This wooded glen in Albany looks like it’s miles from the city. But in fact it’s on Franklin Avenue, just off Airport Road and I-5, surrounded by houses on one side and a trailer park on the other. And it may not look quite so sylvan for long.
Somebody who evidently doesn’t get around much asked me the other day whether Panera Bread was or was not opening a restaurant in Albany. Well, they’ve been building the place for months, the signs have been up since last year, and the restraurant will open by the end of the month.
