COHOES, N.Y. - The City of Cohoes says they are helping residents stay safe and cool in the hot weather this week.
In order to help those without air conditioning, Cohoes residents may visit The Cohoes Senior Center on lower Remsen Street (518-235-2420) or The Cohoes Public Library on 169 Mohawk Street (518-235-2570).
