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.

When I used to bus-commute in another city, there was a similar smart card system and it was AWESOME. On/Off time was significantly decreased, so buses were even a little more timely. I hope this pilot goes smoothly because the faster this gets implemented, the better for bus riders. This is good news!
