Sunrise Park: Checking on progress

Written May 2nd, 2018 by Hasso Hering

The bike and I took a detour down Thurston Street from Queen Avenue this week. And as expected, the Albany city project to do something for the Sunrise Park neighborhood was well under way.


Rebuilding Sunrise and two streets

Written March 16th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Sunrise Park and sections of two major streets — Hill and Oak — are about to be rebuilt, totaling more than $3 million in city public works spending in South Albany this year.


Sunrise upgrade: Pretty soon now

If you’re wondering what happened to the long-gestating plans to renovate Albany’s Sunrise Park, wonder no more. The city parks department hopes to call for bids on the project by the first week of February.


Sunrise Park: Renovation in sight

Written April 17th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

The renovation of Sunrise Park, first considered in 2013, is finally scheduled to take place this year now that the city of Albany has obtained the required permits and spent $38,000 in federal antipoverty grant money to make up for the loss of a patch of so-called “wetlands.”

Written June 28th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

You’re looking at the playground in Albany’s Sunrise Park.  But it’s more than that. It’s also an exhibit in the story of how bureaucracy expands when it’s allowed to distort a well-intended law.


More ‘wetlands’ insanity

Written February 21st, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Somebody ought to add up all the public money that has been wasted over the years on studying or “mitigating” phony wetlands, that is, lands that are neither wet nor serve any of the functions of true wetlands. I’m thinking of this because in Albany now, we have yet another case.
