If you grew up in the Capital Region, chances are you visited Hoffman's Playland in Loudonville as a kid. When it closed back in 2014, it left a void for a lot of kids and adults in the area. Even though it relocated to Huck Finn's in Albany, the land where it once stood was abandoned. Now it looks like something may finally occupy that space.
More houses will be going up in the Colonie/Loudonville area. Another farm has been sold to accommodate the forty-lot subdivision off of Albany Shaker Road. The developer says they will pay homage to the area by naming it after its historic roots.
These two popular businesses are only 2.8 miles apart and are actually on the same road in Latham and into Loudonville. Both are very reputable and now they will be merging under the same management to offer more services.
If I were to hit the PowerBall jackpot, I would want to still have a house here in the Capital Region. That would be the only way I could afford this $1.7 million mansion in Loudonville. This is an 8700 square foot home featuring a beautiful outdoor oasis. It has 6 custom master suites, 6 radiant heat master bathrooms, four fireplaces, and a grand foyer with marble throughout the house.
Every year after the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade is the fantastically adorable "National Dog Show." While you were watching, did you realize not only that one of the dogs was from the area but that it almost took away Best in Show?
I realize that wild animals are all around us. They live nearby in the woods behind neighborhoods and homes, but we don't always see them during the day walking up and down driveways in the Capital Region.
When I was a kid, my only dream was to be an astronaut. For Halloween I was the night sky (even though people called me Merlin all night), my science fair projects were always space-related (homemade solar system, space ice cream, the moon), so when I heard about this new addition to a local college, I couldn't tell you how excited I was.
