Here is a guide of such neighborhoods in the area from the Albany Business Review: https://www.bizjournals.com/albany/n...-and-play.html

Are there some other neighborhoods that could have been included?

Yeah can't beat Center Square although downtown Troy is a close almost equivalent.

Berben and Wolff's is alright. Friendly staff but the food was eh in my opinion. Maybe because I don't like fake bacon lol.

I would move to the Stockade if it didn't flood every year lol.

Another quick thought: this article highlights a lot of why I think the Capital Region is a huge gem in the Northeast. You get the old architecture, proximity to Boston/NYC, walkable neighborhoods, and overall general safety. A lot of the smaller towns surrounding it feel like small town New England in many ways.

I think that people who enjoy the lifestyle of the northeast but don't want the cost of living that comes with it, the Capital Region is the best go to. Property prices are nothing compared to what you'd pay in other large nearby cities.

Because a lot of areas of the Capital Region cities are run down, it offers a blank slate to create exactly what you want.

Another thing the article highlights is that there is work already being done within these cities and that there are multiple areas to choose from in the area considering it size.

I know that it isn’t in the metro area, but Hudson is still pretty close and has its own scene. https://visithudsonny.com

I'm somewhat surprised that the Union Street corridor of Schenectady wasn't mentioned...
