Schenectady Parks

Celebrate National Take A Walk in the Park Day in Schenectady Parks

National Take a Walk in the Park Day is on March 30 which means it's time to get out and get moving at one of Schenectady's inviting green spaces. Round up the family, call your friends and set a time to meet at any of our 25 city parks to spend a Saturday afternoon appreciating the gorgeous weather and beautiful nature views around Schenectady. Join our REALTORS® as we disconnect from our busy lives and reconnect with the world around us.

  1. 10th & Webster Park – 10th Ave. and Webster St., Schenectady, NY 12303
    Spend the day outdoors with your little ones at 10th & Webster Park. Located just a few feet from a friendly neighborhood full of Schenectady homes for sale, 10th & Webster Park has a fantastic playground that kids of all ages will enjoy.

Moving to Syracuse
If you're looking at Syracuse homes for sale, let us be the first to welcome you to our city with open arms. Our REALTORS® absolutely adore this beautiful area of New York and we are sure you will fall in love with it too. Maybe you've visited here before, or perhaps you're familiar with the talented academics and athletes of Syracuse University, but until you live here, you won't truly discover everything our fantastic town has to offer.

Here are 11 important things you need to know about moving to Syracuse.

  1. The city is bigger than the school.
    We're pretty proud of the students, faculty, and graduates of Syracuse University. Although we do take our college sports very seriously — good luck finding someone in town who doesn't cheer for the Orange — there's much more to our city than the school. With culture, history, food, nature and so many other wonderful reasons to love Syracuse, the University itself is just one of the highlights of Salt City.

Saratoga Springs Nightlife
Looking to spice up your night in Saratoga Springs? Take it from our REALTORS® — Saratoga Springs has plenty of bars, clubs, and restaurants that will keep you busy every night of the week. Grab some friends, call the babysitter and spend a night out at one of these six lively venues in town.

  1. Racing City Brewing Co. & Oliva Vineyards – 250 Excelsior Ave., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
    Whether you want an ice-cold pint of beer or a full-bodied glass of wine, Racing City Brewing Co. & Oliva Vineyards are prepared to help you quench your thirst. This family-owned establishment serves up classic styles of beer, aromatic glasses of wine and a compact menu of munchies that you'll want to sample.

Living in Albany NY
If you've been looking at Albany homes for sale, you're in for a treat. Our state's capital city is the perfect place for those who want to live a big-city lifestyle without the crowds and high costs. With a lively downtown, plenty of family-friendly outdoor space, and beautiful views of the iconic Empire State Building, this city truly offers something for everyone. 

Albany is also conveniently located. Area residents are just a short drive from New York City, New York State's Finger Lakes Wine Country, and the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts.

When our REALTORS® are showing houses in the area, they're often asked what they like best about living here. The list is pretty long, but the following six attractions always come out on top. 

  1. New York State Museum
    The 100,000 square-foot New York State Museum features both long-term and rotating exhibitions designed to appeal to visitors of all ages. Whether you're into art, science, or history, you'll love spending your free time at the museum.

    Some of the "don't-miss" attractions include a skeletal Mastodon, full-size 1900s carousel, and the hard-hitting displays exhibited in the World Trade Center gallery.
