Was there a few weeks ago and I won't go back. Absolutely nothing impressive regarding the food, and the walk up to roof top had an unpleasant odor - the whole way !

This is a very sad situation, obviously the system in place isn't working. Perhaps taking back the direction not only of the schools but the community is to be considered. How about a form of orphanage where the children have structure, meals, and a place to learn life skills and study habits. The parents similar situation and if they don't want to comply ok , but no welfare will be available either. These homes perhaps create jobs and possibly cost less then the welfare system to tax payers. Even if it was just a start to correct the system in place.
The current system appears to be only getting things worse. Just an idea.

Hey Gil! "that's nonsense" well how does the Union Inn get flooded then every time it rains??!! Maybe the lack of drainage system for the construction next door?! You are doing so much research here and for so many other projects why aren't you and others in the city stepping up for the Union Inn issue? I certainly reached out to you ! Because you know why! and maybe that property has an agenda to someone??!!

Thank you for this editorial!!! I asked and asked for the city and Maddalone/Rosenstien to look into this. Yes Harleysville insurance sent an adjuster, when he entered my basement and saw the amount of water, turned around and left. He did not wade through the water to the other end of basement to see just how much water we were taking in. He had seen enough. As owner of the Union Inn I am quite willing to share my engineer reports and other findings, that give way to where the water has come from. This doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out, but it does take responsibility. I am not frivolously making unfounded allegations for whatever reasons. Nor were we planning to close, but had some really awesome visions for the future of my building that I have never had the opportunity to initiate due the excess water and damages. There is nothing I would like more then to see the city and Maddalone/Rosenstien come forward and take responsibility for the disgraceful event. Creating legal fees and such aren't solving the inevitable.
Quite honestly I feel somewhat railroaded at this point.
I sincerely appreciate the objectivity and support of this editorial. I can be reached easily feel free to come forward with suggestions and or ideas on resolving the situation.

how about tax breaks for the other businesses who have been here for good and bad times? how about the residents tax breaks? How about metroplex and city taking care of businesses that are damaged by other businesses? Partnership is only for the chosen and is severly lacking obviously! and hopefully their staff wont be paying their payroll taxes ( as in bartenders giving 40% of tips to support staff, average is 10%) pay minimum wages thats why it is in place. Other then that wish them sincerely all the luck !

Well Mayor McCarthy maybe if you worked with businesses not just your pet projects people would not file bankruptcy. Remember people have their hard earned money invested. The city certainly allowed my property to be serverly damaged by not requiring the construction of Union TownHomes to put in a drainage system, which for everyone else is required. Mayor you are worried about it slowing down the process? how about how the feelings of the property owner? Work together?
Gym why not try it especially if it has other features to offer and I am sure the YMCA will be fine. You have excessive number of bars so why not two gyms.

Daily- yes lets check those rap sheets !! Your comments lack facts, and as far as underage I beg your pardon! We did more diligence then most of the bars in that area, and have had numerous checks by SLA and never once had ANY violations. Are the kids perfect - no but they do have hearts that take responsiblities and that's a whole lot more then I can say for the neighbor not taking responsibily for damaging my property and obviously I have proof!! Maybe Schenectady is part of the problem and happy to say their lives elsewhere are doing very well. Having just this past week spoke with an officer in Schenectady, he agrees they often got misunderstood and things weren't quite as it appears. How about when a patron tried to hit them with their beer bottle for not serving them when they had enough?? or when one son refused someone entrance with no ID. Kid told police over and over again that, no one bothered him at the bar but we were asked to close for the night. Your knowledge is very lacking in facts so please keep your personal opinions from seeing that someone has damaged our property and caused a whole lot more damage then my sons.

Let's remember 26 bars or 5 doesn't matter if there's water and mud structural damage from it that keeps the business from functioning. Per the city we put in a support wall and look at his sidewalk as it goes into the Union Inn's.
Perhaps Charles Rosenstein esq and Chtis Maddalone should have come and looked at the situation , that opportunity was available
