What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the Blake family, Knox & Mead, purchasing your own supply of chocolate, the pearly gates, helping kids become community members, snow stress, mineral springs, snowy photos, The Tollgate, pizza, the restaurant industry, Buffalo wings, and childhood.

The Friends of Albany History told the remarkable story of Albany's Blake family.

Carl looked into the history of the Knox & Mead building in Troy.

Amy on being alone on Valentine's Day: "YOU CAN PURCHASE (AND THEN EAT) YOUR OWN SUPPLY OF CHOCOLATE. I do this all the the time. It is very, very easy. Trust me on this one."

Rob imagined an exchange at the pearly gates as a reflection on the consequences of what's said for mass consumption.

Chris thought about her role as a teacher and helping kids become of tolerant communities.

Katie share her snow anxieties: "I hate the snowblower almost as much as I hate driving in the snow. From my perspective, both involve gas, engines, a stunning awareness and display of my own incompetence, and the risk of injury or death."

Jackie visited the snowy mineral springs in Saratoga Spa State Park.

The snow inspired Chuck to take some photos (even though he knew he probably shouldn't).

The tenuous state of the Tollgate had Mr. Dave thinking about people doing the right thing and places that can't be replicated.

Ashley tried out the pizza at Berkshire Mountain Bakery in the Saratoga Springs.

Dominic shared more snippets from the restaurant industry.

Daniel has set the next Tour de Buffalo Wing.

Otis repurposed leftover Buffalo wings.

And Silvia on the competing speed up/slow down of childhood.
