    One of my favorite posters shows a simple map of the Adirondacks, showing many of the towns and hamlets throughout. The caption reads: "New York City will never amount to much. It's too far away from Tupper Lake."

    I can't believe a Yankee fan just called the Red Sox "haughty!" You may have to take some ribbing here for a while, some of us are still not at the "acceptance" phase of our mourning yet.

    The day after game 7 I rented Anger Management which is among other things a 2 hour tribute to the magical Yankees.

    Grady Little was an idiot.

    Hello and welcome.

    Here's a "z" in case you were looking for one.

    Greetings. Make a wish.

    Sounds like good school choices. There are other good choices in the MIDWEST, too.

    Ever been to Coxsackie? I spent a month there one night...

    I've looked at Ohio State because my brother and nephew live in Columbus, but I kind of want to be near home. NYC is 2 and a half hours, B-Lo is 4 hours, and Ithaca is 2. So although I like it out there and would love being in a Big 10 environment (go bucks!), I'd miss my dog too much--these past fours years going to school in DC were tough enough!

    As far as Coxsackie goes, it's maybe 40 miles south of Albany and with all the times I've driven my the exit on the Thruway, nothing has compelled me to stop. I try to steer clear of locations with names similar to viruses.

    -Really, then you not really living life.

    & are you living in Alb NY, or Blabany NY.

    Oh, I'm in Albany--the heart of Tech Valley...I wonder, based on the article in today's Buffalo News, if the technology investment in the area will help bring people back to the city, or just encourage more sprawl. Personally, I hope it brings people back, but I'm biased since I've lived here my whole life and have an aversion to cookie cutter houses that have vinyl siding chimneys.

    I think it's an Indian - excuse me, Native American - name.

    There are some really nice historic buildings in Coxsackie, plus the Bronck Museum - the 17th (?) century home of a Dutch family.

    I was just kidding about Coxsackie!! I'm sure I've been through at some point in time. It's probably a nice place, and very historic (given that so much of the Hudson Valley/Capial District is). I've just never explored. Having said that, I'm off to see Coxsackie AND Tupper Lake....just kidding.

    Albany is tech valley??? I guess i just really associate it with State Government....

    Did you look into the Masters program at SUNY ESF at Syracuse... the Landscape Architecture might work for you... as you can pursue different avenues within the general structure.

    Welcome! Went to grad school in historic preservation but would not be preservation planner b/c there are way too many hysterical people out there. Plus, the money is not as good as transportation planning. It is a fun study, but you have to work for a place that actually values h.p., otherwise you are spinning your wheels for nothing.

    thanks, for the heads up. It's interesting to read about everyones experiences and try to relate them to what I want to do. Although, it's been my understanding from the forums that where you go and what you study isn't all that important and that experience is really key. We'll see where I end up...
