What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: New Year's Eve, reflections on the past year and the year to come, the manner in which the inhabitants celebrated, facing the slope, Sawteeth, Schoharie Creek Preserve, a "generous subsidy," mini hotdogs, figgy pudding, Panza's, sushi, ghost signs, the biggest applause, hygge, and the Grinch report.

Steve shared a bunch of New Year's Eve scenes from around Albany.

Reflections on goals for this past year and the new year: Wayfarer Christine, Jona, Katelyn, Jerry, Albany Jane, Stephanie.

Carl once again shared the classic report on "the manner in which the inhabitants of the town [of Albany] celebrate New Year's Day."

Amy faced the slope -- and some fears -- at Killington.

Jen and Jona took an icy hike up Sawteeth -- an Adirondack High Peak.

The Exiles checked out the Schoharie Creek Preserve. (And got a visit from a deer -- and two police officers.)

Jackie -- at the excellent Saratoga Woods and Waterways blog -- reflected on what she wrote when she started the blog five years ago.

Daniel took issue with the assertion of a "generous subsidy."

Mr. Dave -- now at a new URL -- created his own Capital Region-style mini hotdogs.

KB made figgy pudding from the The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook.

Ashley went to Panza's for a double date.

Kim pointed out her favorite sushi place in Albany.

Chuck photographed some ghost signs in Waterford -- after a conversation with a police officer.

Albaniana noted who gets the biggest applause at the annual Albany Figure Skating Club Winter Ice Show.

The delivery guy's reaction to kitchen stove slated for removal from Albany Jane's house in Latham: "Oh my god."

The Bee Balm Gal savored the Danish idea of hygge.

And Rob shared his annual Grinch report.

Comments

Don't know if this is the right place to post this but I found a cat in the snow on Columbia St between Eagle and Chapel, Sunday afternoon Jan 5. She seemed cold and lost so I brought her home.

I think it's a she, about 6 months to a year old. She's mostly black with a lot of random tan coloring mixed around (have a picture). She's wearing a green flea collar and is very comfortable around me so I'm sure she's not a stray. Help me get her home!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

My son was born in November, and we love Harmony Mills Pediatrics in Cohoes. It's run by Mary Kathleen DiTursi who has a PhD in Engineering from RPI before getting her MD.
