+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: "Me too" stories, seeing a visit in a different light, the miracle of art, the truth in a post-truth world, the haunted Capitol, Eleanor Roosevelt, photographic family history, Cypress Pond, Mohawk Club Pale Dry Ginger Ale, lunch along the upper Hudson, dinner in Ballston Spa, dessert, and things that are OK.

+ A roundup of upcoming Halloween costume parties for adults.

+ Greg wrote about the experience of becoming a "bike person" and riding around Albany.

+ Here's a snapshot of the Capital Region pitched for the Amazon headquarters.

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
