ALBANY, N.Y. - Disappointment spread quickly Friday afternoon amoung many Albany businesses, after the New York Giants announced they would no longer hold summer training in the city.
During training camp, the Giants themselves were regular customers of local business and one bar and restaurant manager says their customer base grew because of them.
A sign proudly stating that Albany is the summer home for the New York Giants sits right outside Sutters Mill. For almost two decades the bar and restaurant has welcomed the players and set up yearly promotions catering to those who flocked to Albany to see the Giants during training camp.
General Manager Timothy Rodriguez says they had a number of promotions based on the fact Giants were in town.
"Obviously were dealing with about 30,000 people, so yes we're going to have to do some different things to generate revenue cause there are a lot less people in the area than there were last year," said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez says they are still optimistic though, because they have experienced one summer when the Giants weren't in Albany, and business did alright then.
