I can go back a little further. The Rainbow Restaurant, next door to the brewery. I think where the retail shop is.
The Star Laundramat two doors down from the Grocery store on the corner of Court and Schyler (sp) St. The Circle Inn, on the other side of the Brewery Parking lot. Before the Rite-Aid was there, there was a car wash/gas station.
Levinson's Dentist in between Star Laundry and the Circle Inn. Suny College at the end of the Boiler Maker Race.(that big factory looking place.)
