Monroe in Orange County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Landmark of Monroe
Through the years the many expansions to the building had covered over Ramapo Creek. The stone & masonry channel structure for the stream was losing structural integrity & due to its small size was a factor in flooding adjacent areas. An idea was born in 1993 to address these concerns.
In 1994 Robert R. Bonney, Mayor of the Village of Monroe, shared the enviromental & aesthetic concerns the property exhibited & saw the possibility of economic betterment. To this end and with co-operation of state, county & local governements, a total redevelopment of the site ensued and Fay’s Drug was constructed.
A picture of Mayor Bonney is on the bottom of the marker.
