This is NY. They call Chicago the "2nd city". Are they going to decorate with White Sox and Bulls logos? We don't need to grovel before the great and wonderful Rush St. Chicago was prairie grass when Schenectady was settled and developing.

While we all appreciate the importance of naming new streets, I would have hoped that the Gazette reporters and Opinion editors would ask more substantive questions such as, where are the plans to prevent the increased volume of traffic from traveling down Front St. into the Stockade. At a recent public meeting the Planning Commission and developers all were ok with requests for designs that would direct traffic exiting the Mohawk Harbor site out to Erie Blvd rather than down Front St.. These new plans seem to re-orient part of Front onto the Mohawk Harbor property and actually encourage drivers to use Front. Front St. is a long, straight, narrow, residential street with many pedestrians crossing it and is already subject to dangerous conditions because of speeding drivers trying to use it as a shortcut. In addition, it is an important route for fire and other emergency vehicles especially with all the one way streets in the Stockade.

Would the Gazette please follow up on the missing plans for the promised traffic mitigation on Front St and give the same attention to these potential problems as you are giving to Harborside Way vs Joseph Borrough Ennis Drive?

There is a lot of focus on naming new streets but not on traffic management and mitigation. The Planning Commission was supposed to include efforts to direct traffic out to Erie Blvd not down Front St. into a residential and pedestrian oriented neighborhood.

There is no mural. Is this one of the sloppiest examples of journalism ever? Do you even know what a mural is?

Wow. This is embarrassing for you. Who edits the Editorial page. A mural? There is no mural despite the sloppy, lazy reporting of your reporter who wrote the news story. There are decorative elements and sculpture, etc. but not a mural!
Great job!

Not sure if Tocker is being sarcastic but I think siphoning off business from other local businesses is as much of a concern as any. Local businesses don't seem worried. Even the new Marriott will take some wedding and meeting business. However, the casino should bring in more spending money from outside the county although Rush and their employees will get most of it, except for the hotel and meal taxes and annual required million$$ paid to the localities and school district which is nothing to sneeze at.

In NYS manslaughter requires intent to cause serious injury. I know this is an opinion piece but do some basic research before you make a point. Unless you believe it was obvious the officer set out to cause serous injury.

so the Times Union has photos of the Mohawk in the Stockade but the Schenctady paper of record doesn't? I am a loyal Gazette subscriber but you are trying my patience.

What's more amazing to me than the lies, is the lack of even awareness of how this is wrong. I hope Carl was quoted out of context, being nervous is an excuse for misleading people? Really? The lame brain reasoning behind these explanations is more worrisome than the actual act by the "accountant". I'm a Democrat and not happy.
