GE Realty Plot tour 2017

GE Realty Plot tour 2017 posterThe GE Realty Plot House & Garden Tour returns this June 3 and 4. Tickets are $25 -- they're available online (and a few retail spots listed at the first link).

The tour is offered every other year in the Schenectady neighborhood just east of Union College. General Electric bought it at the end of the 1800s and it was subdivided as a neighborhood for company executives. The design of the neighborhood was inspired by New York's Central Park.

This year's tour includes six homes. A listing is after the jump.

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
