What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: last days, Williamstown, the world as God made it, the word "Albany," Lake George, the Arlington House, Bootleggers, fungus, cherries, blueberries, Peerless Pool, and package reception.

Chuck continued his documentation of the last days of the historic Trinity Church in Albany.

Christy loved Three Hotels at the Williamstown Theater Festival.

Jackie went to a place in the Adirondacks where "we can experience the world much as God made it."

Bennett's been collecting photos of Albany in print.

Crystal stopped by one of the old-fashioned arcades in Lake George.

Kevin wants you to give him a push off the top of the Crowne Plaza.

Silvia's taste buds were stimulated at the Arlington House in West Sand Lake.

Leah the Nosher says her brunch at New World backfired.

After a surreal experience, Jerry left Bootleggers in Troy with low expectations.

Steve has a new "must-have" at Creo.

Daniel got an unexpected -- and, depending on the person, disgusting or delicious -- find in his CSA box.

Albany Jane seemed a little unimpressed by her visit to Marmora Cafe in Troy.

Jess -- back in town for a little while -- taste-tested a handful of sauerkrauts from HWFC.

Cherries prompted Cap2Cap's love for Samascott Orchards.

Jen went blueberry picking at a secret patch.

The Idiots recommend the Peerless Pool as a refuge from the crowds at the Victoria Pool.

Albaniana stopped into an organic vegetable garden at a school in Guilderland.

One of Kristi's readers asked about a place to sell antiques.

BobF snapped some tiny-looking construction on River Street in Troy.

And Paula came across a blue "Majestic package receiver."


Thanks guys for plugging the event.

Special Olympics of NY provides services and assistance to over 47,000 differently abled young athletes and their families every year. With times tough and mantras of cuts and trims shouted from the rooftops, the unforeseen side effect is that organizations like this can suffer.

What you may not realize, though, is that literally every little bit helps. I posted incentives on the blog for posting larger contributions. But all I ask of anyone is to give what they can - even if it's just $10 or $20. If even a small handful of the people reading this and my blog were to donate that amount, it would go a long long long way.

So, if your table and your checking account allows it, please visit the blog, spread the word, and give: http://bit.ly/marshallplunge

Thanks again!

As always, thanks for the support Mary and Greg!
