Re: PICTURE POST II!

We're in Albany for a meeting and last night went to a private 8 course tasting menu with wine pairing held in the restaurants penthouse dining room. The food was beyond amazing, really felt privilege to participate.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My H.S. graduation was in The Egg. The whole Empire State Plaza is really a neat place. Also, the building on the far middle-left is the New York Cultural Education Center, where my father worked in the Department of Education.

Were you near the Times Union Center? Kind of looks like it in the lower left.

Here are a couple of close-ups of the Empire State Plaza and The Cultural Education Center.

Is this the Cultural Education Center? It looks as if it had teeth.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

It is ... though, it's slightly less imposing in real life than it is in my B&W depiction of it. The building also contains the New York State Museum, a place where I spent many hours as a kid.

One of my Aunts posted this old picture on Facebook:



I'm the kid to the right of the kid in the red track-suit...
It was done as a birthday gift for my grandfather...
I must've been around 5 years old i think...

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Do I see a lot of early 80s hair? I have my own collection of family reunion pics with people sporting remarkably similar hairstyles and fashion sense.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

By international law, all mentions of 1980's hair are required to have the descriptor "a lot" included somewhere in the body of the sentence.

And references to "awesome". Totally.

although the hair in that pic looks to be more 70's-ish than 80's. To be 80's hair, there needs to be much more feathering.

Honestly I don't know Albany that well at all, so I'm not sure if it was Times Union Center. The restaurant was on Beaver Street, below Pearl. It is close to the river, could see it from the penthouse.

After two days of warm weather and rain, finally can see our lawn. A week or so more of this and maybe it will be all gone.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Nice! And speaking of spring ... it was snowing here in Queens this morning!




And yesterday it was foggy, drizzly and rainy while I was in Manhattan. I did my best to capture the mood:
