    All the major companies (Verizon, Cingular, Sprint PCS, and T-Mobile) have good signal strength at WDW.

    Thanks for the information.

    Waterford is 10 miles north of Albany, and is the beginning of the Erie Canal.

    Waterford has 4 locks that raise the boats from the Hudson to the Mohawk. I love upstate NY except for the government.

    Words and Music By: William S. Allen

    I've got a mule,
    Her name is Sal,
    Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
    She's a good old worker
    And a good old pal,
    Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
    We've hauled some barges in our day
    Filled with lumber, coal and hay
    And ev'ry inch of the way I know
    From Albany to Buffalo.

    Low Bridge, ev'rybody down,
    For it's Low Bridge,
    We're coming to a town!
    You can always tell your neighbor,
    You can always tell your pal,
    If you've ever navigated
    On the Erie Canal.
    Low Bridge, ev'rybody down,
    For it's Low Bridge,
    We're coming to a town!
    You can always tell your neighbor,
    You can always tell your pal,
    If you've ever navigated
    On the Erie Canal.

    We better get along
    On our way, old gal,
    Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal.
    Cause you bet your life
    I'd never part with Sal,
    Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal.
    Git up there, mule, here comes a lock,
    We'll make Rome 'bout six o'clock.
    One more trip and back we'll go
    Right back home to Buffalo.

    Low Bridge, ev'rybody down,
    For it's Low Bridge,
    We're coming to a town!
    You can always tell your neighbor,
    You can always tell your pal,
    If you've ever navigated
    On the Erie Canal.
    Low Bridge, ev'rybody down,
    For it's Low Bridge,
    We're coming to a town!
    You can always tell your neighbor,
    You can always tell your pal,
    If you've ever navigated
    On the Erie Canal

    Live close to the middle of the Erie Canal. I can remember going to the Erie Canal when I was in fourth grade and singing that song. New News for New Yorkers....The Interstate 490 is going to be renamed as the Erie Canal Expressway....Pretty neat, huh? Hooray for New Yorkers and the Erie Canal (Clinton's Ditch).

    18 miles - 15 miles - I was only 3 miles off! Pretty good since it has been a few years since elementary. I'm not telling exactly how long-but it was last century. Ha!

    The canal stretches from the Hudson River to Buffalo, which I believe is on Lake Erie.

    "my DH and I are looking for houses at the moment.. Anything good in Waterford?? Nothing great in Cohoes right now!!!"

    The thing with Waterford, is most of the sales are by word of mouth and property sells fairly quick. I would suggest just taking a ride around and see what is available. I live in the village and have lived here for almost all of my life.

    Bravo, ya'll. I saw Albany at a glance and thought Georgia-(Duh). Great work on those lyrics, I remember them from a TV show or cartoon.
