this town is a joke,it,s basicly a shadow of it,s former self.just take a look at this town ,and how it was 30 yrs ago and you,ll see that this town at one time was much better than it is today.

The biggest problem we have here in this town is with the village board,their the ones who decide what comes here and what doesn,t. i think it,s about time we get some new members ,and send the current board members on their way. it seems to me the only people besides the village board who are against the idea of a walmart here are the local store owners downtown. take a good look around they didn,t need walmart to run them outta here,half the shops downtown have already closed,and besides the fact we don,t want to spend our money there in their overpriced shops.

Saranac lake used to be a nice place. Now its mostly bars and no activities for kids anywhere. The winter carnival has even went down hill now its all money money.I will never return to that town.

I was raised in Gabriels NY but went to school in SL. I graduated in 1975. Love the Adirondacks but now when I go home about twice a yr, everything is changed. In my opinion SL changed with the 1980 Olympics. Not the nice downhome feel anymore

The dance studio is a good start. My daughters were sad when the M.I.M. studio went away. They always had fun there.
