St. Patrick's Day 2012 photos

St Patricks Day 2012 parade leprechaun skateboard sebastien barre

It was an excellent weekend for parading.

Sebastien's sent along a few photos from the St. Patrick's Day parade in Albany. (Yes, in black-and-white -- he was feeling a bit contrarian.) Be sure to check out his entire set.

A few other sets worth a look:

+ MIKECNY's set has a lot of good parade photos.

+ And Bennett documented the day a bit differently.

Hmmm, let's compare this to last year's St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, shall we?

Interesting to note that 2011 was only the 15 year of St. Patrick's Day Parades in Ireland.

Lots more photos have been hitting flickr, a big set from Through Z's View including an amazing balloon I can't believe I didn't see, some from LetMeTakeYourPhotograf, a handful from evenflo65, and someone named Deek the Bruiser whatever that is.

Imagine if a mixed use development - apartments, townhouses, restaurants, offices, a park - were built on the Rensselaer riverfront, and people on both sides could go to work and go out in either Albany or Renss, just by walking to a gondola station? If people had reason to traverse the Hudson - in both directions - for a reason other than commuting or getting to/from the train station, a gondola could be an awesome (and financially self-sustaining) idea, that also cuts down on the need for parking. ...
