A quick recap of the week

week review 2017-03-31

Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:

+ A look at the plans for pedestrian and bus upgrades for one of Albany's busiest intersections.

+ We broke down some more New York population numbers that highlight one of the urban/rural splits in the state.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: hope and optimism, forming a new bond, parking around Lark Street, college applications, weather grumbling, the Albany Great Flood of 1913, die Heilige Kreuz Gemeinde, old downtown, Worcester, the wine and chocolate festival, winter bites, takeout, cilantro haters, Mrs. Fearnow, and punks.

+ We heard about the Albany All Stars Roller Derby move to a new home.

+ K asked about finding local mental health support groups. We could still use a few more suggestions for this question.

+ We played a game of Five Favorites with Matt from Albany Archives.

+ The music lineup for this year's Tulip Festival is out.

+ Jeff asked about finding a class or trainer to help his dog overcome a fear of kids and strangers.

+ And that's enough, March... it really is enough.

Here's the whole week in one place.

Thanks to everyone who posted a comment or shared an idea this week!
