Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning


"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

This is just depressing

Wasted money, unkept promises, and nothing to show for it. What a train wreck.

And it was all in an effort save 25 minutes on a 2 hour plus ride to New York City. Maybe it'll teach them a lesson.

Way to blow 60 or 70 million dollars. The state should have used that money to reintroduce communter trains from Saratoga County to Albany.

Maybe the state should get into the train business like North Carolina and California and take back the turbos and run the trains from Montral down to Albany and Albany west to Buffalo.

God knows they can't be any worse that Amtrak at this point.
