What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: many lives, speeders, the American dream, mountain hiking, paddling, Westchester, Portland, Bacon Fest, Burmese food, a silence-inducing bite, coffee, chicken parm, letters to the editor, sound, Alaska, and ice cream-making women.

Amy shared an unexpected discussion about having many lives.

Stephanie: "I'm that parent who complains practically non-stop about the cars speeding by my house, and as of this afternoon, literally yells at people to slow down."

Albaniana saw some friends take a huge step.

Jen reflected on a year of mountain hiking.

Jackie took her keen eye for detail for a Sunday paddle on the river.

Julie explored Croton Gorge Park in Westchester County.

J+R went on a little foodie tour in Portland, Maine.

The Fuj checked out Bacon Fest at the City Beer Hall.

Albany Jane got together a table of six at Shwe Mandalay, a Burmese restaurant in Albany, and recapped the meal plate by plate.

A bite at The Wine Bar in Saratoga Springs left Jerry momentarily speechless.

Ashley shared her favorite spots for a cup of coffee in Saratoga Springs.

Zena tried Tesoro Italian Restaurant in Guilderland.

Rob wondered if we were better off with letters to the editor.

Silvia thought about the effects of sound.

Not local, but interesting: Wayfarer Christine has been recapping a trip in Alaska.

And Carl pointed out that time The Albany Ice Cream Company ventured to hire women (gasp!).

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
