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.

... Nano has been great for Albany and upstate, but the ends just don't justify the means. This was public money being steered in exchange for political donations and bribes. It didn't need to happen for those businesses to come here. (In fact we might have gotten better deals if it hadn't.) ...
