Happy trails: Gov wants a $200M path

NY Daily NewsKENNETH LOVETT ALBANY BUREAU CHIEF
ALBANY -- President-elect Donald Trump wants a wall and now Gov. Cuomo wants a trail.
Cuomo on Tuesday morning proposed a $200 million, 756-mile paved trail to run across the state for bikers, hikers, joggers, and cross country skiers.
The Empire State Trail would run from New York City all the way up to the Canadian border in the North Country. Another section would run from Albany to Buffalo.
It would be built in three phases, with Cuomo saying he'll propose $53 million be set aside in the coming state budget to construct the first phase.
.Cuomo made the announcement at SUNY Purchase in his home Westchester County as he delivered his third of six regional State of the State addresses this week.
A few hours after his Westchester County speech, Cuomo gave his fourth address at Farmingdale State College on Long Island, where he pitched expansions of the Long Island Rail Road, a plan for the country's largest off-shore wind farm off Montauk, and a sixpoint plan to attack the ongoing opioid addiction crisis.
"Opioids and the over-prescriptions of opioids has caused an epidemic in this state and in this nation that has cost us many many lives," he said.
He said he wants to spend $80 million to modernize 16 major LIRR stations that would include new facilities, Wi-Fi charging stations and even public art in every station.
