Amsterdam, NY

Like many upstate NY cities, Amsterdam has struggled to "find itself" in the post Erie Canal/Manufacturing era that defined much of the upstate NY area. As factories shut down, and the Erie Canal's usefulness as a commercial transportation link to the western part of ths state eroded, so has a great percentage of the states population.
Amsterdam still has a strong foundation of it's historical architecture in place, hopefully to be the cornerstone of the resurgence of this once prosperous city.
