Create a "quality of life" law that enables the city to assume title of these properties, then auction them off. Developers will buy them, knock them down, and rebuild them. The city makes money, spends $0, and starts collecting taxes on Day 1.

Then create "property maintenance" laws that enable the city to take title of any title of any rental house thats considered an eyesore. Scores of rental homes are operated by out of town LLC's who do not care how the conditions of these homes affect the quality of life in Schenectady. Limit 2-Family Homes to two apartments, one per floor. Some of these traditional "double-deckers" are sub-divided into 4-6 apartments. Despite public safety issues, these homes overwhelm all public services.

Def a great old school Schenectady restaurant. Best wishes to the owners for a healthy retirement. I sure hope the eggplant sandwich remains as tasty!

Yeah Bob, back in 1941 these Liberals' forerunners, like FDR, were telling the Nation that Joe Stalin was a good man and deserved to be saved from the Nazi onslaught. Then during the late 1940's, some of these same liberals gave the Soviets our Atomic secrets because they thought the Soviet Union was the only hope for a Utopian World. After 1991, when the Soviet Union disbanded, Russian President Yeltsin released troves of Soviet documents which showed Senator Joe McCarthy was correct all along back in 1950's in what Liberals then called a "witch-hunt." Algier Hiss, the main Liberal Hero of the day, was in fact an agent of the KGB, the documents proved. But do the Liberals ever admit fault? No, they just leave a stinking pile of **** that the rest of us are now stuck with.

Downtown Schenectady is booming, but the rest of the city is in decay. No one at City Hall has a clue about saving Mt Pleasant, Goose Hill, or Bellvue. They're just letting Section 8 and absentee landlords destroy it. No one enforces zoning. No is protecting quality of life issues. The Democrats in our city are letting the Democrats in New York City use Schenectady as a dumping ground while they continue gentrifying Manhattan. And Brooklyn. Then Cuomo and Silver further screw us by not providing the extra money to deal with all the social ills they drop off on our doorstep!

Hmmn, I guess politically correctness comes before public safety when it comes to criminal descriptions of armed robbers?

Once again, this shows that justice in America depends on who you know. This person plead guilty to stealing $60000 over the course of 5 years, using 3 different methods. What does she get? 16 days in jail? Are u kidding me? Why would a DA agree to this? Is he friends with the lawyer? Does the felon's family have political connections? I don't know. But I do know that some kid with no connections and no money for a lawyer like Steve Kouray would be on a bus to Watertown right now for a 10 year stay. It's disgusting!

Mr. Higgins letter detailing the numerous crimes committed by NYC Democrats and their lack of serious prosecution, shines a light on the need for citizens to elect an Attorney General from the opposite party. Imagine the different results right now if there was a Republican State Attorney General? Instead we have one-party control and millions of dollars in theft at a time the State is laying off workers and cutting social programs. Gov. Cuomo came into town promising change but its now evident that Sheldon Silver is the real power and the corruption continues. Where is the F.B.I when we need them? Its obvious we cannot count on Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. He is from Silvers own Manhattan Democratic Club. The honchos of the State Police are appointed by the Democrats so they will not do their jobs either. As taxpayers, we are helpless while on our hard-earned pay is robbed by a political party that acts no different than an organized crime family.

Aw, don't hold Shelly Silver's anti-women views against him. He's an Orthodox Jew. This is what he's been raised to believe. That women count less than men. They treat women as possessions. In Brooklyn, the Hassidics have signs on the streets of Williamsburg that state in Hebrew "Women Must Step Aside And Let Men Pass." I kid you not! Google it. Orthodox women are treated much the same as the Taliban treat their women, minus the whippings. Orthodox women cannot have their legs or arms showing and must wear long dresses, children too. Orthodox women must also wear wigs so other men don't see their hair. Wigs stores abound in Orthodox neighborhoods. Once I was at Great Escape and little Orthodox girls where in the wave pool in full clothes instead enjoying it in a bathing suit like other children. Once I was in a City hotel and all the windows surrounding the pool where covered in paper. When I asked why I was told that there was a Orthodox wedding later in the day and this was to prevent their women from seeing men in bathing suits. To change the purpose of those post I'm sure I will be branded an "anti-semite" by someone trying to squash the truth and free speech. I have plenty of reform Jews I call friends, including the best man at my wedding. The facts are there. This is the 2nd time Silver has tried to prevent a rapist from getting his due. Boxley got probation and a $1000 fine only to collect $58K in back pay, after admitting he raped this woman. We all should be outraged!! How do we let this stuiff go on. Where are the liberal women when its a fellow liberal facilitating sexual abuse?

Uh, I think there's a MAJOR difference. I'm an American citizen. My children are American citizens. I pay taxes. When you enter this country illegally you are BREAKING THE LAW. When you don't pay taxes and work off the books you are BREAKING THE LAW. Under both of your theories less just away with our borders completely, right? Let whomever wants to conme here use all of our public services and education system for free until we have to lay off teachers because the districts ae going bankrupt. Oh, wait a minute, we're already there.
