2014 Rivertown Revelations-Sleepy Hollow by Bobbi Egan River Journal (NY) January 24, 2014Sleepy Hollow - Closed since 1996 and dismantled in 2000, the site of the former Riverfront GM plant is once again reported to have prospective buyers. According to New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), the site is no longer a "Brownfield" and all cleanup issues have been completed as of November 2013.

The current Sleepy Hollow Administration did not want to speculate on the reasons why Roseland pulled out of its deal with GM in 2007. According to an August 2008 correction in the New York Times, "Roseland cited increasing costs associated with environmental restoration and a lack of agreement with the Village of Sleepy Hollow on a final plan; it did not cite the cost of environmental cleanup of the GM Site itself."
