What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: characters of old Albany sidewalks, Abraham Lincoln in Albany, a fight among Schuyler siblings, stating the obvious, the Capitol's eastern approach, falling yogurt, train travel, Poke-o-Moonshine fire tower, Lake Desolation, photo entries, opening weekend encounters, Saratoga restaurants, vacation cocktails, the snack box, a backyard pizza oven, and 10 years.

Carl recalled some of the colorful characters of Albany's old sidewalks.

The Friends of Albany History told the story of Abraham Lincoln's first visit to Albany and the important connections he made here.

At the Schuyler Mansion blog, Jessie chronicled a fight between Eliza Schuyler Hamilton and her siblings over land in Albany following their father's death.

Amy decided it was time to state the obvious.

Rob wondered why the Capitol's eastern approach is closed. (Maybe for fear of falling yogurt?)

Silvia shared some thoughts on train travel in Europe -- and how it compares to here.

Jona hiked to the Poke-o-Moonshine fire tower.

Jackie explored the shores of Lake Desolation.

Chuck shared his photo entries for the New York State Fair.

It sounds like Dominic had some very opening-weekend encounters.

Ashley ran through some of the recent changes to the restaurant scene around Saratoga.

Daniel mused on vacation cocktails.

Otis went a little nuts about the Southwest snack box.

Jon provided an update on the construction of his backyard pizza oven. (Lookin' good!)

And happy 10th blog anniversary to Mr. Dave. May you post regularly once again. Someday.
