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.

This is potentially good news for St. Josephs. I walk around it 2 or 3 times a week and the last few years the deterioration has seemed to accelerate. She will be looking right at it everyday from her front windows.
