Albany Barn in post ad 2018

The Friends of Albany History pulled together a big collection of materials mapping out the history of transportation in Albany.

Carl walked through the story of the Rice Mansion, which is now part of the Albany Institute.

Paul detailed the life of Harmanus Bleecker.

Kristi on Sinclair and CBS6: "While I recognize -- and support -- the idea that if your job is public you're open to (and deserve) public opinion, good or bad, the vitriol directed toward the staff here in Albany (or any individual market, really) is unfair."

The Sinclair situation had Roger nostalgic for local TV news of the past.

Rob raised his eyebrows at local TV coverage -- and meta-coverage -- of a standoff.

Jen went for a group ride with the Saratoga Women's MTB collective.

Silvia decided to scare herself in Vermont.

Jackie visited the springs in Saratoga Spa State Park.

A new sport led Katie to The Deep End.

Dominic reflected on some of the differences between people in the restaurant industry and "nine-to-fivers."

Ashley revisited The Wine Bar in Saratoga Springs for dinner.

A sandwich prompted Daniel to have many feels.

And Jon went on an epic pizza tour.
