I say it is just okay not because of the lack of jobs but the conditions. Downtown Schenectady has now many jobs and technological companies moving in. But for the other side, we have Wal-Mart in Rotterdam, and a bunch of smaller places to work. I had worked at Moe's during highschool to pay for some of my college education, and I know that everyone that worked in that plaza was disgruntled over their low wages. We need some family companies that respect their workers to come in, like Hobby Lobby, or Kroger. I have done much research on the companies that really make their employees feel appreciated, and it goes a long way.

The local businesses in that area, Mont Pleasant, are pretty worn down. They need inside and outside renovations, and I think it would attract a lot more people. Just over the bridge we have a Hannaford Plaza of Rotterdam, and everything in that plaza is older and the plaza owner needs to invest in his property. The plaza has lost Fashion Bug, Hallmark, Hollywood Video, Papa Johns, Scarboroughs, and other tenants. This whole are from Schenectady to Rotterdam needs a face lift.
I love the weather around here. It gets pretty hot in the summer, usually hovering in the 80's, which is perfect for outdoor activities and swimming. I love the Spring and Fall, they are the perfect temperatures with jackets and beautiful sights. Winter there is snow and its cold, which I love. I love how each season is very different, and there's a distinct change in the weather during each of them.
