How about the neighborhood which still has many 300 year old stone houses! Yes, you read that right, 300 years! Or, how about a neighborhood that was expressly created for the “Wizards of GE”, in Schenectady. More engineering and science patents have come out of this neighborhood than any other I can think of. And the first lit houses in the city! Or how about an old Hudson River neighborhood filled with art galleries, exciting restaurants, great museums, wonderful festivals, and (drum roll, please) a place where you can take an original vintage streetcar ride to the edge of the Hudson River.
These are must-haves if you’re ever in town. Stop, walk around, and you’re sure to come away thinking, “Now that was fascinating!”
