SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — A landlord and tenant are teaming up to propose a bar and intimate live-music venue on Jay Street across from City Hall.

Noah Smith, who bought and renovated the landmark Seneca Building at 118 Jay St. a half-decade ago, bought the much-smaller building at 116 Jay St. in 2018 and is putting plans in motion after COVID and other delays.
