Half Moon In The Wind
I've lived in Albany for my entire life and spent a good amount of time downtown. So the fantastic weather vane atop SUNY Plaza is a very familiar sight. But I had never seen it actually pivot in the wind. Until yesterday when I looked up and finally saw it move. The large weather vane is, of course, a replica of Henry Hudson's Haelve Maen and was included in the design of the building because local legend says he dropped anchor at almost this exact spot.
A lifelong resident of Albany, N.Y. who loves history and writing, I'm also the site admin for Broadway actor Hugh Panaro. Currently working on a history of the Albany Rural Cemetery. Oh, and a Whovian.
