What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: being our best selves, Albany and race, the Pride parade, sounding off, the roots of the New York Times, one of Albany's famous families, the history of Albany's Jewish congregations, making a change, the pizza of downtown Troy, Brown's Summer Sessions, leaving the restaurant kitchen, quiet restaurants, sweets, the Walkway Over the Hudson, gear for the High Peaks, the banks of the upper Hudson, and ribbon-seeking photos.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
