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.


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.

Recent Comments

At the risk of sounding hokey, I'm thankful for all the gifts Albany has given to me. When I moved here in 1988, I knew no one who lived here. Less than 30 years later, I have the most remarkable network of friends, associates and peers who have supported each of my endeavors be they educational, artistic, personal or business related. I met and married the father of my sons here, have had the opportunity to own my own house and business and can say with confidence that not a single day goes by when I don't feel a Smalbany connection with someone I encounter as I run, walk or drive around my neighborhood. I love you, Albany!
