What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: dog poop, a hawk, marzipan, buckets, servers, cupcakes, Utica, Vermont, ice, reasons, railroad tracks, toys and a house in Colonie.


Rob has a message for people walking in their dog in the winter: he's watching you.

B captured a photo of a hawk in downtown Albany.

Mr. and Mrs. Dave went for a birthday lunch at Provence -- and then saw a marzipan hot dog.

Daniel B detailed his local buckets of love.

Kristi had an odd dining experience.

R visited the Bettie's cupcake bus -- and was disappointed.

Steve mentioned Utica greens -- and they appeared.

Jackie saw some beautiful ice formations.

Sara had a fun drive to and from Vermont.

Kim D pointed out reason #233 why she loves Albany.

Chuck says the railroad tracks in Slingerlands need a new life.

Matt's Toys R Us experience left him looking for a better local shop for toys.

And Leigh told a story that involved her great aunt, a house in Colonie and... a man cave.

Bruce Fence Company came through for me in a big way last spring. Another local fence company gave me a price and a date and then faded away. (Perhaps a bigger job came along, but have the decency to call.) Needless, to say this failure to keep the date as promised created frustration with the neighbor on the other side of the fence. From my first telephone contact with Bruce to my first visit in their office and then through to completion of the job, every interaction was friendly and professional. The entire transaction went like clockwork.
