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.

Akum shared the story of the Albany apartment building that moved 350 feet.

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.

Jerry tried to treat his local comic shop right.

Dawn walked the Paint Mine trail at Thacher Park.

While paddling the backwaters of the Hudson, Jackie encountered a blob -- and IT'S ALIVE!

Mr. Dave likes the cut of DiBella's jib.

Cap2Cap had "perfect" gnocchi in North Bennington.

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

A server's comment grated on Steve's ear.

FiS Dan took inspiration from Homer Simpson in describing his thoughts on a pizza place in Saratoga. (Also: the market for Saratoga B&Bs doesn't seem so hot.)

Rochelle experienced the "freeosk" at Price Chopper.

Jess visited a "kind of hidden gem" at Westgate Plaza.

Kristi met... Kristi.

A few of Chuck's local photos will be in competition at the State Fair.

Albaniana appreciated the absence of billboards in Vermont.

Paula came across a smile on the street.

And Leigh got evidence that Albany may have been "WAY more fun" in the past.

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.

... Much of what makes the area special is the suburban and rural experience and public natural resources. If that stuff isn't really your thing, you're not an asshole, you just have personal tastes that don't mesh well with the region. That said, you do have to put in effort to like this area. It doesn't come to you; for better or worse, you have to seek it out. And that's not for everyone either. ...
