Editorial: What a mess: Saratoga Springs Housing Authority seems to be out of touch with reality HERE
One of the biggest questions I’ve had since this whole Bugate began was the question of bedbugs in Jefferson and Vanderbilt Terrace. Jefferson Terrace and Vanderbilt Terrace will always have a special place in my heart. I was raised in 48 Jefferson St directly across from Jefferson Terrace. The Terrace was my playground and I would guess that the recollections of my childhood would be a little different than the idyllic memories of Public Safety Commissioner Christian Mathiesen who grew up on 5th Ave.He seems to think,drugs,alcohol and violence are something new in Saratoga. I would be happy to give him a history lesson sometime.
There was crime and drugs but also a neighborhood feel of the cities down trodden trying to build better lives. Many of my old friends are dead now, or in prison but many did quite well for themselves with our Mayor being the best example of Terrace kid makes good.
So it was with some concern when I took these photos of discarded mattresses in a dumpster at Vanderbilt terrace. Then I read this quote from the Saratogian
So since Ed Spychalski has proven himself to be an evasive liar we don’t know the truth. Somehow though I’ve got a feeling that the bedbugs in Stonequist Apartments are only half the equation.
