About Schenectady, NY

Known as “The City that Lights and Hauls the World,” Schenectady, NY is the beautiful county seat of Schenectady County. Edison Electric Company (now known as General Electric) and the American Locomotive Company were the two prominent businesses that gave the city this name. From the late 1800s to today, Schenectady has been a booming transportation and manufacturing center. The area is also booming in terms of entertainment, with the addition of radio and television stations, theatres, and casinos.
