Dark Side of Center Square walking tour

university club black and white invertedThere's a "Dark Side of Center Square" walking tour coming up later this month. The guide is Tim Varney -- of the Albany: Then and Now app -- and it's a fundraiser for the Historic Albany Foundation and the University Club. From the blurbage:

Many dark and unsettling dramas have played out behind the elegant façades of Albany's Center Square and Hudson/Park neighborhoods. This tour will explore both the sinister deeds and the handsome architecture of a bygone era.

Tim tells us of the tour, "The narrative will be 'R-rated' and include graphic material not suitable for children or the faint of heart."

The tours are October 28, 29, and 30. They're from 6-7:30 pm, and start at the University Club at 141 Washington Ave. It's $15 per person.

There's limited space and reservations are required: 465-0876 x10.
