What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a first trip to the Track, apathy and hot dogs, CBS and TWC, Megabus, an ADK weekend, peaks, Vermont, Canajoharie, a farewell, shooting lessons, volunteering, the Washington County Antiques Fair, flora in the clouds, 100 acres, Capital Region food culture, fresh tomatoes, sashimi, architecture, a dog detective, pie crust, and two year olds.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.

787 is sticking around for a long time, but if you want to change it the time to start is now
