City growth between 1990 & 2000: Skidmore Saratoga Study Group

The Saratoga Study Group at Skidmore College shows reports that the largest population growth between the 1990 and 2000 census' was in the suburban regions surrounding the city. Geyser Crest and the parts of the city between West Ave and the Northway showed population declines during this period, as shown in the map below.

The Skidmore Saratoga Study Group has a lot of valuable information about the city.

Another intriguing resource on the Skidmore College website is a the old Skidmore Campus on Union Avenue. It's fascinating to observe how all the old campus buildings, spreading out between Circular Street and Nelson Avenue, have been put to new uses. The exception, of course, is the Empire State Collge campus at the intersection of Union Avenue and Circular Street.
