Building Blocks
(clockwise from top left) Long-neglected and now mired in controversy, St. Joseph's Church on Albany's Ten Broeck Street nonetheless got a boost when the Historic Albany Foundation received $300,000 in state money for renovations on the structure; a Boston-based community development firm embarked on a project to revitalize dilapidated buildings on Grand Street in Albany; the Dunkin' Donuts on the corner of Lark Street and Madison Avenue in Albany disappeared literally overnight, as the store was razed and then rebuilt; with one section of Albany's Pearl Street in a state of decay, Arbor Hill residents protested the opening of the Hudson River Walkway and the mayor's limited focus on revitalizing downtown; lengthy construction delays and budget overruns were all but forgotten when the new Amtrak station opened in Rensselaer on Sept. 22; Troy residents protested that they would rather see Eckerd refurbish the vacant, 89-year-old former Freihofer's bakery than demolish it to construct a big box.
