- Yes, the park with the fountains and monument at the top of State Street
Hill in Schenectady is called
Crescent Park! That's the spot that the FJG-Bullets needed to turn around
to head back to Gloversville.
As for the place in Amsterdam, I still see it referred to as Crescent Park
on some maps! I'd like to find
out if it was Mohawk Mills Park first or Crescent Park...

I have company records of cars handled from Fort Johnson to what we remember
as the Parkhurst Mill on Harrison Street on the Back line as well as over to
Amsterdam - must have been one of the companies on the west end. They also
hauled the coal to Tribes Hill and Johnstown. Why they did the long haul to
Johnstown is probably because it is six of one half dozen of another. They
ran the engine down to Fort Johnson, may as well handle a car or two in the
Wish I could put my hand on those papers. Gino, didn't I put something on
here many months ago with car initials and numbers and dates?
