images of July 2020

Merely looking at the photos I took during July 2020, you wouldn’t know the month occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic. The scenes of the Stockade and Downtown Schenectady were as colorful, inspiring, and diverse, and occasionally as aggravating, as ever. The map at the right shows that the beautiful sunflowers seen above, street-side at 29 Front Street, are just a stone’s throw from the Riverside Park construction site of the often-dispiriting and disruptive new pump station project, until recently the site of a grand, century-old shade tree.

Take a leisurely stroll through July 2020 with this Slideshow. The photos were mostly taken while on my evening stroll from Cucumber Alley to Downtown Schenectady, often including scenes along the Mohawk River, State Street and Jay Street, and more.
