Perhaps they could use a nice sign with an arrow at the corner of Nott St that let's people know the restaurant is there....

How exactly would this new gym be different from the Y? The special nutrition line of products sounds interesting- would the product be made in Schdy? Office tenants would benefit from gym in own building -they would not have to go outside in bad weather- I suggest a wall of windows over State St where the stationary bikes can offer a nice view while working out-

the great puzzle is how to get the few rich people in area to part with their money while discouraging the majority who are poor and borderline middle class from gambling away money they cant afford to lose and making their personal and financial lives (and the city they live in) much worse..Saratoga attracts their wealthy from NYC and Southern Horse Owners- why would rich who have money to lose choose a Schdy Casino when they can go to Vegas or Aruba, Bahamas? I envision only people who shouldn't be gambling- going to Schdy casino and cant good for the City as a whole and taxpayers- the site would be better utilized for an nicer waterfront mall and mixed use office/so Schdy residents don't have to go all the way to Colonie Ctr or Crossgates and since Rotterdam mall is slowly shuttering- and give prof businesses more downtown options for their offices

Thanking a police officer for abusing his power with a full pension? easy way to retire early? Good grief- then you wonder why property taxes are so out of control? On top of high salaries, health, pensions, over time- taxpayers also get stuck with tab of having to pay while suspended and pay for their defense. People don't randomly dial 911 and claim a person is pointing a gun at them. Get real.

The 2 established parties in NY are corrupt. Our only hope for real change and accountability will come from electing a third party candidate - someone who is not controlled by big money and who is on the same down to earth level of the average working person in NY.
Howie Hawkins is that candidate. He is smart, articulate, knows the issues, has serious solutions and will work to stop your taxes from lining the pockets of wealthy connected politicians and will fight to limit the high salaries and excessive pensions of elected officials and administrative executives who only work part-time.

Bob, well said-
and I feel bad for you-good sleep is peace and health.
maybe its time you started playing some nice loud music of your own while you mow the lawn- perhaps some nice classical Mozart that could possibly permeate into and transform the brains of your rude neighbors while they sleep into decent ones....hang in there-

Does the county really need to waste money giving residents free cleaning supplies?
is that a joke? how about simply teaching them what it means to be clean, how to clean and have a dust free, and mildew/mold free, clutter free home?

The poor who are convicted of crimes are provided a public defender- so why is Bruno allowed to choose the most expensive lawyers paid with our tax dollars ?? Oh yeah- bec he is from the rich and connected side of America- Its disturbing that the jury found his "business practices" legal and its an outrage Senators are not required to work full-time 40 hrs and banned from any other 'second job" given their outrageous high salaries, pensions for themselves and spouses and best health benefits etc for their rest of their lives..

From: Editorial: Bruno’s request for reimbursement of legal fees is dubious

If the police actually have street camera footage of the house that was enough to release Butler, then that same footage will probably be enough to find the person who did it.
