A quick recap of the week

week review

Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:

+ James at 42 was this week's My Exit person.

+ Kaitlin shared some fun shopping spots in Northampton.

+ Colonie was named the safest municipality (over 75k people) in the nation.

+ Speaking of Colonie... it's a town, not a city. So, what's the difference?

+ Jess visited the new vegan bakery in Troy.

+ Greg finally got a haircut.

+ Kaitlin stopped a guy on the street to talk about this coat.

+ Jess asked about volunteer opportunities during the holidays.

+ And what was up in the Neighborhood this week: Joe Bruno, books on the bus, restaurant rebirth, grocery lists, egg nog, cauliflower, Polish liquor, markets, a cemetery, parties, and thankfulness.
