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

Someone placed a wooden duck (possibly a decorative planter) on the board covering the drain at the eastern end of Washington Park Lake. Perhaps it was a nod to the many ducks that make the lake home. Unfortunately, a few minutes after this picture was taken, a boy used his fishing pole to retrieve this duck from the board...only to pitch it into the lake. It was last seen floating forlornly on its side.
