What someone considering moving to my city should now is that it is small. It would also be beneficial for them to know that the housing is inexpensive. My city is a good place to raise children dependent upon which area you live in as well. The parks in my city have a big pool, rose garden, basketball courts and place for you to fish!

I am from Schenectady, once known as the “City of Lights” due to General Electric’s flagship plant being there. The city is trying to rehabilitate itself after years of neglect and poor leadership, and has made some progress. There are now several nice establishments in the downtown, including the historic and beautiful Proctor’s Theater.
