Crossgates hotel plan would kill a Ted's Fish Fry location
Pyramid Cos. has submitted plans to build a five-story hotel adjacent to the mall across Western Avenue from the Beth Abraham Jacob Cemetery. Clearing the site for hotel construction would require demolishing the Ted’s Fish Fry on Western and an adjacent brick house, according to what was revealed at a meeting of the Guilderland Planning Board this week.
There are four other Ted's locations in the Capital Region: 203 Wolf Road, which is only minutes from the Guilderland location, 447 3rd Avenue in Watervliet, 636 Route 9 in Latham, 250 2nd Avenue in Troy, and 700 Hoosick Road in Brunswick.
Ted’s Fish Fry is a family-owned business that was founded more than 60 years ago by Ted Deeb, and now run by his son S.K. Deeb. The company website has a thorough and interesting history of the business.
