Whether you come to enjoy world class shows at Proctors or come to visit or study at Union College or Schenectady Community College, you can find fine dining, entertainment, shopping and nightlife in Schenectady.

Set along the Mohawk River, historic Schenectady, NY has wonderful bookstores on the Jay Street pedestrian mall, has a great Irish pub called "Pinhead Susans" and is home to GE where they bring "good things to life".
