Place game: the eyes have it

place mystery statue eyes

Update: Congrats to Kelly for being first with the correct answers (we're applying Jeopardy rules to the name) after just 56 minutes. An un-cropped photo is now after the jump.

And a tip of the cap to Duncan and Paula for also getting the correct answer.

(Maybe we'll do this again with some place harder to guess.)

Because we could use some fun, let's play a local place game:

Upon which street do the eyes in the above photo gaze? To whom do the eyes belong?* And from which building do they look?

First person to guess all three correctly in the comments will win a very modest prize. If no one gets all three correct by 11 am Thursday (February 26), we'll pick the person with the most number of correct answers. (And, in that case, if there are multiple people with two (or one) correct answers, we'll draw names at random.)

Be sure to include a working email address (that you check regularly) when submitting your comment.

* That is, who is the person depicted by the statue?

What a fun game :)

When the building was dedicated the newspaper reported that it was very uncommon for a man to see such an honor during his lifetime.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
