What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: on who is Albany, the state of our state, fire vs. ice, a blood-red path through the snow, a snowy hike, the King's Highway Barren, Lake Placid, shopping for art, quality ingredients, Crimson Sparrow, U Mundu E Ca, late night food, crimes and punishment, and old railways.

In the recent "moment of widespread political spazzing" the use of "Albany" as synonym for corruption, Amy declared: "I am Albany."

The state of our state made Silvia angry.

Rob on fire vs. ice on the Hudson.

Jen went for a snowy hike at Moreau Lake State Park.

Christine explored the King's Highway Barren.

Ashley went to Lake Placid for the weekend.

Julie bought art in downtown Troy.

Dominic had a few thoughts about quality ingredients, complaints about price, and Sysco.

Albany Jane and John had dinner at The Crimson Sparrow in Hudson and shared a bunch of pics.

Zena got a takeout dinner from U Mundu E Ca in Colonie, "one of those little hidden gems that are worthy of attention."

Daniel had an announcement.

One of Steve's readers asked about late-night restaurant options.

Carl chronicled the final hangings in Albany's history.

And snapping a photo of the old New York Central locomotive in Princetown got Chuck thinking about visiting heritage railroads, and he's hoping people have some suggestions.
