When everyone was dealing with the pandemic, especially restaurants, many cities came up with innovative ideas to keep the industry running. Cohoes created a brilliant plan to bring restaurants to the people. They started "Eat in the Street". Because it was so successful, they are continuing it this year.
There are thirty-seven acres that are slated to be sold in a prime area along Route 9/Loudon Road in Cohoes. It's a peculiar area because even though Oreshan Farm has been there for years, housing developments around it have been booming. There are plans to build more housing at that farm, but a lawsuit says, "not so fast".
With a new restaurant opening in Halfmoon, a neighborhood bar has closed its doors after 90 years. Joe's Tavern, which has been a staple at 16 Division Street in Cohoes for nearly nine decades just shut down. There is hope that someone will buy it and reopen but since February 18th, it is closed.
