To the OP, are you open to a private Pre-K?
No problem, just wondering what your personal experience is in these towns? You were recommending towns that seem dumpy and have no experience living there. I just wonder why you do that?

I was just stating which communities had Pre-K, which is something that the OP actually mentioned. I wouldn't call the South Colonie or Ravena areas "dumpy". With the others, yes, they are more blue collar. That may or may not be an issue, as those communities also have character and fit the aspect of being able to walk to a Downtown. Cohoes is actually going through a bit of a revitalization as well, with the opening of its Music Hall and new apartments in recent years. So, that could appeal to the OP.

Do you have experience living in any of them? Why suggest an area without Pre-K or a Downtown to walk to?

I lived in Queensbury for about 6 months, and I was in those areas weekly. You say blue collar, which is fine, but I think its just a nice way to say dumpy. Maybe they have improved, but about 5 years ago, they were pretty slummy.

To be 100% fair though, I have heard a lot of people recently in the NYC metro talk about moving to the Capital Region. I'm also noticing a lot more activity on this board in recent weeks. I think DeBlasio's NYC is starting to change, gun violence is sky-high right now, and I'm hearing tons and tons of people looking to move.

75% are looking to move South, I'd venture to say. But some will never, ever leave NY for southern states. They still think its Jethro and Jim Bob running things- perhaps in some places it is. So, I think the Cap Region is the next logical place to live with city amenities.

Sure, but this doesn't help the OP at all.

OP, here is some information about Cohoes, as there seems to be a push to attract some people while it going through a degree of revitalization: Cohoes Music Hall | C-R Productions | Cohoes Music Hall | C-R Productions | Cohoes, NY

Albany Apartments for Rent | Pet Friendly, Corporate Rentals, Upscale Amenities

Cohoes, NY Directory | Tourist Attractions | Shopping | Dining | Entertainment | Albany | Cohoes | New York | NY

Downtown Cohoes is on the rise - Times Union

Stop playing games. You asked me a question, and I answered it. Don't be a jerk.

You answered one question and I was referring to the rest of the post. Again, assuming things......

So will you.

Back to the topic, what would you suggest besides Clifton Park?

I have no idea. Whatever I say will be met with reasons why not. It doesn't matter.

You take this one and run with it.

I'm trying to get back to the thread instead entertaining your personal vendetta or whatever it is with me.

So, can we try this again and help the OP?
