What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Sean Rowe, house hunting, an unusual ad, people who chose not to have kids, thinking about 31, supermarket flyers, restaurant pricing, the Capital Region's "Secret Hot Dog Shop-Phone Booth-Bar" taco night, cucumber/mango/salmon, Old Chatham, another act of meatloafistry, herzlichen gluckwunsch, turkey tails, and a dream window.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
