"Left On The Drawing Board: Alternate futures of the Capital District"

This could be interesting: The Troy Innovation Garage will be hosting an event called "Left On The Drawing Board: Alternate futures of the Capital District" on January 26. It's organized by Cornerstone Consulting and Troy by Gas-Light. Blurbage:

Much has been written and discussed about the building and highway projects that have been built in the Capital District throughout its four century history, and the impacts, both positive and negative, of such projects on the communities in which they are located. But, what about the multitudes of projects that never made it past the drawing board, or those that were begun but never completed? Those unbuilt and incomplete projects and how they might have changed the look and feel of the region will be examined in a series of presentations at the Troy Innovation Garage ...

And the organizers are looking for submissions from people who might like to talk about particular project that didn't happen. The deadline to submit is December 15. Here are the details about how to submit.

"Left on the Drawing Board" is Friday, January 26 at 6:30 pm at the Troy Innovation Garage (24 4th Street in downtown Troy). It's free.

I bet this would make for an interesting book. Last Christmas I received a book about projects-that-never-were in NYC.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

What's All Over Albany?

All Over Albany is for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. In other words, it's for you. It's kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who can help you find out what's up. Oh, and our friends call us AOA.
