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!

Heritage Park Auction

Good timing, I guess: I write 4,000 nostalgic words about Heritage Park, and a week later the town approves a plan to auction off everything in the park. From today's TU:
From the bleachers to the urinals in the visitors locker room, the town of Colonie and Albany County will jointly auction off what's left of Heritage Park on Aug. 27, bringing the once-buzzing home of the Albany-Colonie Yankees several steps, a pizza oven and 580 feet of wooden outfield signs closer to a fate that's been all but certain for several years. "If they see a water meter they like, they can put a bid on it," said James Zambardino, the town's superintendent of parks and recreation, whose crews have been doing weekly checks on the 22-year-old facility since it went dark in 2002. "If a person wants to buy a seat, they can buy a seat."
Geez, why don't they just raffle off my childhood as a door prize. I hope the baseball-related stuff at least fetches a decent price.
