What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: The Confectionery, veterans, ethics in the wine store, a church with a canon, Henry Street, food trucks, Dave's Pizza and Burgers, Malayasian food, maple syrup, a storied title, hot sauce, autumn in a jar, the Hennig Preserve, a marathon trip, the library, a dream window, and historical dogs.

Silvia thanked a veteran.

Crystal went to the grand opening of the The Confectionery in Troy.

One of the Kristi's readers considered the ethics of buying a mis-priced bottle of wine.

Akum noted the history of Albany's "combination house of worship and armed outpost."

Carl remembered a time with Green Street in Albany was notable for something more than parking lots.

The Idiots recognized that they've recognized the potential of Henry Street in Saratoga Springs.

One of Steve's readers asked about hiring a food truck.

Jerry stopped into Dave's Pizza and Burgers on Fuller Road (that's Dave from the former Burger Centric).

The Masticating Monkey visited "an honest-to-goodness authentic" Malaysian restaurant in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

Daniel argued the case for real maple syrup.

Mr. Dave put to the test "the storied title of 'Albany Times Union - Top Rated Vodka.'"

Katie shared a celebration of fall in a mason jar.

Emily shared some of her finds from the Saratoga Spice and Salsa Company.

Jackie visited the Hennig Preserve in Saratoga with one of the people who donated the land.

Jen took what sounds like a marathon train trip to run a marathon.

Nicole's been re-discovering the library.

Chuck shared one of his dream windows.

And not local, but Laura's historical dogs series is fun.

Comments

Thanks for the link! I searched the Library of Congress for photos of dogs and posted the best ones I've found. Wanting to spoil and take your dog everywhere is not an affectation of the last decade or so.

It was probably an error, but I think in future we should refer to KGB as "the Kristi."

... As has been pointed out, the high peaks, especially the eastern zone, suffers from a lot of overuse. Those really concerned about impact may want to consider visiting other areas, though that might make it busier in some of my favorite spots... there are other places in the ADKs and Catskills with just as much challenge and reward as any high peak, and so much to see and do other than summits.
