Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist elephant slideThe good thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations. The bad thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations.

Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

There are nice people out there. Really.

Ladies can't resist a guy in a toll booth.

He encountered Sleeping Beauty -- in the Walmart parking lot.

He bought makeup from her and didn't even ask her out.

"Why don't you come ride the other ab coaster with me and we can work on my fitness."

She was very passionate about... taking burger orders?

Probably not something a person would try to claim at lost and found.

"I loved how you drive your bike along side of me staring at me."

"... you make every crappy McDonald's meal a Happy Meal"

It might behoove Cory to be serious with her...

He let her stab him 50 times -- and yet, no date.

She has a long list for her ideal guy BFF.

Sadly she's not looking for a partner in actual crime -- just shocking the common public.

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. ...
