YONKERS, N.Y., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- James J. Landy, President & CEO of Hudson Valley Bank, has announced that the Bank has relocated its Thornwood Branch to a new larger location right next door at 501 Marble Avenue, Pleasantville.

Although adjacent to the existing branch, the property of the new location is actually located in Pleasantville, necessitating a name change, Mr. Landy explained. "We are pleased to have found such a convenient location to expand our services to the businesses and residents of Thornwood, Pleasantville and surrounding communities."

According to Michael Gilfeather, EVP for Branch Administration and a Pleasantville resident, the new location offers additional space for the comfort and convenience of customers, a 24-hour ATM, and will allow for additional teller and customer service personal in the future.

The new Pleasantville Branch will also feature additional parking, which will be created on the site of the former branch when the building is removed, Mr. Gilfeather said. "Once the parking lot construction is complete, the new branch will reopen its Drive-Thru window service which has been temporarily suspended. We expect the Drive Thru to be functional again by the beginning November."

"The expansion of this branch, despite the current economic climate, is a testament to our strength and to Hudson Valley's continued commitment to local community banking," Mr. Landy said. "We remain financially strong and with our focus on quality products and very personal service, we believe we have a lot to offer our friends and neighbors in the greater Thornwood and Pleasantville area."

Sharon Spina, an experienced local banker who has been the Manager of Hudson Valley's Thornwood Branch for the past two years, remains manager at the new branch location. The Pleasantville branch is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Hudson Valley specializes in banking services for businesses and professional service firms, including attorneys and property managers, as well as not-for-profit organizations. The Bank currently has $2.5 billion in assets and 32 branches in Westchester, Rockland, the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, NY, and Fairfield and New Haven counties, CT.
