From our Letters to the Editor today:
Prominent corner needs a facelift
I was thrilled to learn that the Wedgeway building on the corner of State and Erie is getting a much needed renovation.
It’s on such a prominent corner in the city and it’s a handsome building.
But every time I drive past its neighbor, the site of the old Nicholaus building, I shudder. On the Erie Boulevard side, we are greeted by a large non-distinct brick wall.
Considering that an architecturally beautiful building used to sit on this prominent corner in our city, it is a real letdown to see the current building.
Can someone commission a large mural on the side of this structure? It would certainly improve the sight of this gateway to downtown.

The newer architectural work Metroplex is bestowing on this city look like someone’s got a sweet contract with Home Depot.
It does not dignify the history of Schenectady.
Thank you for your letter, Mr. Butryn.
Agreed. Why not a mural painted based on what the view would have looked like if the Nicholaus building had survived?
