Rotterdam town Schenectady province, eastern New York, U.S. It borders the city of Schenectady south of the Mohawk River. Around then the present town of Rotterdam filled in as the remote farmlands and wood parts for the pilgrims. With couple of exemptions, these pioneers made their homes in the stockade in Schenectady yet went to their farmlands amid the daytime.
Rotterdam Junction, a rural group in the lower regions of the Adirondack Mountains, was, from 1883 to 1931, an imperative stream and rail point for Erie Canal shipments. The terrains now known as Rotterdam turned into Schenectady's third ward when that city was consolidated in 1798. Rotterdam held that status when the region of Schenectady was contracted in 1809. Amid this period, a board of council members and collaborators from every one of the four wards administered the city of Schenectady.
