What Renters Like and Dislike About Union Street Schenectady

We have a local restaurant and bar where everyone knows everyone. Also love the tree lined streets. Very walkable area.

Both dug tho to see if he could get it to the ground in relevant time for his team!. The only way he was was that the game is a

Tree lined streets where neighbors like to walk at different times of the day. Have small groceryCoOp nearby to pick up things and restaurants and bars nearby.

I love living close enough to everyday conveniences but yet I feel like I have enough personal space for my house & yard.

there is a large shopping center at the heart of the neighborhood with most everything you could need. also, it is easily walkable to wherever you need to go.

Our neighborhood is kinda segregated off from the rest of the town by highways and other major roads. It tends to isolate us, but it also gives it a unique feel.
