I lived in the Potsdam/Massena area for 7 years (1989–1996) and still visit there at least once a year, since my folks are still there, thanks to Clarkson University. Thank you for this article, because I’m in agreement. Potsdam is NOT your typical small rural town, nor should it ever be depicted as such. I go to visit my family, I get to re-connect to an amazing village and all those fond memories.
Keep on keeping on and keep on defending Potsdam! Much love from Bangor, Maine!
