Well done, Mighty 21!
I too was a summer schooler, back in the day before the school was air conditioned! Ya gotta suck it up sometimes and just get the job done. That's life, you'll see.

Marc Smalkin, 9/10's of registered Republican voters are white, non-Hispanic. That's a fact you can look up yourself.

When McDonald's announces they've dropped HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) completely, then I may give them a second thought.

"The college has declined to take a stance on the project and the proposed casino that would be built next to it. However, the college said it was generally in favor of revitalization."
This means Union College is rolling its collective eyeballs at you, Schenectady.
Roll 'em!

And now that I've just driven up Erie in the past couple hours I offer a retraction. The medians are definitely not overgrown showing recent mowing. I look forward to the new trees and other plantings to fill it out.
But I stand by my other points about the Amtrak overpass and the condition of the State Street road surface. And of course the long-forgotten Millard Street.

Sometimes this city is like a 7 year old child (sorry kids!). It wants the shiny things the other kids have but when it gets them it gets quickly bored and doesn't take care of them.
Add the sparkly new Erie Blvd median to the dingy, dark, scary area under the Amtrak crossing on State, and the general lack of smoothness of State Street in front of Proctors (are there no standards for how to leave a road after repair work is done?).
And by the way, anyone seen Millard recently, like the past 6 months? It's kinda hard to miss.

I think the keyword is 'amateur'. Legal pro is still stuck in Albany, passed the Senate in May.

It can sit there for all I care.

Great, bring the whole family to watch 2 adults beat the hell out of each other. Yeah, this is the direction Amsterdam wants to be moving in (not).
