What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: what they know that we've forgotten, not paying in cash, hospitals, Camp Bisco, a murder scene, the Boilermaker, free pizza, Pasquale's, the population at Golden Corral, summer trips, things not missed, shopping in Troy, and customer disservice.

Rob went berry picking in Columbia County -- and one found himself in the minority.

Chuck tried to pay cash to park in the Hedley Place parking lot in Troy -- and was told he had to pay with a card.

A visit to a NYC hospital made Matt appreciate the hospitals in Albany.

Sebastien posted a great photoset from Camp Bisco. (See also: extensive coverage at KAB.)

Only Jackie could look at Queen Anne's lace and see a murder scene. (Also, she got up close with an Eastern Hognose.)

Jen ran the Boilermaker in Utica.

Albany Jane enjoyed her free pizza at City Beer Hall.

Daniel and some of the TOP judges made a hopefully-not-last visit to Pasquale's.

Mr. Dave surveyed the cross section of the population at the Golden Corral brunch.

Jerry had a satisfying -- if maybe a little confusing -- experience at Juicy Burgers in Guilderland.

Summer trips! Silvia went to Montreal. Ashallann visited Maine.

Crystal went to a camp on Sacandaga.

There were some things about the Capital Region that Kristi did not miss while she was away.

Amanda was "enthralled" while shopping in downtown Troy.

The Exiles experienced Christman in July (and came across a touching tribute).

The Bee Balm Gal had a "civilized" time at Victoria Pool.

And Steve experienced some customer disservice with a bank.

Thanks guys. Christman Sanctuary is a really beautiful place - highly recommended!

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
