787 from RPI winter venkata

Venkata sent along this photo after a recent snowfall -- it's from the 9th floor of a building at RPI. We like the streaks formed by the traffic on 787 Route 7 as it heads off into the background.

We're a bit envious of the view from his office.

Here's a large-format version, along with one more photo.

(Thanks, Venkata)

Always liked nighttime photos, especially when the traffic creates those streaks.

Is there any possibility we're actually seeing Route 7 (formerly Alt. 7) in the background as it heads west? Or are my bearings way off?

That's Route 7

@Amanda, Bob: You're correct. I had it turned in my head. (And I totally should have known better because of the Hedley building. Oof.) Thanks for catching that.

These pics are amazing! Pity my lab at the 8th floor has no windows.. :(

Um, his "office" must be really uncomfortable this time of year as the first photo clearly shows that he's on the rooftop. So I wouldn't be too envious.

I know some people get excited when they hear that some chain from outside the area is coming to the Capital Region, but I'm not one of them. Local businesses mean local dollars; the money stays here rather than going to a corporate headquarters far, far away. If Price Chopper is sold to an outside company - especially a company that answers to its stockholders more than its customers - that could have a huge impact.
