Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater (DE Docent). A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. The USS Slater is now open. I plan on walking in Albany on Monday, Memorial Day, May 27. You can contact me at:

2010-12-31 - Winter walk in Oakwood

Oakwood is one of my favorite walks. It is difficult to find a place to walk in the winter. Unshoveled sidewalks can force you into busy streets. On rural roads, ice patches and high speed cars can be deadly to walkers. While Oakwood isn't perfect, the roads are relativity clear. And most vehicles observe the lower posted speeds.

In the winter I avoid the loop to 114th street and the Uncle Sam Bike Path. However, there are plenty of other interesting routes.

I included some interior photos of the Earl Gardner Crematorium and it's Tiffany Windows.
