Sadly they seem keen to keep it in that gray area between ethical and illegal.
Well played.

And what about all those shanties and shacks down by the river in that area called the "Stockade"? They're all quaint and stuff, lots of cool "history" there, but when it comes down to it, are they really worth saving? Let's not let emotions get the best of us. Let the engineers decide what's best. Maybe it'd be better just to let them go away by attrition and put the pictures in a safe place for our children. Think of the revenue Schenectady's missing out on.
Btw, If/when the Nicholaus building comes down, do you think anyone will be held accountable for the ham-handed way parts of Schenectady's history are being handled? That's if Schenectady finds any more value in its history than just old photos.

Being the big fish in that small pond, I'm guessing their bellies are kept plenty full, and another flailing delicacy (but on a hook) may not be that tempting.

I'll bet you can get a great view of it from that snazzy new pedestrian bridge!

Wow, I never heard that on the nightly local news, and they're right there too! All the time. Reporting the news.

I've owned a Craftsman power washer for around 12 years, they cost about $300 now. While I haven't had the need to use the Schenectady train station, I think about that power washer every time I'm walking around other areas, and around our NYS Museum in Albany, and wonder why the city couldn't find a couple folks looking for some work, pick up a couple power washers over at Sears and put them to work on these areas.
And then I look around more at the streetlights that go unrepaired for years (the Campbell Road exit from 890), the neglected road medians and shoulders filled with weeds and garbage and I wonder why the city doesn't see this low level blight and understand the cumulative effect on peoples' attitudes about life here. Then I wonder what kind of people they are.

Unless the Mayor is, for whatever reason, not confident they'll have his back in a certain garbage snooping investigation.

And you Frank are assuming I'm a Clinton supporter. But you're predictably clouding the issue. Either you or that other guy should put up the evidence of your charges or suffer the irrelevancy of trolldom.

Whoa there FrankLowe.
Looks like you have a short memory. I'd say it was (again) wmarincic making specious accusations, maybe even slanderous. You should be questioning him, no? Or doesn't it work that way for the Right?

Fortunately we'll have some law enforcement officers' organization step up to address the problem of cops shooting first and how they'll redouble their efforts to weed out the bad cops who shouldn't be armed. Right?
