She is a gem. Multi-talented and a pleasure to know.

it was never really that great unless you had a vehicle with a huge gas tank. most cars have a tank under 20 gallons. spending 100 dollars to save two dollars is not worth it. And it is limited to Sunoco gas which is not the cheapest around. Price Chopper's problem is it got complacent and service declined. You can get faster check outs at Shop Rite and Hannaford with more courteous cashiers!

People who visit cant be expected to live here if Schenectady is a graffiti and trash strewn city. I am a Democrat that supported the Democratic team AND voted for Riggi. Love his stand on quality of life. Clean the graffitti city wide AND maintain Central Park. Gets lots of visitors. It is a s__t hole. Crumbling stone bridges, trash that blows all, over broken windows in restroom buildings and graffiti all over the buildings. Pornographic graffitti on kids slides and other playground equipment.
Really not something the person in charge of parks should be proud off. Hopefully the new administration and council will hold people in charge accountable all the way around.

Will city officials please enforce traffic laws. Last night walking dog on upper Union st. a speeding red jeep suv turning onto side street by Gershon's almost run us over. it almost seemed on purpose. i shop on Union and the Merchants as well are upset with speeding traffic that blow tru redlights. After all the money spent downtown and on upper union, can't Police enforce and traffic planners do something to make it safe to live, walk, and shop in Schenectady. how many other folks like that poor 19 year old woman have to be run down in the streets by speeding lethal weapons called cars/trucks.

Laurie is a good neighbor and absolutely right. It's nice to be in a neighborhood with nice people that take pride in home and community. Park is close and so are the shops & restaurants on Union St. Now if Price Chopper would improve their store to make it as nice as ones in the upscale suburbs, maybe I would shop there too.

Police did a great job. Too bad so many stupid people make for unnecessary work and increased opportunities for criminal activity.

This has been going on way too long. Thanks for bringing this up. Add Central Park. Grafiti and vandalism that does not get cleaned up until long after you complain.Despite the county/city workers driving by it to get to their administration building. Makes you want to take the $7,000 taxes you give them each year and move out. And it tells visitors to the crown jewel this city is possibly a nice place to visit but you definitely dont want to live here if it screams urban blight.
One major city landlord with 12 downtown state street properties has a 1 hour policy for cleanup. Once they discover Grafiti it is cleaned up in an hour. They get very few tags as word gets out it will be gone right away.

Let's not forget Schenectady Light Opera Company. Their members worked very hard to renovate the closed St. John the Baptist church one block away and open Feb 25. It's sad that community groups get little publicity. SLOC has done great musical theatre for 84 years.
