Sounds Like a Headline from the Onion!

But it's a New York Times article: Union College Finally Admits Where It Is. I lived for 5 years in Troy, NY about 25km east of Schenectady and also in the Albany metro area when I was teaching at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I think that Troy is worse than Schenectady if anything. I first arrived there in March for an interview and the cab-ride from the railway station in Rensselaer (I came up from a conference in New York City) along the East Bank of the Hudson went through some of the worse parts of town, and the heaps of dirty snow all over the place and grey sky didn't add to the attraction!
