What Bert Has To Say About Albany-Schenectady-Troy Metro Area

The Albany area includes six counties, the cities of Troy and Schenectady and the historic Saratoga Springs area to the north. An assortment of commercial and state government activities support this state capital. Downtown Albany area is modern with a number of historic sites and an attractive waterfront. Suburbs are fairly nondescript. There is an assortment of mostly small arts and cultural amenities throughout the metropolitan area. Schenectady is an older industrial center known once for producing railroad locomotives and known past and present as a major center for the General Electric Company.
