What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the death of Richard Bailey, customer service, Thanksgiving, Korean food, librarians and Buffy.


TQL has some thoughts on the death of Richard Bailey -- she lives just a few blocks from the scene of the shooting. If you read anything from the Neighborhood this week, read this.

Kristi's looking for your stories about good (and bad) local customer service.

Steve's pulled together info on what local restaurants have cooking on Thanksgiving: The Desmond, The Inn at Erlowest (Lake George), Glen Sanders Mansion, Chez Sophie.

Love Korean food? Celina's found a great place.

It sounds like Laurie's fire inspector was inspecting her a little bit, too.

And Matthew's posted a song inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV version, of course).

There's a lot more going on around the Neighborhood, check it out. We just added Naomi's blog about de-cluttering her life. If you know of another great blog we should include, post a comment or send us an email: editors |at| alloveralbany |dot| com.

Hey, thanks for adding me! Two thumbs up for Matthew's song. And just for the record, I'm not planning on giving up any of my "Buffy" or "Angel" DVDs (and I'm still trying to figure out how to count them as 1 item).

All this and no comment on the "Stewarts Saga" over in the Craigslist missed connections?

Part of me wishes that I could have that much commotion on a craigslist missed connection.

Then I found two this week that I knew were for my friends - and even I felt creeped out about it.

I'm lost..what is the "Stewarts Saga" and where do I find it. Also, as I've said before, finding yourself on a Craigslist "Missed Connection" is just down right creepy. I actually didn't go back to the place where I was "missed" for a few weeks and my friends and I usually went at least once a week. It's just an uncomfortable feeling.

Emma, go back to last week (might have even started the week before) and look for w4w posts about "stewarts girl" or "stewarts". They're not hard to find.

Wow...that's a lot of drama at Stewarts. Thanks for the direction.

It was really like some kind of postmodern novella told in real-time. A sort of performance art short story.

It really was. I'd buy a ticket to the live show...

They should turn Maiden Lane into a stepped pedestrian street, like they have all over Europe. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, they do steep small streets pretty well across the pond, let's look for some precedents... Human scaled lighting is critical too, that goes for the whole city. And we don't need paint on the road, just signage perpendicular to the flow of traffic at the bridge entrance. I also echo the call for basic, ongoing maintenance to our current infrastructure. How about some weed removal in sidewalks, etc?
