At least that's what they say about it anyway.


That is such a great area. I went to college there.

Schenectady was once know as the city that lights and hauls the world.
General Electric got its start here,as did the now defunct American Locomotive Company.
The Erie canal ran through the center of the city.The oldest part of the city,known as The Stockade, has houses dating back to the early 1700s and George Washington stayed here a couple of times.
Now ALCO is gone and the plant is being torn down for condos and GE goes in fits and spurts between hiring and laying off.

I was on the ten year plan but ran out of cash after three years. I did get my BA in History and learned that that peice of paper plus $2.38 will get you coffee and a hardroll while you go to work.

Kingston is the first capital of NY. Also, we have the burning of Kingston which they re-enact every year.
