What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the eclipse, things that shouldn't need to be said, an attention gap, a counterfeit bill, moving, a mountain bike mecca, a rare plant, the old Eagle Hotel, Schenectady libraries, ice cream, roast beef, beer, frozen yogurt, and Albany-themed art.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
