Lack of retail? Mr Hull told me he doesn't shop, so perhaps that is why he hasn't noticed that downtown does have retail. Struggling retail that is, in part because people assume the only store in downtown is The Open Door. We need a better residential base in downtown to support more retail, however there is an existing retail base, so quit saying we need more retail and support the businesses that are already there.

"'Les Miz' crowds a good problem for restaurants" would be a more accurate title. Did this reporter speak with retailers? Morris is misinformed; few folks stop in the shops when they are going to a show. Proctors is great for restaurants, but not retail.

too bad the students don't actually spend money in the community. they're told that Schenectady is unsafe, and they stay on campus or are bussed elsewhere. too bad the students think all Schenectadians are Schenectadroids.

Re. the closing of From Here to Antiquity - it sounds like the writer feels the Gazette is to blame for this store closing??? I don't think so, as the Gazette does a lot to support its community, and it really isn't the Gazette's responsibility to promote local business for free. In order for retail to survive it needs to have a strong residential base. Downtown Schenectady does not have a residential base that can support retail other than dollar and convenience stores.

Given Schenectady's population - sub-humans who breed like bunnies and don't take care of their children, themselves, or their surroundings, it's not surprising we have pet overpopulation issues. These sub-humans are also pet owners, and they don't have their pets fixed and they don't care for them properly, so subsequently it's their pets that end up in the shelters. The sub-humans living next door to me, who have had their children taken away and spend their days and nights partying and destroying surrounding property, were elated when their pit bull knocked up another dog. I can only imagine where those puppies are now. Pet ownership should be a privilege for those who are responsible.

Well said John Edward Bigelow! Treat others as you would like to be treated. Don't have to be a Christian to live by those words.
