What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: three decades in Albany, the Wolfe Island Wave, the answer we need, the labor that built the Capitol, Josiah Stanford, Elm Ridge, the back bay, books, building the base, Saratoga locals, DeFazio's, the Warehouse District, cookbooks, and a diamond at the ValleyCats game.

Silvia reflected on 30 years on living in Albany.

Rob recommended giving people the Wolfe Island Wave.

Roger thought about the gap that sometimes arises between the correct answer and the answer we need.

The Friends of Albany History detailed the labor that went into the building state Capitol.

Carl recalled Josiah Stanford -- a prosperous farmer and innkeeper in Colonie -- and the father of Leland Stanford.

Jen went mountain biking at Elm Ridge.

Jackie explored the back bay of Moreau Lake multiple times, though each time was new in some way.

Barbara had what sounds like a lovely day: the Festival of Books at the Spencertown Academy, lunch at Dan's Diner in Chatham, and then Berkshire Botanical Garden.

Dominic gave some advice on the building the base.

Otis noted the return of locals to Saratoga restaurants.

Daniel got a lot of people together for pizza at DeFazio's.

Steve asked readers about what sort of food establishments they'd like to see in the Warehouse District.

Mr. Dave continued his church cookbook odyssey.

And Jona's weird kind of luck led her to a diamond at the ValleyCats game.


As always, thank you for the mention!
