Nisky students’ performance was outstanding

Kudos to the Niskayuna students who put on the play, “Romeo and Juliet” on Feb. 28 and March 1.

It was a spectacular performance of talent — truly a credit to the teachers and students, not to mention the tremendous support from the community and especially the parents.

Looking forward to the next one.

Out-of-towner finds a home in local café

Settling down in a new city is always tough, particularly when assimilation requires dissolving any preconceived notions I had toward Schenectady.

After moving from my sheltered, suburban town in Connecticut, I attempted to adjust to the chaotic nature of city life, thinking that I would adapt with time. I struggled to find the places that would inevitably shape my home, until I discovered the Union Café.

Nestled in between The Computer Mechanic and Philips Hardware on Union Street, I unearthed a small restaurant. With no deviation from normality, every visit included a bacon, egg, and cheese accompanied by an equally warm and comfortable smile.

I had found familiarity and managed to satisfy my hunger — and not just for food. With a gracious and sympathetic acknowledgment from the kind staff, I was officially introduced to the city.

Union Café embodied the welcoming and friendly demeanor that Schenectady has to offer.
