So, for the second day in a row, our local paper has written and published articles casting Troy in a rather nasty light. Way to help us bring customers into town, Times Union! We all thank you!
Monday's article can be found here. I'd just like to say that the shopping day he's referring to here was the day after Christmas and we just so happened to have suffered through an ice storm that day. Nothing says prime outdoor shopping like a sleet shower!!!
Today's article can be found here. The "renaissance" here was booming for the last several months despite the economy. We all worked hard to encourage people to shop in Troy and for the first time in ages, we all heard people talking about how proud they were to turn their backs on the malls and shop in local, downtown districts. All of that hard work is out the window now. The second you use the word "unsafe" to describe any shopping area, people run like wild.
Yeesh, it's going to be a long winter.
