Looking back on the Quadricentennial

Today's Times Union has an article assessing the 2009 Hudson Quadricentennial commemorations.

While last year's events certainly were not as large or elaborate as those held in 1909, but there were some memorable moments. For me, it was the Hudson River Heritage Festival held along the Corning Preserve in September.

I have to say that I rather miss the Quad year already and I would certainly enjoy more events recalling Albany history in the future.

  1. I wish they would do this every summer, but I realize it takes so much man (woman) power and money to make it look like it should. I have many pictures of the area if you would like me to send them to you. I'll check back in a few days to see what you'd like.
