The prosperity of the stagecoach era started to decline in the 1830s with the completion of the Codorus Canal into York. Also, in the 1830s, a railroad was put in and still runs through it. Today, the railroad only carries cargo and is operated by Norfolk Southern. Today, the only businesses in Cly are a bar and a landscaping service. Until the late 1990s, the community played host to a minor league baseball team called the Cly Bulldogs. For the last two years, it has hosted the Cly Mudcats, an All-star team from the York Adult Recreation League. Between the two teams, the field was controlled by a local school district and almost sold to a developer. In the late 1990s, a developer bought a small tract of land beside the Cly Ball Field, and built Riverside Village. During construction a Native American burial ground was found. Construction was halted for over a year while the site was excavated. Between completion and today, one of the houses has burnt down three times.
