    1765年斯克耐克特迪设自治镇。直到美国独立战争之后,村镇居民才成功地减少了早期受托人后代的权利,建立了代议制政府。1798年建市。21世纪,斯克耐克特迪开始复兴。通用电气在此建立了可再生能源中心。该市是大都会区的一部分,经济不断改善,大量建筑得以修复用于新用途。无数的小企业、零售商店和饭店在市中心繁荣发展。

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.
