Hi, I just found this forum. I am traveling to Albany tomorrow actually and was wondering if anyone can recommend some activities an 11 yr old might enjoy, and what about some kid friendly restaurants in the area? Someone recomended the Pump Station to me, but is it kid friendly? And the one major question, what's the price of gas running down there? Up here in Lockport NY it's dropped to2.97 that's down from3.05 two weeks ago. Any help is greatly appreciated. Shelley
Having been a native of New York CITY, but not living there for many years, I am very hesitant to move to New York STATE but my husband may accept a position in Albany. We wouldn't want to live in Albany but in an outlying suburb. If anyone as any advice or links for kid-friendly areas to live, I would appreciate it. We have to make a decision soon! Thanks, Patricia
