What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the apartment building that moved, a stolen bike, an olympiad, a comic shop, the Paint Mine trail, a living blob, DiBella's, perfect gnocchi, Trader's Joe's, a grating comment, a hidden gem, Vermont, bad pizza, the freeosk, and evidence the past was more fun.

Kevin's stolen bike reminded him of something he's learned about the generosity of others.

Sebastien took a bunch of fun photos at the Fort Orange Olympics.

While in Pennsylvania Daniel came across evidence that Trader Joe's is just taunting people in the Capital Region.

Comments

I always love Sebastien photos and your links to him so I remember to go over and look.

Thanks guys. While one of our local comic shops wasn't the only one in the world to participate, it's still great to own an internationally recognized publication featuring your friendly neighborhood comic shop (and friendly neighborhood Spider-man) on the cover.

As always, much thanks to the AOA crew.

It's not a bad idea. However I would encourage everyone to think creatively... Can it be like a farmers market - but more? Like a farmers market plus something else? I visited Albany the weekend of the recent market there and really enjoyed seeing so many people in the park on a weekend. What could be done to set it apart from the other markets? ...
