Mohawk Harbor tenants like life on the river

08-26-2017

The view isn’t the only good thing, but it makes a strong first impression.

The first tenants are settled in at the River House apartment building overlooking Mohawk Harbor, pioneers of sorts in a partially full building in a partially completed neighborhood sitting on a site that had been home to the rusty remains of a locomotive factory until several years ago.

Several tenants spoke to The Daily Gazette and said they are happy with their new homes and love the waterfront view.

Joe Altieri left his native Amsterdam for a unit on the harbor side of the building. He likes what he sees but also likes the lifestyle and low-maintenance living.

“The place is perfect for the person who just wants to lock the door,” he said. “When you rent there, you’re buying into a lifestyle.”

That lifestyle includes sitting on his balcony and watching the sun go down, at least for the rest of summer.

“The apartment complex itself, the view is great,” Altieri said. “I never knew how many boats go up and down the river. I couldn’t frame it any better; the sun sets right in the middle of my window.”

Altieri, who works downtown at Transfinder, said he also likes the city he’s moved into and the new neighborhood that’s being created along its riverfront.
