What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: not voting for Cuomo, jazz at the rumble site, woodland finds, a long hike, Grant's Cottage, the Saratoga Wine & Food Fest, beer week in Troy, salad, the right decision at the right time, sashimi with twigs, watching football, a metal silhouette of a massacre, an abandoned car wash, and goodbye.

Silvia shared why she's never voting for Andrew Cuomo again.

Hollie recapped the Saratoga Wine & Food Fest for Daniel. And Steve shared a bunch of pics from the festival's grilling event.

The Bee Balm Girl enjoyed the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival, even though the rain site "seemed like a better site for a rumble between the Sharks and the Jets than for a jazz concert."

Jackie detailed some of her interesting woodland finds during a recent week.

Wayfarer Christine and Jen had a long and wet hike up one of the Adirondack high peaks, but at least the people were fantastic.

Julie checked out Grant's Cottage in Wilton.

The Fuj recapped a few beer week events in Troy: a beer dinner at The Grocery and a tap event at The Ruck.

Zena survey the salad options at Whole Foods.

The Chopsticks Optional crew declared that a choice to stop into Tara Kitchen in Schenectady was "the right decision at the right time."

Jerry's sashimi at Shogun was served with twigs.

At Saratoga Food Fanatic, a roundup of good bars to watch sports in Saratoga Springs.

Carl on his love for the Schenectady sign at the Great Western Bridge: "Because where else will you find a metal silhouette of a massacre?"

Chuck took some photos at an abandoned car wash in Latham.

And farewell to Albaniana.

They should turn Maiden Lane into a stepped pedestrian street, like they have all over Europe. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, they do steep small streets pretty well across the pond, let's look for some precedents... Human scaled lighting is critical too, that goes for the whole city. And we don't need paint on the road, just signage perpendicular to the flow of traffic at the bridge entrance. I also echo the call for basic, ongoing maintenance to our current infrastructure. How about some weed removal in sidewalks, etc?
