What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: outer buttcheek/thigh germs, Miss Albany, the proposed cabaret law, @hello, chicken wing cupcakes, the way to a woman's heart, the royal treatment, Mr. Subb, Schenectady restaurant week, beautiful food, the Troy waterfront, Abigail and John Adams, spots in Saratoga, and how to mend a broken heart.

Show me a city without a downtown parking problem, and I'll show you a city with a downtown problem. City's should embrace parking shortages as a good problem to have. It means people want to visit your city, and they're willing to pay for it. It seems the people that complain about parking the most, are the suburbanites who think they're entitled to park right in front of their destination for free.
