what people think I Live In Troy by Duncan Crary

What people think about Troy

what people think Troy

Not untrue.

Fun: Duncan Crary picked up the "what people think" meme and made one for Troy. That's it above -- there's also a larger version after the jump. It pokes some fun at everyone, including Duncan.

As Duncan emailed: "It'd be fun if folks from around the Albany area were encouraged to make these for their various communities (i.e. Albany, Schenectady, Delmar, Clifton Park, Saratoga, etc)."

Perfect in all the ways :)

This entire thing is right on, but especially the land of misfit toys analogy!

As a newly transplanted Trojan I have to say this is RIGHT ON.

SO MUCH LOVE to this. Awesome work, Duncan.

I love this. I live in (and love) Troy and I HATE people's reactions when I tell them where I live...I'm constantly defending what a great place it is.

I'm with ETB on this... Troy is an awesome place with lots of community spirit... unlike that rest stop off of the Northway at exit 9... Clifton Park or something like that??

Ditto for Albany, ETB. We suffer some real low pace esteem here in the capital region.

I'm sorry but...I was in downtown Troy today and except for two streets near Sage and Footsie Magoos, it is a scary, grisly and god-awful place.

The more I go there, there more I realize it really is "the new Brooklyn."

Brendan- no need to apologize. If you don't like it, you don't like it! I'll love it enough for the both of us. :)

I'm loving this. MY wife an I have lived in Troy for about 8 years now, and we do feel like it is Brigadoon. hehe. I think it is a misunderstood place with a lot of culture and great history which can be overshadowed to people that don't take the time to really explore (Brendan). I've met more cultured interesting people since I lived here than all of my time in Albany or elsewhere.


I've explored.

I went to school there (near there). I've gone out there numerous times, day and night. I know many people who live there. Some parts are cool and it does have history, no one is debating that. But you can't walk around downtown (and I said downtown, not the entire city of Troy) with out feeling like you're about to get mugged or raped, day or night.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
