What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: how are you, outrage, ice jam, ALB, Syracuse, hiking terms, an awesome ride, goop, the Twin Bridges, dumplings, the ones that got away, From The Garden, Flavors of India, karidopita, the saddest, and farewell.

Amy on a viable alternative to "How are you?"

Stephanie, a native West Virginian, on the recent large-scale contamination of drinking water in the state: "I'm angry. No, I'm outraged."

Jackie said the the ice-choked Kayaderosseras Creek was an "impressive, kind of scary, sight."

Silvia gave an example of why she doesn't fly out of ALB.

Katelyn traveled to Syracuse for the SU vs. North Caroline game -- and to make some new memories.

Jen shared some hiking terminology from the Adirondacks.

After some icy disappointment, Albaniana took an "AWESOME RIIIIIDE" at Jiminy Peak.

Randal tested some goop to help protect his dog's paws from the salt and winter muck.

Chuck shared some new photos of the Twin Bridges.

Jeff shared some of the other dishes he enjoyed at Northeast Dumplings House in Albany.

The mention of Northeast Dumplings House prompted Daniel to encourage people to try new places -- or maybe end up missing out.

Kim described her dinner at From the Garden on Lark Street as "fresh, unique, and delightful."

J+R checked out Flavors of India in Albany.

And Jon bid farewell to his family's house.
