I have yet to hear a good reason for giving $500k to Galesi. That money can go further if applied to other projects. Why does Galesi suddenly need more money?

justapto - downtown events usually attract a big crowd. I'm sorry you're out of the loop! Call the Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corporation and tell them to improve their promoting of downtown Schenectady. They can afford it: they have a $500k budget.

re. "Liven up Schenectady with summer events" - um, does this writer know that there are two farmers markets every week in downtown Schenectady? Jazz on Jay every week during the summer? Other events to date: Pride Fest and Kids Art Fest. There was a weekly Art Night but there was a lack of community support and it fizzled. Support what's already going on and it can grow further.

one gets a sprinkler from a store. you don't need a yard to have a sprinkler. my neighbors' kids do fine with their sprinkler and they have no yard.

I wonder how many of the complainers are actually Schenectady taxpayers? I grew up in the suburbs. There was no public pool, and we had no private pool. Get a sprinkler.

She was manipulated? Doubtful: look at that come hither look she's giving the camera. And she stole $40k from public assistance! That's the real crime.

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.
