What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a term that doesn't fit, Albany High School, Albany as a media capital, once-popular clubs, farming reality, mountain biking, hiking along the border, a new trail, a dash, upstate cuisine, favorite fall bites, the new wine shop, a new brewery, tequila, Tara Kitchen, and fun at the dentist's office.

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.
