  • Ontario St Cohoes, NY - Cohoes

    Only way to get there new GLOBAL FOUNDRIES Plant or the malls in Saratoga county by bus is to travel via Schenectady which would take one and half hours to go 12 miles. How can you get an job at a Rt 146 mall without a car?

  • 428 Saratoga Street Cohoes, New York - Cohoes

    CDTA operates Northway express buses that run from Saratoga County to Albany they run empty on the return trips. That means Northbound is empty in the AM and Southbound is empty in the PM. Some of these empty return buses could make a stop at EITHER Rt. 32 and Tibbits Ave OR Rt. 32 and 23rd St to pick up passengers for GLOBAL FOUNDRIES. The return buses current pass by these two intersections.
    Current there is no way to get there new GLOBAL FOUNDRIES Plant or the malls in Saratoga county by bus. How can you get a job at Rt. 146 malls or GLOBAL FOUNDRIES without a car?

  • 50 Willow St Cohoes, NY 12047, USA - Cohoes

    Residents of the Cohoes Hill neighborhood around the area of the Polish-American Association should not have to put up with the bar's music cranked up to volume 10 all night, vibrating everybody's houses and keeping people awake!

    We should also not have to put up with the loud, drunken people staggering out all over the place into the middle of the street and making noise until 1AM every single weekend!

    Not to mention all the drunk drivers who stumble out of the bar and then speed down the residential streets at 50 MPH as if they were racetracks!

    Plus, I'll bet at least 1/2 of the people getting in their cars after a night of boozing it up over there every weekend are repeat DWI's!!

    The other issue is that every Friday and Saturday night, the people who actually LIVE on this street have NO PLACE TO PARK because all the people who go to the bar take up every single parking space on the street!!!

    I LIVE HERE!!! I shouldn't have to park 4 blocks away because every drunk in the city is parked right in front of my doorstep!

    I understand that the Polish Association is a part of this community too, but I think that they and their patrons should be a little more considerate to the residents of this neighborhood who have to try to SLEEP at night!

  • Bridge St Cohoes, NY 12047, USA - Cohoes

    The Rail Road crossing is very rough almost bad enough to get stuck on.

  • 616-620 Saratoga St Cohoes, NY 12047, USA - Cohoes

    The stop light in front of Hot Dog Charlies is not needed. When it was blinking during the daytime, traffic was flowing so smooth. Take it out all together.

  • 12 White St Cohoes, NY 12047, USA - Cohoes

    The historic Cohoes Theater building at 12 White St. is going to be torn down this fall, unless we, the concerned citizens say, "NO!" and do something about it!

    This beautiful Art Deco-style movie house was built in 1941, and it would be a tragedy if we just let the City of Cohoes tear it down!

    I couldn't believe my ears when I heard it on the news!! I thought the City of Cohoes was trying to revitalize the Remsen/Ontario/Columbia St. area, and bring back some businesses to this historic town!

    Why would they want to tear down a building like this? It only needs relatively minor repairs (when compared with some of the other crumbling buildings around this area.)

    We have a few businesses slowly coming back to this city, (like the Bread and Jam Cafe for example), and I think it's small businesses like these that we need to help revitalize all these old, dilapidated towns in New York!! Why would we want to wreck our history like this by letting the Cohoes Theater fall to the wrecking-ball??

    We have to SAVE OUR HISTORIC BUILDINGS!!!

  • 112th St Troy, NY 12182, USA - Cohoes

    There are MANY lights out on the 112th St. Bridge.

    They need to be repaired. I would estimate approximately 75% of them are not working. This is a very poor reflection on the City of Troy.

  • Central Ave Cohoes, NY - Cohoes

    Central Ave in Cohoes is too narrow for parking on both sides, especially with comercial business trucks and equiptment parked on the street and sidewalks.

  • 86-98 Vliet St Cohoes, NY 12047, USA - Cohoes

    Vliet Street really needs to have center yellow lines painted on it along its entire length. Drivers constantly weaving around parked cars and speeding, agressive drivers make this street extremely dangerous as it is!

    It also needs proper "zebra-stripes" painted at the corner of Garner Street, so that pedestrians can cross the street safely.

    Not to mention the tremendous amount of children playing, and pedestrian traffic at the corner of Garner Street.

    You'd think this would have been done as part of whatever they just did when they dug up the entire street!

  • 216 Mohawk Street Cohoes, New York - Cohoes

    This intersection looks like the streets of New Delhi, India during rush hours when a train is crossing!

    Yesterday at 4:45PM, approximately 20-30 vehicles were waiting on each street at Mohawk St., Columbia St., Bridge Ave., Remsen St., and Cohoes Rd. for the train to cross.

    I was on Mohawk St. headed south. My vehicle was stopped and waiting for the train just like everyone else was. As soon as the train passed by, 5-6 cars peeled-out and violently passed me and 4 other cars on the left side of the road in order to make the left turn over the railroad crossing, in order to get to Interstate 787!

    The chaos and agressive road-rage that this intersection causes is intolerable! Someone is going to get killed here because of this horrific bottleneck which needs to be completely reconstructed NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THE TRAIN CROSSINGS IN COHOES HAVE BECOME A DANGEROUS TRAVEL NIGHTMARE!!!! FIX THEM NOW!!!!!!!!!!!! MAKE THESE DEATH TRAP ROADWAYS ONE-WAY STREETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 16-98 N Mohawk St Cohoes, NY 12047, USA - Cohoes

    This traffic light should be reprogrammed to flash after 10:00 PM. There's really not that much traffic here at night anyway.

    Many other intersections in Cohoes now have blinking lights at night and they work fine. Plus this is only a 3-way intersection, which makes it even easier.

  • 340 Vliet Blvd Cohoes, NY 12047, USA - Cohoes

    Vliet Street is completely disintegrated!
    The asphalt is crumbling, the drainage is horrendous, and the taxpayers and residents of this city DESERVE BETTER than to have the tires and suspension and steering of their cars constantly DAMAGED by this kind of neglect!
    I don't understand how a city can be so neglectful of the simplest part of its infrastructure: THE STREETS!!
    DEMAND BETTER FROM YOUR GOVERNMENT!!! REPAIR THESE CRUMBLING STREETS WE HAVE TO DRIVE ON EVERY DAY!!!!!
