to be submitted over the next few weeks. Under the TIFIA program, public and private organizations are eligible to apply for direct loans, loan guarantees or standby lines of credit to finance surface transportation projects of national and regional significance. The Thruway Authority previously sought up to $2 billion in TIFIA assistance. However, it was not invited to submit an application due to the limited resources available in that particular round of funding, state and federal officials have said. Resources available under the current round of funding have been significantly increased as part of a transportation bill passed by Congress earlier this summer. Cuomo has said the state’s ability to garner federal funding is critical to limiting the impact of toll increases once the new bridge opens. The Aug. 20 announcement came just hours after the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council, which includes county executives from Westchester, Putnam and Rockland, voted unanimously in favor of including the bridge project in the region’s long-term transportation plan. Without a consensus vote by the NYMTC, the state would not have been eligible to apply for federal funding. – Patrick Gallagher HVBiz • WCBJ • August 27, 2012

UPCOMING WCA SUMMIT TAKES ON THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE

N

ow that the Supreme Court has drawn its line in the sand and upheld most of the Affordable Care Act, everyone is scrambling to understand what the implications of the 2,000 page legislation actually will be. Key questions remain, including: “What will the insurance exchanges mean to employers and employees?;” “How will our hospitals fare?;” “How will access to care be impacted?;” and “What will the impacts be from Medicaid expansion in NY?” Are we ready for the changes? Hopefully, all will be revealed at the

Second Annual Healthcare Reform Summit on Thursday, September 27, organized by the Westchester County Association’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on Healthcare Reform. For the second year in a row, the WCA has assembled an unparalleled group of national and regional experts to highlight the impact of the ACA’s sprawling changes. The half-day summit, Beyond Policy: The Realities of Healthcare Reform, takes place from 7:30 am to 2 pm at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown.

“One thing is clear: Westchester must take a leadership role in shaping change now or be a victim of it later on,” noted Amy Allen, Managing Director, Advocacy and International Business, WCA. “At this point we have more questions than answers. But by bringing together key stakeholders for the Summit and beyond, we can provide a road map to help our community collectively identify the changes needed to provide lower cost, quality healthcare for our constituents.” Healthcare is by far Westchester’s largest employer— generating approximately $10 billion to the local economy. As both small and mid-size businesses outside the troubled healthcare industry rely upon it for their livelihoods, the Summit will provide a unique opportunity for those business owners as well as healthcare providers, consumers, insurance professionals and hospital executives, to evaluate and analyze the issues at hand. WHO SHOULD ATTEND: If you want better access to healthcare, are responsible for buying health insurance, or deliver healthcare to consumers, this Summit should not be missed!

GOOD happening In and THINGS about the hudson valley A reconstruction of photo images Galerie BMG, 112 Tannery Brook Road, Woodstock, has mounted “Reconstructions,” a solo exhibition of photographs by Charles Grogg, an artist represented by the gallery since 2010. On display from Aug. 24 through Oct. 8, with an artist’s reception Saturday, Sept. 8 from 5 to 7 p.m., Reconstructions can be viewed Friday through Monday from noon to 5 p.m. or by appointment. The portfolio consists of fractured photographic images, printed piece by piece in platinum/palladium on handmade Japanese paper with the component pieces then stitched back together to form a re-constructed image. The artist describes the process as an attempt to “rip the world apart and stitch it back together as if I were a tailor or some absurd god trying to wring a new reality out of old parts. In these works, I have tried to displace the event of viewing familiar natural imagery without obliterating it but making it less than comfortably recognizable.” Primarily self-taught, Grogg’s interest in photography began in his 30s following a gift of a Leica camera, purchased in Germany in 1954, from his father. For several years he devoted his time to studying and reading about photography, going to art exhibitions, teaching himself black and white film techniques, and studying with and about other contemporary photographers. His images have been shown in galleries and art fairs internationally and published widely in fine art photography periodicals. For more information, contact the gallery at (845) 679-0027.

DCC opens first residence hall More than 150 members of the community joined officials of Dutchess Community College (DCC) recently for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of Conklin Hall, the first community college residence hall in the Hudson Valley. More than half the community colleges in other parts of New York state currently have – or are in the process of building – residence halls for students seeking to combine the benefits of a community college education with the experience of living on campus. With the lowest tuition in the state (just $3,100 per year), DCC offers a quality education that allows students to save tens of thousands of dollars on freshman and sophomore classes that facilitate transfer to top four-year colleges or success in the workplace. Speakers at the ribbon-cutting event included DCC Board of Trustees Chairman Thomas LeGrand, County Executive Marcus Molinaro, Ray VanVoorhis of architecture firm Liscum McCormack VanVoorhis, Joseph Kirchhoff of project management firm KirchhoffConsigli and DCC President Dr. D. David Conklin. Molinaro, VanVoorhis and Kirchhoff are DCC alumni. The DCC Board of Trustees named the residence hall in honor of Conklin to recognize his 20 years of leadership and his vision and guidance in bringing student housing to the campus. Conklin Hall a state-of-the-art facility, houses 465 students in 98 fully furnished suites that accommodate between two and six students each. The four-, five- and six-person units feature two bathrooms, a living room and a kitchenette. Lounges on each floor and a multipurpose atrium provide ample space for group activities and programs, and a fitness center and laundry room provide added convenience. Artists and other donors have made possible the placement of artwork throughout the building to create a warm, enriching environment. The building features geothermal heating and cooling, reflective of DCC’s commitment to sustainability initiatives. The $33 million, 136,000-square-foot residence hall is owned and operated by the DCC Association, which secured tax-exempt bonds for the project with the assis-

Gloria Steinem at Vassar Writer, lecturer, editor, feminist activist and Ms. magazine co-founder Gloria Steinem will mark the publication’s 40th anniversary with a talk in the Vassar College Chapel, 124 Raymond Ave., Poughkeepsie, Wednesday Sept. 19 at 7 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session. The event is free and open to the public and sponsored by the Women’s Studies program. Steinem co-founded Ms. magazine in 1972 and she remained one of its editors for 15 years. She continues to serve as a consulting editor for and was instrumental in the magazine’s move to be published by the Feminist Majority Foundation. In 1968, she helped found New York magazine, where she was a political columnist and wrote feature articles. Her social, political and cultural leadership has taken numerous forms. Among her numerous efforts were the launch of the Women’s Action Alliance, a pioneering national information center that specialized in nonsexist, multiracial children’s education, and the National Women’s Political Caucus, a group that continues to work to advance the numbers of pro-equality women in elected and appointed office at a national and state level. Today, Steinem is working with the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College on a project to document the grassroots origins of the U.S. women’s movement. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Smith College in 1956, Steinem spent two years in India on a Chester Bowles Fellowship. She wrote for Indian publications, and was influenced by Gandhian activism. She also received the first Doctorate of Human Justice awarded by Simmons College. She has received enormous awards and recognition worldwide, and Biography magazine listed her as one of the 25 most influential women in America. For more information, visit vassar.edu.

Washington’s headquarters refurbished After years of renovations, “Unpacked and Rediscovered: Selections from Washington’s Headquarters’ Collection” will be unveiled Dec. 1 in Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site’s recently renovated museum. The

exhibit features rare, curious and important collections not seen by the public for many years. Displayed in two galleries, this selection of amazing objects was amassed over 160 years and represents the very roots of the preservation movement in American history. On the Fourth of July 1850, the state of New York dedicated Gen. George Washington’s Headquarters in Newburgh, making it the very first publicly owned historic site in the nation. It was here that Washington spent the final critical months of the War for Independence and molded the new republic. The headquarters immediately became a popular attraction and a shrine to the patriotic ideals associated with Washington and the American Revolution. The museum’s two first-floor exhibits have been refreshed and will be open to visitors. The east gallery highlights include a segment of the Boom and Chevaux de Frise that was used by Washington in “Defense of the Hudson.” The west gallery houses portraits of Martha and George Washington along with panels describing the history and importance of this site. Although the museum does not reopen until Dec. 1, tours of the Jonathan Hasbrouck House, the farmhouse that served as Washington’s Newburgh headquarters are available. Experience the ambiance of a house rich in historic significance for this community and country.

Poughkeepsie station gets real-time train information MTA Metro-North Railroad continues its roll out of real-time train information at outlying stations with the activation of four new LCD monitors in the waiting room and overpass at the Poughkeepsie station, which serves nearly 2,000 customers each day. It becomes the seventh station in the Metro-North system to have LCD monitors that provide detailed information, such as departure or arrival time, track assignment and status, for the next nine trains, including Amtrak trains. Eight existing platform signs that currently indicate only whether service is on time or delayed will be converted by early September to show the times of the next three trains, thanks to new software in New York City and operators in the railroad’s Customer Communication Center in White Plains. They will show the arrival or departure time of the next three trains as well as the platform assignment, destination and status. The system Metro-North developed in-house already delivers real-time information to six other stations, where testing was conducted over the past year. The stations include Harlem, 125th St.; Yankees, East 153rd St.; White Plains; Fordham; Larchmont; and Croton-Harmon.

Exhibit opens at Cabane Works by Dion Yannatos and April Warren are on exhibit from now through Sept. 10 at the Cabane Studios Fine Art Gallery, 38 Main St., Phoenicia. Titled Individual Environments, the exhibit is free and can be viewed Fridays from 2 to 5 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment. Yannatos’ paintings address relationships in nature between humanity and the environment offering a contemplative exploration into their qualities. The paintings are developed in a series of thin glazes, some quite transparent and some more opaque. Influenced by various cultural and artistic traditions, Yannatos, who now resides in Catskill, also was inspired by the mature forests of the Northwest Coastal Range. Warren has lived in the Hudson Valley for most of her life. Her artwork treads the line between realism and abstraction and examines the role of the individual in a variety of environments, both physical and psychological.

Sawdust Mountain at Vassar This fall the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College presents an exhibition of photographs titled Sawdust Mountain that document the Pacific Northwest’s tenuous relationship between industries reliant upon natural resources and the communities they support. Photographer Eirik Johnson, a Seattle native, describes his photographs as “a melancholy love letter of sorts, my own personal ramblings.” Curated by Elizabeth A. Brown, formerly chief curator at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, Sawdust Mountain will be on view at the art center from Friday Sept. 7, through Sunday Dec. 9. Photographer Johnson will be in attendance during the exhibition opening Sept. 7 and will give a lecture titled “Wanderings Along the Makeshift Landscape,” at 5:30 p.m. in Taylor Hall (Room 102. A reception and book signing with the artist follow in the art center. HVBiz • WCBJ • August 27, 2012

Despite his personal, artistic approach, Johnson’s pictures document a specific time and place, a particular set of conditions endemic to the fraught relationship we have with the environment today, and the way communities are affected by these historic economic complexities. Sawdust Mountain is the product of Johnson’s threeyear project photographing areas of Washington, Ore., and northern California. His large-scale color photographs represent the landscape, faces and the industry of the Pacific Northwest areas, in particular logging and fishing and the communities and people they support. With his photographs, Johnson has uncovered a landscape imbued with an uncertain future, no longer the region of boomtowns built upon riches of massive old-growth forests. All the works in the exhibition are archival pigment prints by Johnson from the book “Sawdust Mountain.” Admission to the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is free. It is open to the public Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. For more information, call (845) 437-5632 or visit fllac.vassar.edu.

Prints, paintings and sculptural books “Time and Place” prints, paintings and sculptural books by Kathleen Hayek and GG Stankiewicz opened with a reception Aug. 10 in the Delaware Arts Center Loft Gallery, 37 Main St. in Narrowsburg. The exhibit is on view through Sept. 1. Viewing hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On view will be selected prints, paintings and sculptural books inspired by natural, tranquil and unique landscapes. Both artists’ works have evolved uniquely through their relationship with urban and natural landscapes. “Transition, movement and suspension are concepts deeply rooted in my artwork,” says Stankiewicz. “I share time between the bucolic country setting of meadow, mountain and forest and the bustling metropolis configured in a geometric grid with a finite horizon.” Hayek is inspired by the hills and forests near her studio in Walton. “My driving motivation is to connect with nature and be guided by this spirit in making my art. I use simple symbolic markings of shapes and horizon line, scraped and etched into printing plates, building the landscape with layers of paper and colored inks in the printmaking process.” In conjunction with this exhibition Stankiewicz and Hayek will present an artist talk and a printmaking demonstration Saturday Sept. 1 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Loft Gallery. They will discuss how the landscape inspires their work in each of their unique ways. They will also demonstrate how they created several of the prints in the exhibit using water-based Akua inks and the Akua PinPress, an amazingly simple, yet effective and portable press for making monotypes.

What were they thinking?

O

nce upon a time, IBM was America’s favorite company and set the world standard for innovation in the computer industry. In the 1980s, the company fell hard. IBM assumed that it could keep winning by doing business as usual. “We should continue to invest in mainframe computers where there is still room for productivity improvement,” was the IBM mantra. It is impossible to underestimate the power and the danger of mental models. The administrator of a prominent Chinese hospital said, “We know we don’t have AIDS in China, so we don’t test for it.” The ability to dismiss information that contradicts a mental model is called issue avoidance and, like untreated AIDS, is fatal. Mental models prevent acceptance of obvious valid information, cause mental lockdowns and have a destructive power that has put many out of business. Although the IBM mantra may have been true, it prevented the potential for even greater productivity improvements by not investing in PCs. IBM believed in continuity and assumed

that changes would happen gradually, if at all. While the industry was experiencing one of the greatest changes in its relatively short history, IBM couldn’t see it. Like IBM, avoid the example given by a past McDonald’s chairman, Mike Quinlan. After years of building a reputation as one of the cleanest food chains in the world, many of its restaurants had become dirty and neglected creating a public perception that, once established, is hard to overcome. In a BusinessWeek interview, Quinlan was asked about the neglect and cleanliness of properties and if changes were in order. He responded, “Do we have to change? No, we don’t have to change. We have the most successful brand in the world.” As soon as the interview was published the board fired him. As the story of the Chinese hospital points out, the mental model of any management or leadership group determines what type of information the business elects to capture. Kodak was totally aware that digital photography was emerging but, like IBM kept making incremental improvements in film.

In 1990, the prestigious Encyclopedia Britannica hit its all-time sales peak of $650 million. Five years later, sales had plummeted by more than 80 percent. The destruction of this outstanding brand was not a set of thicker, more scholarly editions. No, the demise of Britannica came from a thin CD-ROM called Encarta and since has been replaced by the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia. Why bad things happen IBM, Kodak and Britannica aren’t isolated cases. The same things have happened in the automotive, music and movie industries, just to name a few. The evolution of a businesses culture seems to be the primary determinant of competitiveness in any organization. In his latest book titled “What Matters Now, How to Win in a World of Relentless Change, Ferocious Competition and Unstoppable Innovation,” Gary Hamel who was ranked by The Wall Street Journal as the world’s leading business thinker and called the world’s leading expert on busi-

ness strategy, by Fortune said, “Today the most important question is: Are we changing as fast as the world around us?” He points out that “in industry after industry it’s the insurgents not the incumbents who are surfing the waves of change. It’s Google not Microsoft, Hyundai not Chrysler, Apple not Nokia and Amazon not Barnes & Noble.” Yet Microsoft, Chrysler, Nokia and Barnes & Noble once “owned” their industries. What were they thinking? Questions for discussion: • Are we still focused on serving the rapidly changing needs of our customers? • If we are thinking like an incumbent rather than an insurgent, what is our next step?

Writing the book on running a library

C

aroline Donick says there’s a common misperception among the public about libraries. “They think that publishers send us books gratis.” The director of the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison says, “Many people don’t realize that libraries have to buy their books.” Funding is difficult for libraries because of government cutbacks, says Donick, a Foundation for Hudson Valley Libraries board member and former co-president of the Directors Association of the MidHudson Library System. About the cutbacks, Donick laments, “It’s happening at a time when people need libraries the most,” referring to the high unemployment rate. The Desmond-Fish Library is primarily supported by donations, fundraisers and a modest endowment from the late founders, Hamilton Fish Sr. and Alice Curtis Desmond. The Fish grandson and namesake is the library’s board president.

In these days of zero-carbon footprints, “Libraries are good for ecology, because the same book gets passed from person to person,” Donick says. She is enthusiastic about her library’s ability to offer a shared collection of e-books that can be read on an e-reader, a mobile electronic device. “It is light and adjusts print to different sizes.” The library set up summer sessions on Friday and Saturday afternoons at which a cybrarian, or technical librarian, aids with technical matters. “Patrons can’t just drop off equipment,” Donick says. “The program is educational so that they work with the cybrarian But, even with technology now incorporated into library services, Donick predicts that books will be around “for a very long time.” The library director still treasures a letter received from a man who patronized the library recently – a gentleman enrolled in the alcohol and drug rehabilitation program at Graymoor’s St. Christopher’s Inn. “He wrote

that his library visits helped him in his efforts to achieve sobriety and think of himself again as an intellectual person who continues to grow intellectually.” Donick says he even sent a few books for the library’s collection. She met a major challenge after Tropical Storm Lee ripped through the area on a Sunday in late August 2011. She set out early Monday from her LaGrangeville home to inspect the library. Relieved to find the grounds and first floor undamaged, she ventured into the basement where a book sale had been in progress, viewing in horror several inches of water soaking cartons of books. With the custodian and volunteers arriving with sump pumps, damage was minimized. “Fortunately, it was the second weekend of the sale,” she consoles herself, “and the most precious books were elevated on tables.” Donick was born to a Navy family that moved every several years along the Atlantic coast from Boston to Norfolk. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa., and married her college sweetheart, James Donick. His subsequent IBM

job took them to Paris. He was subsequently named head representative of IBM to the Soviet Union, and she worked in the library of the Anglo-American School in Moscow serving children from 20-plus nations. After earning a master’s degree in library science from Southern Connecticut State University, she became director of the Easton (Conn.) Public Library, involved in planning and fundraising when the board learned the library didn’t meet the building code and embarked on construction of a new library. When the Donick family, by then numbering four, moved to Dutchess County, she became director of the Pleasant Valley Library before coming to Garrison in l996. The Donicks daughter, Ann Somerset of Alexandria, Va., is a retired foreign service officer and mother of two. Their son, Michael, father of twins, is with Toyota in Japan.

ArtsWestchester exhibit spurs rentals BY JANICE KIRKEL jkirkel@westfairinc.com

T

he power of art – it can inspire, entertain, mesmerize, charm – and possibly make people rent apart-

ments. “Absolutely, it does,” said Mark Alexander, one of the principals in The Horizon at Fleetwood, a luxury residential building in Mount Vernon. In March 2010, Alexander bought a half-built apartment building at a bankruptcy auction. The original developer started work on it in 2004 and went bankrupt in 2008. Before that, the site at 550 Locust St. was zoned industrial. It was a yard where construction materials and equipment were stored; and there was a parking lot there, too. When Alexander bought it, the work, he said “was about 60 percent complete. Some of the interior work was started, but it had a long way to go.” Alexander’s group, which is actually two groups, one that builds rentals and one that builds condos, refiled for permits, got the go-ahead to finish in September 2010 and completed the building by April 2011. “At first we marketed it as a condo,

but the market is bad here, the individual mortgage market,” he said, and it was difficult to sell the units. So in September 2011 he made it a rental and finished leasing in June. By February though, the building was only half rented. That’s when the art exhibit opened. “When we launched our collaboration with ArtsWestchester with the installation of Contemporary Rhythms, The Horizon was 50 percent occupied. As we closed the exhibition in June, we were fully leased,” he said. “People started moving in September. Did the art exhibition contribute to the overall positive energy in the building and our marketability? Absolutely.” The exhibition presented more than 30 abstract works by seven Westchester artists for four months. ArtsWestchester will curate two additional exhibitions at the property throughout the coming year. “It set us apart from the competition,” said Alexander, who, before going into real estate, was in community development and was experienced in the use of public artwork to promote a community. He did say though, that this was the first time he had worked with an arts organization to curate a show. Most of his prior work had been with individual artists and murals.

Another show is tentatively scheduled for October. “We plan on having a show twice a year,” he said. “This was contemporary/abstract, the next one may be another type of art.” Alexander’s consortium has buildings in New York City, but no others in Westchester. The Horizon has 75 units, 29 one-bedrooms, 45 two-bedrooms, and one studio. The studio rents for $1,450, the one-bedrooms for $1,725 to $2,025, and the two-bedrooms for $2,350 to $2,750. That is substantially more than other rentals in Fleetwood, for which Alexander estimated rents at $1,200 for a one-bedroom and $1,500 for a two-bedroom.

Given that, Alexander said the building is mostly professionals under 50 and is attractive to people who commute into Manhattan. He said The Bank of New York had a $16 million mortgage on the property. Alexander’s group paid $6 million for it at auction, and then borrowed $10 million from Hudson Valley Bank to finish the building. That’s the business side of it. As for the power of art, Alexander said the higher-priced apartments rented during the art exhibit. “Some of the pricing even increased,” he said. “Great public art can be great for business.” HVBiz • WCBJ • August 27, 2012
