What excites you about Schenectady?
What excites me about Schenectady is its remarkable progression and direction. Having moved to the area as a young teenager in 1977, particularly in Hamilton Hill, and residing on the upper north-side near the Central Park Rose Garden since 1997, I deeply appreciate the beauty and charm of my neighborhood and community. Engaging in regular jogging, walking, and running allows me to fully embrace the city's allure. Moreover, I find joy in the cultural richness of the festivals and community events, as they are genuinely culturally responsive and inclusive, fostering a vibrant and interconnected community.
