Welcome to Saratoga! ...and to Welcome Home, your go-to guide for Living in the Saratoga Region! Whether you’re contemplating relocating to the Saratoga area (does anybody think twice?!) or you’ve been here for years, Saratoga TODAY has put together everything you need to know in one handy informative community guide… after all, providing local news is what we do best! If this is your first time looking through Welcome Home, you will see that the entire magazine is color-coded, making it quick and easy to navigate your way through the pages. • Interested In finding out about the school district in your area? No problem, turn to the PUBLIC SCHOOLS section. • Would you like the phone number to your local library or town clerk? Browse the TOWNS OF SARATOGA COUNTY section. • Is mom or dad getting older and you’re looking for resources in the area? Flip to the SENIOR CARE section. • New to the area and looking for running clubs, yoga studios or healthy places to shop? Check out the HEALTHY SARATOGA section. • Entertaining friends and looking for a new restaurant? Check out our LOCAL DINING GUIDE • Need a groomer for your newly rescued dog? We have a PET SECTION too! But before you dig into the details, I recommend that you spend some time in the COMMUNITY DEMOGRAPHICS section in the front of the magazine and find out what makes our county tick.

Did you know Saratoga County is the fastest growing county in NY? Yes it is, and for good reason… With a low crime rate, a high quality of life and world class entertainment options… Saratoga is the place to be! (flip the page to hear what others think!)

Stop here first!

We proudly boast the oldest continuously run thoroughbred race course in the nation as well as world-class polo. If entertainment and dining are your thing, then look no further… Stop by the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, aka SPAC, to check out some of today’s hottest stars, best ballets and a classical season second to none. And the culinary scene is the best north of Manhattan! So browse the book, mark your favorite pages, and enjoy life in our little corner of the world.

Community spirit!

We hope you enjoy this issue and I must close with a thank you to our advertisers… Without them, we wouldn’t be able to provide these beautiful publications, free of charge, to our thousands of readers. Please, mention us by name when visiting them. …and a special THANK YOU to our photographers who have given me the perfect way to portray what this area is all about. They are listed by name on page 12. And last but not least, if you have an idea for a category not listed in our guide, let me know and we will include it in the 2017 edition of Welcome Home.

Tons of things to do!

Enjoy life in the Saratoga Region!

SARATOGA FARMERS’ MARKETS The Saratoga Springs Farmers’ Market is a great year-round place to find fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade baked goods, local meat and dairy products and so much more. The market started in 1978 as a small group of vendors in a parking lot and has since grown to more than 50 vendors. Last year, the market was named the best in the state for medium-sized markets, and second-best in the country! Supporting local business is very important to the communities in Saratoga County, something that is especially true of the local farmers’ market. All of the vendors and their products must be produced locally (from within Saratoga, Schenectady, Washington and Rensselaer counties). As is stated on the market’s website, this means that when you shop at the market, you are buying unique products and supporting our community and our economy. The only exception to the “only local” rule is fresh Long Island-caught fish. From May to October, the farmers’ market is outdoors on High Rock Ave. in downtown Saratoga Springs. Shop outdoors and under the High Rock Pavilion two days a week: on Wednesday from 3-6 p.m. and then Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. You’ll find an incredible assortment of fruits, vegetables, herbs, locally-made dressings, jams, sauces, crafts, baked goods and dairy products in addition to local plants for your garden. There’s nothing better than fresh local veggies in the winter–here-in Saratoga Springs, you can taste that freshness all year-long! From November to April, the farmers’ market moves indoors to The Lincoln Baths in Saratoga Springs State Park. The market is open each Saturday from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. The winter market is famous for its variety. You’ll find organically-grown winter veggies (including salad greens and tomatoes), meat, fish, cheese, yogurt, milk, honey, jam, pickles, organic soaps and much, much more! Plus, vendors offer ready-made foods so you can enjoy a breakfast sandwich or cider doughnut while you shop. There’s much more to the Saratoga Springs Farmers’ Market experience than grocery shopping. This lively market is also a great place to meet friends, connect with your community and enjoy entertainment and family-friendly events. From chef demonstrations to live music, there’s always something fun happening at the market. Stop by and check it out! For more information, visit www.saratogafarmersmarket.org. Plus, check out Saratoga TODAY’s food page each week for recipes straight from the farmers’ market.

What LOCALS know about

Saratoga...

Thank you to the guys at SARATOGA TOURS for your help!

Yes, Saratoga has a lake… Head East on Union Ave. (Past the track) You can’t miss it. Route 9N heads North towards Corinth, Route 9P goes around Saratoga Lake The City of Saratoga Springs is a 28 square mile area (5th largest in NYS) and a population of 28,000. The City of Saratoga Springs is usually defined by the Broadway business district as its main draw to visitors.

IF YOU GO TO The Saratoga Casino and Raceway is a casino, but not THE Casino… CONGRESS PARK, TO When locals say “The Casino” CHECK OUT they are most likely referring to THE CASINO the Canfield Casino in (WHICH I Congress Park, which hosts the HIGHLY most sought-after events and RECOMMEND!) contains the Saratoga Springs DON’T FEED History Museum upstairs. THE DUCKS.

HARNESS TRACK VS. FLAT TRACK... THE LOCALS CALL THE SARATOGA RACE COURSE, “THE FLAT TRACK” AND THE SARATOGA CASINO AND RACEWAY, “THE HARNESS TRACK”

Why is it called CIRCULAR Street?

Circular Street was being designed and built by John Clarke (owner Why is it called of the Congress Spring, he was responsible LAKE Avenue? for bottling the waters) at a time when Lake Avenue used all streets in the country were straight. to go to the lake He acquired land to make the part we see by angling over today from Lake to Broadway and wanted past Yaddo, but to wrap his road around the city, but as then the road was he ventured onto the West Side he found straightened and people not willing to sell land to complete Henning now diverts the “circle” shape. Therefore interesting toward the lake. name ....but less than perfect shape.

Route 29 heads EAST/ WEST and Route 9 heads NORTH SOUTH 100 

Why is it called CHURCH Street?

Church Street used to have many churches.....most over time burned or moved. The Stewart’s Shop on Church St. is on the location of one of those churches.

Gavin Park, Wilton, NY www.townofwilton.com (518) 584-9455 WILTON RECREATION CAMP AT GAVIN PARK

Wilton Recreation offers a full-day Summer Camp Program for children entering 1st through 9th grade, which runs from 9a.m. to 3p.m., June 28th through August 12th. Our camp offers a fun-filled schedule of daily onsite activities, themed events, as well as exciting trips for those campers registered for off-site adventures. Daily onsite activities include arts and crafts, sports, playground fun, and other organized group games. This year’s scheduled field trips include: Fun Spot, Saratoga Country Fair, Magic Forest, and at least two swimming days per week at nearby pools and beaches and much more (trips are based on space and availability). Campers may also register for swim trips only, which means they will enjoy onsite fun for three days and join off-site campers twice per week. As per State Health Department regulations, the camp provides certified lifeguards that

travel with the groups. These lifeguards supervise the swimmers in conjunction with the State Park Lifeguards and facility usage lifeguards. All campers registered for swimming and water trips are swim tested. Campers are then partnered with, and swim near, a fellow camper who has the same swimming ability. Once waterside, camp staff members conduct buddy checks every 15 minutes (campers leave the water and report to their counselors). All staff members stand in and around water during swimming activities to assist with supervision.

enovations are hard, but building a new home can be even more stressful. There’s no existing foundation or building to work off of. Virtually everything needs a decision, from windows to flooring to fixtures. And the timing? It always seems to take longer than you think, because one tiny thing can hold up everything else. One subcontractor’s sick day can slow down production by weeks. In other words, it’s not all decorating and fun meetings with architects- the process can be grueling and tedious. However, Mark Hogan and Rob Saba claim their experience building their custom dream home was easy, painless, and- gasp!- actually done within six months (it also had to be ready for the 2009 Parade of Homes, so the timing was extra crucial for their builder as well). 2016 | WELCOME HOME

Mark and Rob chose their coastalinspired, cottage-style home plan from one of Maine Coastal Cottages stock plans, then worked with local builder, John Witt, to customize the home to meet all of their needs. Even though the cozy- looking cottage grew from a fairly modest 1,900 square feet to a much roomier 2,900 square feet, it sits on its urban Saratoga lot beautifully, without looking crowded or too conspicuous. “We chose Park Alley because

we loved its location and its proximity to both

downtown and Skidmore College. We also liked the mix of homes that you find over in this area

ranging from mansions to modest bungalows. Park Alley is an

eclectic mix of homes and we felt if we were going to try and pull this [coastal cottage] style home off in Saratoga, this would be

the place to do it”, says Mark. Plus, the couple loves the fact that their new home is so close to downtown, so they can really take advantage of Saratoga’s “walkable” city lifestyle (one of my top

reasons for living in this town as well). “We love parking our car in the driveway when we get home from work on Friday night and

not getting back into it until Monday morning. We walk downtown with our golden retriever, Jameson, every weekend, to the

farmers’ market on Saturday mornings, and out to dinner multiple times a week.”

When “starting from scratch”, so to speak, one of the most overwhelming decisions can be choosing the design and style of your home. There are so many options! How do you even

begin to narrow it down? For Mark and Rob, it was inspiration from a movie that became the basis for

their dream home- Diane Keaton’s Hamptons home in “Something’s Gotta Give”. Their previous house had been more Ralph Lauren influenced, which

they loved, but with their affinity for the ocean (they

travel to Nantucket and Maine whenever they get the chance), this time around they chose to use a very

calming, cool palette and contrasting natural textures that reminded them more of the coast.

According to Mark and Rob, this style of

home was uncharted territory for their builder, John Witt, but the results show that Witt had no problem adapting. With Witt’s signature

custom built-ins featured throughout the house, the place is soothing and charming. Mark

and Rob wanted something uncluttered but

welcoming, and the result is exactly that. They even included a small apartment for their son, Christian, which includes a stunning custom

kitchenette and living area, as well as a small bedroom with a built-in bed that makes the

room reminiscent of a ship’s cabin. What kid would want to leave with digs like these?

Rob and Mark’s Best Pieces of Advice for Anyone Considering Building: ◊ Our advice would be less is

more. Don’t build more house than you need or will actually “live in”. We would trade size

for quality any day of the week. ◊ Make sure you surround

yourself with talented people. Even though Rob and I, and more-so Rob, have a knack

for design and decorating, our

home would never have turned

out as well as it did had we not had the collaboration of John

Witt and Beverly Tracy and their team working with us on this

project. We couldn’t have done it without them!

◊ And lastly, we’d say build a home that will stand the

test of time. We tried to build

this home in a way that years

down the road someone would have no idea when it was

constructed. During the Parade of Homes (in 2009), a woman

viewing our home commented

on what an amazing renovation job this was. Rob and I just smiled with pride. We had accomplished our goal.

Magical Backyards

Photos by Paul Castle ARE YOU READY to slide into a warm water abyss in your own backyard? If the answer is 'Yes', we have good news for you. The experts at Concord Pools & Spas, the Capital Region’s largest in-ground swimming pool builder, can make resort-style living a reality. In their 44 years in operation, Concord Pools has installed more than 10,000 pools in the Capital Region as far south as Kingston, and well into Massachusetts and Vermont. From the simplest to the most complex designs, Concord Pools works to turn dreams into reality. Whether it’s a negative edge pool cantilevered off the edge of an extreme slope, a free-form pool with custom concrete accents or anything in between, when clients hire Concord Pools, they know the end result will be something beautiful. Concord Pools does a lot more than install amazing pools. They do the designing, building and servicing of spas and saunas, outdoor renovations, safety covers, pool openings and closings. They will help you create an entire outdoor entertainment environment. An integrated design approach incorporates custom water features, landscaped slides, custom stairs and benches around deluxe outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and outdoor living rooms to create your own unique personal backyard oasis.

136 

  WELCOME HOME | 2016

Behind the fantasy is the strength of an innovative and award-winning company. Concord Pools was the first to pioneer the use of radiant heat in swimming pools. A radiant heating system utilizes a modulating boiler and PEX tubing in the concrete floor of the pool. The result is an incredibly efficient source of heat for a swimming pool. Concord Pools was also one of the first companies to perfect construction techniques for negative edge vinyl-lined pools. Their patented I-Beam brace system is like no other brace in the industry and supports pool decking from settling and shifting.

This project was an entry in the Showcase of Homes last fall. This negative edge pool was cantilevered off the edge of an extreme slope. Over 450 tons of material was brought in to create the platform for this project. The resulting pool is a beautiful blend of natural stone, stamped concrete and natural elements with a breathtaking view. saratogaTODAYnewspaper.com


Concord’s accomplishments have been featured in numerous industry and national publications and have received multiple national and regional awards. They were voted one of the “Top Three” pool companies in America by Pool and Spa News, they are a seven time recipient of the coveted Master of Design Award and were voted a lifetime member of the AQUA 100 Hall of Fame by AQUA Magazine. On a local level they also won first place in the 2014 Saratoga County Showcase of Homes.

The time is now to start building the backyard of your dreams.

This project boasts a spectacular outdoor space with a free-form pool design. A natural stone landscape custom slide with adjoining spillover spa are the focal point of this design. The large patio area is done in a premium paver including a natural stone fire pit.
