Coeymans port owner details preservation efforts

The owner of the Port of Coeymans has been depicted by some local preservation and environmental advocates as an New POC Logoindustrial bogeyman who wants to swallow up everything in this old Hudson River community in the name of his business.

But Carver Laraway, who went from a teenage construction worker to a local business mogul, said he’s more than the man behind the cranes that sort scrap metal near the river’s shore, or the trucks that go back and forth all day carrying products like dried corn and road salt from the port’s staging area off Route 144.

The Guilderland-based businessman said he wants to invest in preserving the hamlet of Coeymans. His most recent acquisition is the purchase of a historic, burned-out home that overlooks the Hudson River in hopes it can be renovated.

“It’s all about how we are going to fix up the community,” he said recently at the Port of Coeymans’ headquarters, a horse barn that he had rehabilitated after he purchased the former P & M brick plant property about 15 years ago. “Keep industry to the north, residential to the south.” Continue reading “Coeymans port owner details preservation efforts”
