What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Bouck White, dropping knowledge, the expense of being poor, a well-lived day, the melody of a relationship, putting away your phone, spring wildflowers, grandkids, the chef/the person, the storied Albany Med turkey sandwich, food in Utica, gluten-free Chinese food, and Saratoga Vichy.

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.
