Andrew Cuomo wanted the WestHELP apartments used for 40 years. But Westchester and Greenburgh have kept the complex vacant since 2011.

When housing advocate Andrew Cuomo in 1990 struck a 40-year deal with Westchester County to construct 108 apartments for the homeless in Greenburgh, the county agreed to turn the apartments over to Greenburgh after just 10 years.
Cuomo’s deal would give the county-owned apartments to the town to rent for 30 years, as recompense for allowing the controversial project to get built.
