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.
