Schenectady, New York shares its metropolis with the state's capital city, Albany. With less than 100,000 residents, this town is home to more than just a curious name. Schenectady, which is a derivation from a Mohawk word meaning near the pines, is also the birthplace of General Electric. Thomas Edison relocated his Edison Machine Works to the city in 1887. About 5 years later, Schenectady became the residence of the General Electric Company. The introduction of GE transformed the town into a technological pioneer, as it hosted one of the premier commercial radio stations as well as the very first regular television broadcasts in the nation. The city today may not be the technological epicenter it was in the late 19th century, but it still has much to offer its residents and visitors. Central Park is the city's most acclaimed attraction, as it houses a famous rose garden, Iroquois Lake, as well as illustrious landscaping that was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the same man who designed the famous park in New York City that shares its name.1
