Amsterdam’s International Food Festival


The Amsterdam Lions Club sponsored an International Food Festival at Riverlink Park today. Vendors from Amsterdam’s different ethnic groups served food representing their home countries. Of course I am partial to the delicious Spring Rolls handmade by our hard working Chinese community. NYS Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara also enjoyed them. Please try some at Parkfest tomorrow. The food was great, the waterski team from Scotia were also practicing in the Mohawk River at the park. Unfortunately I only caught the tail end of their practice.

The Greater Amsterdam Riverlink Park


A formal acknowledgement of accomplishment celebrating the conceptualization, design and implementation of Riverlink Park, is what the email invitation described. On Wednesday, August 20, 2013, at 11am, elected officials and representatives from local organizations celebrated the fruition of 30 years of planning and development resulting in Amsterdam, New York’s beautiful Riverlink Park.

Like proud parents seeing their child off to college, Congressman Paul Tonko and Amsterdam Mayor Ann Thane were beaming with smiles as they talked about the hard work involved in turning a brownfield contamination into the Jewel of the Mohawk River. Phase one and two of the park development are complete and soon phase three construction will begin. The third phase is the much debated curved pedestrian walkway that will span the Mohawk River as a park lined with benches, plantings, trees and pictographs describing the history of Amsterdam.
