Cassidy-Lafayette Houses Cuts the Ribbon on Renovations

The Cassidy-Lafayette Houses Resident Association celebrated the completion of renovations at their development with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in October, recognizing the great results when residents, community members, and partners work together.

At the event, the resident association acknowledged NYCHA and general contractor Adam’s European Contracting for the upgrades to their development, which included a full roof replacement, the repair of all damaged brickwork, and updated terraces with new balcony rails and screens.

“Our resident association has been a part of regular meetings with our partners NYCHA and Adam’s European Contracting since this project launched years ago,” Cassidy-Lafayette Houses Resident Association President Dr. Brenda L. Harris said. “The improvements we celebrate today are proof that working together equals success.”

Cassidy-Lafayette Houses is a development for seniors on Staten Island that is home to approximately 420 residents. Since 2015, residents collaborated with the Authority every step of the way in the renovation process, including picking out the “kelly green” paint for their rehabbed terraces.

NYCHA staff joined residents and community leaders at the celebration. Jenelle Hudson, NYCHA’s Director of Resident Engagement, told attendees, “We’re gathered to celebrate not just the work that went into these buildings but also our residents’ hard work to help this community thrive.”
