When we started AOA a decade ago we had no idea what was going to happen. And it turned out better than we could have expected. We met so many interesting people and learned so much about this place.

Now that it's ended we are so grateful for the relationships, for the stories, for the comments, for the encouragement, for everyone who took a chance on us -- for all of it.

Thank you.

A few answers to a few of your questions about the end of AOA

We have been overwhelmed by the response to our announcement last week that AOA will be ending December 31. Thank you to everyone who's posted a comment, sent us a note, or talked with us in person. We're tremendously grateful for all the support.

Many of you have had questions about why this is happening, whether there's a way to keep the site going, or what's next.

So we've pulled together a handful of the most common questions with a few answers. We hope they're helpful.

And, again, thank you.

AOA will be coming to an end soon. Thank you for being a part of it.

One of the secrets of AOA all these years has been that we were often writing to ourselves. To be curious, to pay attention, to try something new, to talk with more people, to listen, to understand that change is hard but often necessary.

And here is a big change: All Over Albany will be ending December 31.

We hope you'll stick around with us through then -- AOA will continue to publish until the end of the year, and we have a few more interesting things on the way.

The last decade has been an amazing experience and we are tremendously grateful to all of you for being a part of it.

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.

Albany tightened its rules for shoveling snowy sidewalks last winter -- so how'd that work out?
