After years of debate, revisions and setbacks, Barbara Scuccimarra (center), who represents Philipstown on the Putnam County Legislature, finally cut the ribbon on Tuesday (Dec. 18) to open the new senior center at the site of the former Butterfield Hospital in Cold Spring.

She was joined at the 6,000-square-foot Philipstown Friendship Center by a number of county and state officials and two centenarians. The county spent about $1.4 million renovating the space and will spend about $2.5 million over the next 15 years on rent and fees.
