The news broke last week that the Trojan Hotel in Troy was sold, and there’s big plans in store for the 5-story, almost 20,000sqft building. In a nutshell, the O’Brien family purchased the building and plan on moving their restaurant (O’Brien’s Public House) in, as well as calling the former Trojan Hotel their home. There’s quite a lot of work to be done, but they’re planning on tackling the project one floor at a time, starting with the restaurant. The basement will reopen as a bar. If you’re interested in all the details, read the full story from the Troy Record.

I stopped by during the Farmer’s Market on Saturday and got a tour of the building and gave it a once-over with my camera. It’s going to be a lot of work, but well worth it once completed. I’m glad to see another building getting an adaptive reuse rather than knocked down or left vacant. Click the photo above or hit the jump to see the gallery.

Mayowa Adelugba’s ‘Clifton Knolls’ Photoset

Mayowa Adelugba took a bunch of fantastic photos up in Clifton Park after the first of the big storms wreaked havok through the area. The photos look so great because were shot with a Leica Mini III and developed at McGreevy Pro Lab.

Click the photo above or head over to Mayowa’s cargo page to see the full set of photos.

Intense stuff. Always exhilarating when one of these rolls through. If you have any photos, please share.

Added a bunch of photos to the tumblr

Since I’d rather keep all the weird photos off the site by at least one degree of separation, I made a tumblr a while back and dump them all there. I put up some photos from all sorts everyday things to relevant Albany happenings, such as the Albany Center Gallery’s Gala last weekend.

Art on Lark: Photo Recap

It’s Art on Lark! Go enjoy some of the awesome artists that you’re fortunate enough to live near. There’s also a ton of other awesome shit and all of the galleries are open. Go before it rains again! I was lucky enough to get there after the first rain when everyone had scurried away. There were a lot of people about and a lot of people were still arriving when I left.

The following is from Jennifer Grainer at the former Planned Parenthood.
