Welcome! The Katbird Shop is located in downtown Schenectady, just a short walk from City Hall, Jay Street, and Proctors Theatre.

We are two shops in one: the main room of The Katbird Shop features the new - fine American art & crafts. The backrooms and basement house the old - 8 rooms of antiques & collectibles.

History buffs will enjoy visiting The Katbird Shop; Chester Arthur, the 21st president of the United States, is said to have lived here before he attended Union College.
