ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Efforts to clean up and redevelop several former industrial areas around New York are now eligible for state assistance.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that 12 locations have been designated as “brownfield opportunity areas,” a distinction that makes them eligible for government funding and tax credits.

The sites include a former industrial area on the waterfront in Kingston; a location along the Peconic River in Riverhead in Suffolk County; a 200-acre parcel in the Bronx along the Harlem River; a 462-acre site in Cypress Hills; Brooklyn, and a historically industrial area in Binghamton.

The tax credits can be used by private-sector companies interested in cleaning up and redeveloping the properties.

There are now 38 brownfield opportunity areas throughout the state.
