What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the mailman, covering Obama, CVS receipts, the hot pencil, the Old Stone Fort Museum, New York-Massachusetts-Vermont, Hoosic and Hudson, RPR, a day on the farm, the State Fair, 15 Church, the frankencake, Gus's, Troyster, a brew pub, and an ostentatious car.

Albaniana had an unnerving encounter with her mailman (or an insight into the power of metadata).

Rob questioned the decision of a local TV station to send a reporter to cover Barack Obama's appearances in Syracuse and Binghamton.

Stephanie detailed some of her absurdly long CVS receipts.

One of Kristi's readers report that there's a hot pencil this year. Yep, a pencil.

The Exiles visited the village of Schoharie and the Old Stone Fort Museum.

Jen rode through New York, Massachusetts, and Vermont -- on a bike.

Jackie explored where the Hoosic meets the Hudson.

Jona hiked Rocky Peak Ridge.

Crystal enjoyed a beautiful evening on Sacandaga Lake.

Kimberly spent a day at a farm in Schoharie County.

Chuck won some ribbons at the State Fair.

Steve got a preview of what's in store for 15 Church, the new Saratoga Springs restaurant that includes chef Jason Baker.

The Fuj on a frankencake from Cheesecake Machismo: "Upon opening the box is just a damn thing of beauty."

Jerry paid tribute to Gus's.

J+R checked out Troyster Tuesday at the Confectionery.

The Beer Doctors surveyed a brew pub in Syracuse.

And the Idiots had some reactions to a spotting a rather ostentation car in downtown Saratoga Springs.

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
