Here's your chance to get one of those Nipper statues that have been all around downtown Albany

Downtown is Pawsome City Lines Mitch Biernacki

Those decorated Nipper statues that have been around downtown Albany for the past year as part of the will be up for auction this Friday at The Olde English.

The statues are part of the "Downtown is Pawsome" installation, one of the regular public art displays organized by the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District. They were decorated in all sorts of styles by local artists. There are about 20 of them.

They'll be for sale as part of auctions, both live and silent. Proceeds will benefit the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society and the Downtown Albany BID.

The event is Friday, September 21 at 7 pm in the garden at The Olde English (rain location is the Discover Albany Visitors Center next door). Admission is $10 and includes some snacks. There will also be a cash bar.

Ahh I really wish there was a way to not remotely :( I've been out if town to not only not get to see them but I'll be days late in getting to squire one too.

Another fund raising idea would be making the blank Nipper forms available for those of us who would like to create our own Pawsome statue.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
