I'm curious why your article makes it sound like the NY State ABC board did the investigating that caused the closure of this club when in fact more than 90% of the investigation was done by the Schenectady police?

wmarincic i don't think the article reads that way. the good news is they've lost their liquor license. and maybe the police will come more quickly when i call about disturbances there.

When I saw that the Mason's club had a liquor license, I had to wonder what goes on over at the SLA. Did anyone there ever see the place? And how is it that no one knew they were running an after hours club until the shooting? That place has after hours club written all over it. It's hardly where people go after a show at Proctor's. And Mayor McCarthy - nice of you to pile on. You are the mayor, so why don't you think of some ways to ensure that these places operate responsibly rather than waiting for another shooting, stabbing, etc.
