Photos of Albany, New York - from the historic to the random.

When I was very little, the city planted maple trees along my street and a number of others in the Center Square area. The trees were surrounded by little iron fences like this. As the trees grew, the fences were removed. But they must have missed this one near the corner of Dove and Spring Streets. As the trunk has expanded, the iron has become embedded in the bark.
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.
