  l 優勢產業 Competitive industries

 

    斯克耐克特迪是制造中心,被譽為“點亮并帶動世界的城市”。這贊譽提到了該市的兩大企業愛迪生電氣公司(如今的通用電氣)和美國機車公司。美國機車公司為鐵路生產蒸汽機車。后來該公司以“超能”高壓機車而著稱。

The city was a manufacturing center known as "The City that Lights and Hauls the World" – a reference to two prominent businesses in the city, the Edison Electric Company (now known as General Electric), and the American Locomotive Company (ALCO). ALCO produced steam locomotives for railroads for years. Later it became renowned for its "Superpower" line of high-pressure locomotives.

  l 歷史文化 History and culture

 

    1765年斯克耐克特迪設自治鎮。直到美國獨立戰爭之后,村鎮居民才成功地減少了早期受托人后代的權利,建立了代議制政府。1798年建市。21世紀,斯克耐克特迪開始復興。通用電氣在此建立了可再生能源中心。該市是大都會區的一部分,經濟不斷改善,大量建筑得以修復用于新用途。無數的小企業、零售商店和飯店在市中心繁榮發展。

In 1765, Schenectady was incorporated as a borough. It was not until after the Revolutionary War that the village residents were successful in reducing the power of descendants of the early trustees and gaining representative government. The settlement was chartered as a city in 1798. In the 21st century, Schenectady began revitalization. GE established a renewable energy center that brought hundreds of employees to the area. The city is part of a metropolitan area with improving economic health, and a number of buildings have been renovated for new uses. Numerous small businesses, retail stores and restaurants have developed on State Street in the heart of downtown.
