Cohoes: A City on the Rise

Cohoes may not be the Capital of this great state of New York but we sure are putting ourselves on the map.  With the release of the Best of the Capital Region 2019 winners, Cohoes has many honorable mentions and a big win for our Cohoes Music Hall. But the greatest honor is being ranked one of the Top 5 best cities! It is no small feat but seeing that the Spindle City was ranked as New York’s fastest growing city two (2) consecutive years in a row and many top nominations of the Best of the Capital Region, this proves Cohoes is alive and well. 

“I think it says a lot about our city and the resurgence that we are seeing in our community overall, said Morse. People from all over are enthusiastic about the city of Cohoes and its amenities. From the Music Hall to our beautiful restaurants, the bike paths, the revitalization of our downtown and being centrally located is what people are recognizing about our beautiful city.  We’ve done a lot of work and have to have a lot of will power to continue every day to try to bring Cohoes back. I think people from all around the Capital Region see the success that Cohoes is having and they are very excited to be a part of that.”
