Front Street

This is in the oldest section of the city, it's called the Stockade, after the boundaries of the original stockade fortifications that protected the city. Of course, if you leave the gates open there isn't much protection. The French lead a raid from Canada to Schenectady and burnt the city in Feb 1690. The statue in the distance is Lawrence the Indian, who helped track the French after the massacre.

The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
