The Mohawk Towpath Byway has a new visitor center located on the box office level of Proctor’s. Over 600,000 people spend time in this area as they enter the Theater or wait for the “doors to open”. This high traffic area near the western gateway of the Byway is an excellent place to get the Byway’s message across. Maureen Gebert and I appeared on Ann Parillo’s “Schenectady Today” show on July 26 to publicize the new feature on the Byway. If you missed the live broadcast today on cable channel 18 click here to see the video. The program will also be aired on Albany, Saratoga/Clifton Park, Troy (Regional) – Time Warner Cable – Channel 18 – Tuesday August 2 at 3 pm and Bethlehem/Delmar Channel 18 on Wednesday, August 3 at 2:30 PM.
As Maureen Gebert points out during the program the Visitor Center is still a work in progress. Work on the lighting, the retractable stage and the exhibits continues, but it’s a wonderful place to start your visit to the Mohawk Towpath Byway.
We were invited back on the “Schenectady Today” show on September 20 to talk more about the Byway and the rich heritage that we can experience right in our own back yards.
Thank Maureen Gebert for the opportunity to tell the story of the Mohawk Towpath Byway and thank you to Ann Parillo and the entire “Schenectady Today” crew for the hospitality.
