What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: syndromes, facials, free stuff, matzoh balls and Tim Gunn.


Rob says we should cut Charles O'Byrne some slack for the whole "late filing syndrome" thing. As Rob points out, "there are many obscure conditions that perfectly normal people deal with every day." He provides a few examples.

Kristi has the first post in her customer service series. It sounds like Kimberley's customer service might need a makeover.

Naomi lets us in on how to score free (nearly new) magazines at the Saratoga Springs Public Library.

Herself a matzoh ball soup orphan, Susan finds comfort at the Metro 20 diner.

And Me. asks "What Would Tim Gunn Do?" if he were riding the bus with slobby UAlbany students.

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

This is certainly a missed opportunity. How does this convey "welcome" "healing" or "pediatrics"? It's got the same aesthetic (and one can infer design values) as the AMC parking structures, Cogen, cvs, and offices. Did they even hire an architect? Come on Albany. Demand more from this institution. The bar has been too low for too long and their footprint grows and grows.
