What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: 14 Albany changes in 2014, things missed, urban cycling, the year 2753, a gorgeous view, Albany Rural, Greenbush, sinuous lines, a cover, a real day, baby stuff, sidewalks, more and less, trends, coffee, disappointing chicken, a cat, and The Egg -- sunny side up.

Albanian attended a celebration of the new year -- for the year 2753.

Carl shared a really nice engraving of the first Greenbush Bridge, which spanned the Hudson River between Albany and what is now Rensselaer.

Jackie examined "the sinuous lines that were etched on the ice."

Amy got a publisher for her book!

In contrast to the photoshopped life representations that are so prevalent, Katelyn shared a real (bad) day.

The Idiots argued for more dog-friendly Saratoga Springs winter sidewalks.

The state of our roads makes it too dangerous for me to want to use my bike to go to work. It's scary enough to walk/jog around town and have people fly through stop signs/lights when I'm using intersections... and on a bike it's that much worse if you attempt to bike legally in the street. This would be a great start to making our community more safe in general. We have to start somewhere.
