Corinth, Greenfield



These are the two Adirondack Park Gateway towns that are on NY 9N, northwest of Saratoga Springs. Corinth is an old mill village on th upper Hudson River. It's pretty nice there along the river, though the paper mill there shut down a while ago. But in the village there is a supermarket and other sundry stores. NY 9N itself is an okay road, but there is a lot of traffic, homes and some heavy bends, so be cautious on this stretch, especially through Greenfield Center. Greenfield is the rural town just NW of Spa City. It is getting built up a bit as a Saratoga suburb, but it has plenty of short, second generation forest on really sandy soil. There is a lot of state land there, get a map. There are also the Petrified Sea Gardens and Lester park just north of Ballston Spa on Rowland Avenue. It is about a mile north of NY 29 on Rowland Avenue CR 47, but it's called Lester Park Road there. All that sand and fossils there are a reminder of the ancient sea bottom that included Albany too.
