WELCOME TO SARATOGA... and to Welcome Home, your go-to guide for living in the Saratoga Region. Chris Vallone Bushee If this is your first time Managing Editor looking through Welcome Home, you will see that the entire guide book is color-coded, making it quick and easy to navigate your way through the pages. Are you looking for all the details on your local schools? No problem, turn to the ORANGE section. Do you need to contact your town's dog catcher or clerk? Browse the TEAL section. Is mom or dad getting older? Flip to the YELLOW pages for the best in Senior Care. But before you dig into the details, I recommend that you spend some time in the Dark BLUE pages 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!

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 beats out everything in the Northeast! Checkout our DINING GUIDE on pages 113-118. Bon appetite! So browse the book, mark your favorite pages, and enjoy life in our little corner of the world. And last but not least, if you have an idea for a category not listed in our guide, let us know and we will work on it in the 2016 edition of Welcome Home. Thank you for your support, and enjoy life in the Saratoga Region! Welcome to Saratoga, Chris

...The ArtsFestFridays, free and open to the public, will be supported by SaratogaArtsFest and produced by the production team at Spring Street Gallery, an awardwinning not-for-profit organization and performance space in Saratoga Springs. The programs for the fall are currently being developed, and the dates and locations for the initial four events have been confirmed—Sept. 4 at the Beekman Street Arts District; Oct. 2 at Universal Preservation Hall; Nov. 6 at the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College; and Dec. 4 at Home Made Theater. “Each ArtsFestFriday will be unique and exciting, occurring at a different venue,” said Sarno. “Each event will have its own theme and feature an eclectic mix of art, entertainment, and activities. The events will be multigenre, multi-generational, and always have an element of surprise.” Sarno added that a key goal of the gatherings is to announce and promote local arts programming on a monthly basis.

The two inaugural events, along with the producercurator teams, are outlined below: • “The Rich History of Beekman Street,” produced by Corey Aldrich (Electric City Couture), Cecilia FritelliLockwood (Textile Studio), and Belinda Colon (On Deck Saratoga). • “An Evening of Improvisation and Jazz at Universal Preservation Hall,” produced by Bob Carlton (Jet Pack Productions, rock musician), Dee Sarno (arts educator and advocate), and Carl Landa (composer, musician, and educator). Before moving to the new format in September, the ArtsFest will sponsor a series of events June 13–14 titled SaratogaArtsFest Celebrates the Saratoga Springs Centennial. The lineup for the weekend series will be announced in late April. This SaratogaArtsFest celebration will be among other civic events designed to mark the signing of the city’s charter in 1915.

Boasting agriculture as its main industry, a drive or bike tour through Charlton’s rolling hills reveals dairy and horse farms, orchards and farm stands just around the bend. Glimpses of the past abound: in the Historical Society’s museum and one-room schoolhouse, the general store, and lively Tavern—its former building serving as a stagecoach stop in 1787.

VILLAGE OF STILLWATER

Centrally located between Saratoga Springs and Clifton Park along the Hudson River, this beautiful and historic community is known as “The Site of the Turning Point of the American Revolution.” The Battle of Freeman’s Farm and the Battle of Bemis Heights were fought here in 1777, paved the way for freedom and set the stage for settlement of this community along the banks of the mighty and noble Hudson River.

SARATOGA FARMERS’ MARKETS Saratoga Farmers’ Market was voted #1 favorite market in New York State in 2012, the second year in a row it’s won that award. 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 Lincoln Bath 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 90 

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.

Amy and David Strauss’ stunning home is quintessentially Saratoga with its beautiful porches and stately presence on coveted Fifth Avenue, just one block from the Saratoga Race Course.

  WELCOME HOME | 2015

saratogaTODAYnewspaper.com


The before pics of the butler’s pantry are scary at best. Luckily,

Amy and David had the vision to restore it instead of just tearing it out or starting from scratch. They also opened up the wall to the left, so the beautiful built-ins and the couple’s pretty glassware can be seen from the kitchen and dining area.

The Saratoga Porch

is a somewhat ubiquitous and desirable feature in this town known for its Victorian and turn-of-thecentury homes. The Strauss’ got that in spades when they purchased 26 Fifth Avenue in 2008, with its three generous porches. However, the home, built in 1902, was in need of a serious face-lift. It was a long labor of love; they had to take the place down to the studs, since the horse hair and newspaper insulation was not exactly efficient or safe. The couple tried to maintain and restore as much of the original woodwork and architectural features they could, but gutted the old kitchen and bathrooms, which had been redone several years prior. With virtually nothing left of the original kitchen to restore, they opened it up to the butler’s pantry and informal dining area and pretty much started from scratch.

sale in Glens Falls and the painting of Ball Jars is by a favorite artist. They are always on the hunt for cool salvaged pieces and unusual antiques, which they blend with more traditional pieces. The home now has a beautiful, layered feel, lending it quiet sophistication and personality.

The antique wall clock was made by David’s

great-grandfather and the cool iron day bed is an eclectic feature in the cozy living area.

Amy and David are not design pros, but when their general contractor suddenly quit mid-job, they decided to manage the rest of the restoration themselves. Since David works full-time, the day-to-day chaos of restoration fell largely on Amy, who seemed to take it all in stride. The end result is impressive. From the butler’s pantry, that was dismantled, painstakingly re-finished,and re-assembled, to the beautiful kitchen that maintains a classic aesthetic but now accommodates a modern lifestyle, the house is beautiful and grand but comfortable. Like some of the other “grand Dames” in town (as I call those big, old homes with rooms and rooms of formal, and now somewhat useless space), this house was built for a different time, with different social customs, but is now restored and renovated for a new age of Saratoga living.

The old laundry room is now a lovely bathroom.

The metal doctor’s cabinet was a score from David’s old Navy days. Several of these pieces were on the way to the dump and he snagged it before it was taken away. What a save!

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. Concord’s accomplishments have been featured in numerous industry and national publications and have
