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:

2011-05-08 - USS Slater - Washington Park

In the past I described several walks around Albany that start at the USS Slater. This is direct walk to Washington Park. From the USS Slater, walk up Madison Ave., and loop around Washington Park. Return by State Street and the Hudson River Way Pedestrian Bridge.
Once a year (since 1949) Albany hosts a Tulip Festival. I took the walk during this year's event (Sunday Morning, May 8th). This year the city planted over 200,000 bulbs (~ 140 varieties).
