SchenectadyNow recently renovated as a restaurant, this building was originally a single-story waiting room for the Schenectady Railway Company - a local trolley company.
Next - although I am no fan of casinos, the Rivers Casino and Resort rose from the ashes of the former ALCO plant and I was curious if there was any mention of the history of the location.
|this spot is called the Amphitheater|
|there are picnic tables and a green lawn (no trees tho'...)|
|the walk along the rivers edge was pleasant|
Sure enough... I was rewarded with a series of nicely done signage scattered around the park area!
For lunch I headed up to Ballston Spa and had a tasty burger and brew outside, at the old Chocolate Factory. On my trek back in December 2015, I documented the local electric railway and the interesting history of this mill complex.
Although it was cloudy and gray all morning, the sun came out during lunch and I felt a wee bit guilty for not biking but nevertheless, it was an interesting and productive trek!
