What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the indelible legacy of Titus Eddy, the origin of Tulip Fest, the shared story of two families on Jay Street, the judge who died in the cemetery, the college wiped out by a landslide, urban renewal, daycare, winter hiking, frazil ice, heckling, manly men and their cats, shopping habits, Delaware Supply, Franklin Alley Social Club, Zaitoon Kitchen, and deep dreams.

Suzanne told the story of the Titus Eddy Mansion in Troy. "Turns out, it's one of Troy's most important buildings, built for one of Troy's most important families. Their legacy is not only important to the local area, but like many things that have come out of Troy, was important to the entire country."

The Friends of Albany History now have their own website! And the Albany Muskrat looked into the origin of the Tulip Festival.

98 Acres detailed the shared story of two Albany families displaced from Jay Street.

Paula shared the story of the judge who died at the Albany Rural Cemetery (though he's not buried there).

Carl recalled the Troy college wiped out by a landslide.

Sandy pulled together some ideas about the way people think about the history of urban renewal and the way it's shaped cities, touching on Hudson-Jay Park.

One of Kristi's readers asked about how to handle the waitlist process at daycares.

Jen explained how she layers up for winter hiking.

Jackie examined the frazil ice on the upper Hudson River.

Chuck engaged in some heckling at the Albany Patroons game.

Rob is a manly man with a dog (and a cat).

A shopping trip at the Delaware Ave Price Chopper prompted Silvia to ask some questions about how the store is stocked -- and her own shopping habits.

Daniel stopped in at the new Delaware Supply.

Erin checked out the Franklin Alley Social Club.

Melinda wasn't blown away by the food at Zaitoon Kitchen.

And Anna on challenging ourselves to "indulge in deep dreams this year."

So RANDOM THOUGHT on St Peter's college that was wiped out by Mount Ida...makes me wonder if somewhere on or near that site, the corner stone could be located and re covered...always interesting to have a chance to open the time capsule containing the newspapers, etc from that era.
