A clock repair shop?

old clockAmy emails, hoping to help a friend:

Do you know of a good clock repair business in Albany? A good friend in Syracuse has a clock with lots of sentimental value that needs repaired, but she can't find any place in Syracuse to take it. She was hoping there is one in Albany. Thanks.

Have a suggestion for Amy and her friend? Please share!

"The Clock Works" is a clock repair shop on State Street in Schenectady! It is not in the downtown area, but further up the street closer to the Nisky border.

Try Waterford Clock in Waterford. I know a couple people who have been very pleased with work done there.

They're about 2 minutes up Rts. 4 & 32 from the north end of Rt. 787 in Cohoes.

Another vote for "The Clock Works" on State Street. They repaired an antique clock of mine six months ago and we've had zero problems with it. The price was quite reasonable. The work took a couple of weeks, but considering that the clock had been idle for a decade, I didn't mind waiting the better part of a month.

What about Karl's Klocks in Syracuse? They've been around forever.

I had a clock repaired at Waterford Clock. Overall a very good experience.

Thanks for the suggestions. She took it to Karl's Klocks last time and it worked for a year before it died again, so she doesn't want to go back. But the other two sound good.

... If anything, the city could be criticized for NOT influencing the construction or requirements to construct affordable housing into larger market rate projects. Take that one step further - affordable housing requirements on development aren't even considered as part of the city's first comprehensive zoning code overhaul since 1968.
