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.

I'd love to see a WPA style painted mural there that celebrates the communities between Albany and Voorheesville that the trail connects, with a nod to the different kinds of transportation (train, now bike, feet) that trail has supported.
