What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the story of Sibbie, an Albany church history, lousy with hatters, a photo show, being serenaded by frogs, blazing a trail, recovering, the Tour de Burger, Peck's, diner breakfast, dentists, and checking off the weird option.

Paula detailed her research into the life of a woman named Sibbie, the last documented slave at Schuyler Flatts. The identity of her grave at the Albany Rural Cemetery was almost lost.

Christopher shared another Albany church history, this one for a parish that no longer exists, but its building still stands.

Carl recalled the time "Albany was lousy with hatters named Mayell."

Chuck has a photography show at St. Agnes Cemetery's "Living Room" now through June 30 and there's a reception this Friday.

Jackie was serenaded by frogs during I Love My Park Day at Moreau Lake State Park.

Jona followed her own trail up Rusk Mountain.

Silvia recapped a difficult trail race in Massachusetts.

Daniel shared the overall results of the Tour de Burger, a tasting tour of seasonal burger stands. And Otis and Jon both provided their own commentary on the tour.

Zena's answer for the best local restaurant: Peck's Arcade -- and she recapped a recent meal there.

The Traveling Brunchers stopped at the Pearl Street Diner.

One of Kristi's readers asked about finding a dentist with a payment plan.

And Amy on picking weird over normal.
