City must keep up its neighborhoods

City must keep up its neighborhoods

Gina Sauter, Scotia


What has happened to Crane Street? When I drive to my friend’s house on Crane Street, I see empty buildings, rundown homes and garbage littering yards and fouling the street.

The news reports from that neighbored are of rampant crime, including shootings and drug related arrests. People hang out at all hours of the day and night in front of stores. Groups of people walk in the street instead of using the sidewalk and even use the street as an area in which to congregate while blocking traffic flow.

Crane Street used to have the best bakeries. The White Eagle’s cream pies and Mont Pleasant Bakery’s bread and pastries had people lining up for the best, fresh baked goods.

Schenectady, take pride in all of your neighborhoods. Bring back the good things that Mont Pleasant, Bellevue, Goose Hill and the others used to be noted for. There’s nothing like the smell of fresh baking bread in the air -- so good -- and the sight of neatly kept lawns with flowers and trees. So beautiful.
