Abstract (& Historical Note)

In 1970, the City Planning Board worked with Murphy & Kren Planning Associates, Inc. on a map and report for the New York State Department of Commerce Bureau making recommendations for a 20-year development plan that identified Cady Hill and the area by I-87 as places to grow industry, and Geyser Crest and the West Side as targets for residential development. This plan, financially aided by federal and state funds, was adopted by the city council in February 1971.

This map includes more kinds of land use than in 1937 (seasonal, high and medium density residential, commercial; industrial; parks; public/semi-public; track), but the overall thrust is the same. The Murphy & Kren map highlights development interests beyond Broadway’s axis and the corporation line “inner” district and the report underlines the need for schools to be integrated in new neighborhoods.
