Hundreds of people showed up Tuesday morning for the opening of the Albany Carousel. That means you’ll be treated to thousands of photos and videos on social and various other media. Here’s a collection of sidelights.
This was an extraordinary occasion. A drone was flying overhead, so somewhere you can probably find aerial views of this big day in downtown Albany. Lots of people. Speeches by the mayor and others. Acknowledgement of dozens of people who had a hand in bringing this project, including the $6.5 million building, to completion. Thanks all around, and plenty of applause.
Wendy Kirbey, whose idea the whole thing was, told me that when it started 15 years ago, “You thought I was crazy.” Yes, I did. And it wasn’t the first or only time I was wrong. (hh)
