City GuideSchenectady
Albany may get the glory of being the capital, and Manhattan may get all the fame but there is one New York city that has history, fame, and a few reasons to toot its own horn.

Schenectady holds its own baton in the race of amazing New York cities. It has been the residence of Kurt Vonnegut (and the basis for many of his books), Union College (totally liberal arts, totally laid back), the birthplace of GE (which gave it the nickname “Electric City”) and it is home to NY’s first historic district (Stockade). Need a bit more convincing? Ever wonder where all the money in NY lies? We know it’s not Wall Street, so where can it be? Schenectady, of course, is the place to claim your NY lottery winnings. Remember the sassy maid from the Brady Bunch? Yeah, she is one of Schenectady’s own. It is also a town where vaudeville was once king (the historic Proctor Theatre still remains) and it’s where Babs filmed The Way We Were. Schenectady may fly under the radar but it’s a star in every sense of the word. Let’s find you a spot to live in the “place beyond the pines.”

Settling into Schenectady - The Neighborhoods:

Part of the “Capital District,” Schenectady has long been considered an all-in-one city. Everything you need is located here, no matter in which end of the city you choose to live. While some areas are a bit more historic and some are a bit more suburban, there is no bad spot to land in Schenectady. Whether you are here for college or to start life in Eastern New York, there is a place for you. Just be sure to bring your winter gear…a love of history and arts wouldn’t hurt either.

North Side

This part of town is a bit suburban, middle/upper middle class. The single family homes here are often old colonials and filled with families, seniors, and young couples too. People flock here for the good schools, friendly neighborhoods, and pretty streets. Apartment living offers great options to North Side residents as it combines the Americana coziness with lower expenses. The North Side is on the bus-line, providing great public transportation options but it is also close to major highways for those with their own set of wheels. Many apartments include water/heat in the rental price and offer garages (to shield your car from the harsh winter), fitness centers, and pools. Close to shopping, eateries, the GE plot and local colleges, living here is practical and affordable (1 bedroom/$705). $$-$$$

Eastern Schenectady/Eastern Avenue

A walkable part of town, the eastern part of Schenectady is minutes from Albany. Home to families, college students (Union Street located here) and residents of mixed ages, this end of town offers a safe neighborhood, proximity to major highways (5, 146, 90) and local colleges. Full of great eateries, bars, and the gamut of city activities, this is a coveted part of town. Apartment living often features washers and dryers, gas and heat included, and balconies/patios. Traveling with a cat? You’re in luck! Many apartments around welcome feline friends. How much will all this fun set you back? No worries, you can score a two bedroom/one bath for about $875. Scratching posts extra. $$-$$$$

Downtown

Where can you find affordable rent, proximity to Union College, hiking/biking trails and awesome nightlife? Look no further than Downtown. Schenectady’s downtown area is being completely restored with a new movie theatre, YMCA, shops, loft housing and so on… but the apartments that exist here now are perfectly acceptable. In fact, the area is highly coveted by college students and young professionals. The airport and Amtrak station are located nearby. The historic part of town (the Stockade is located here) and many of the single family homes have a lot of character and great back stories. Some of the streets in this area are so gorgeous that they are worth a stroll even if you live elesewhere. Bonus: sometimes throughout the year, garden tours are offered in Stockade. Great eateries and local shops are located down here as well. Apartments sometimes feature cable/internet included in the price of rent, new kitchens, and walkable distances to all things glorious. One bedroom apartments are $650 and up. $$-$$$

*There are other suburbs in the city (Bellevue, Vale and Hamilton Hill, etc.) but these tend to be much more suburban and apartments may be rented out areas of homes rather than complexes.

Shuffling Around Schenectady-Traffic and Other Things to Know

The CDTA is the city’s transit system which offers you the options to vanpool, carpool or hop on the bus. There are stops throughout the city and service will take you into Rotterdam, Albany and other neighboring cities. Amtrak also runs through the city. The Amtrak will be your key to NYC and beyond.

As for the road warriors out there, here are the major highways that will be your guide(s). The 90/890 will take you east/northwest toward Albany and Scotia. The 146 is a major thruway in Schenectady and will carry you into Rotterdam, connecting with the 7 (running north and south). The 5 becomes the Mohwak Turnpike and the NY State Thruway at various points. If you are heading into other major cities (Albany, Buffalo) this is your main road. Drive safely! Oh, and don’t text and drive. It’s illegal around these parts.

Whether you are looking for a laid back, liberal arts college to attend in hopes of finding your inner disenfranchisement or simply want to move into the open air, friendly neighborhoods that eastern New York has to offer, Schenectady welcomes you. The history here speaks for itself but what happens in the future is entirely up to you. You’ll catch an exhibit, you’ll picnic in Central Park (yes, there is another one…just like the first one), you’ll golf (disc golf for you non-country club types) and brave cold winters. In Schenectady, you will do it all…and then some.

August 2019 Schenectady Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Schenectady Rent Report. Schenectady rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Schenectady rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Schenectady rents decline sharply over the past month

Schenectady rents have declined 1.1% over the past month, but have been relatively flat at 0.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Schenectady stand at $830 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,021 for a two-bedroom. Schenectady's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.0%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Schenectady rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    Rent growth in Schenectady has been relatively stable over the past year - some other large cities have seen more substantial increases. Schenectady is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Schenectady's median two-bedroom rent of $1,021 is below the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the stagnant growth in Schenectady.
    • While rents in Schenectady remained moderately stable this year, similar cities saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Dallas (+2.1%), and DC (+1.7%); note that median 2BR rents in these cities go for $1,085, $1,134, and $1,578 respectively.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
