Which block of Union is the article talking about?

Schenectady and Union?

Schenectady and Union?

Some people there have rent parties.
I used to live close to Schenectady and Union ( 1703 Union). I bought a hunting slingshot, broke some windows, heard some screams… that was the end of the music!

Which block?… If you live after Utica you can’t expect much

Perhaps Union near Schenectady?

I used to live at 1703 Union. Summertime Woes. At about the same time, Saturday night, in the Summer, on the Southeast side of Schenectady and Union Streets, were sitting, on a stoop, two teenagers with a big Boombox straddled across both of their knees. This racket didn’t stop even though it was 1 or 2 in the morning! The police arrived about 20 minutes after I called them. One of the offices exited the vehicle and went over to the two teenagers.

I don’t even live on Union street and even if I did I’m a very, very heavy sleeper and I probably would be at simchas beis hashieva by then. – Levi

The words in their music is extremely offensive and is a reflection of today’s “culture’but we must keep in mind that sometimes we are very discourteous and inconsiderate with the noise we make, whether it’s with kedushah intent or not, chas v’sholom.
