This Month's TNO will host a Green Light District all around Downtown Troy on Friday, November 28th!

You’ve probably heard tales of Troy’s Infamous Red Light District from a bygone era. But starting Thursday, Nov. 13, many downtown merchants will be creating Troy’s Green Light District. All retailers and restaurants that stay open until at least 7 p.m. are invited to display a decorative green light bulb to signify that Downtown Troy is open for business at night.
