BH: Sandra Foyt signs and discusses, 100 Things to Do in Albany Before You Die, Saturday, March 2nd at 3pm.

The Hudson River and lush forests frame Albany, while its dynamic political scene contrasts with a nostalgic charm as authentically American as apple pie. New York City may be the Big Apple, but “Smallbany” tempts with apple picking, warm cider donuts, and the adult-only flavors of farm cideries. 100 Things to Do in Albany Before You Die reveals the beauty, excitement, and surprises of New York’s Capital City.

Ever seen a building that defies description? Meet the Egg, Albany’s architectural wonder. Walk amidst giants at the Empire State Plaza, where one of the country’s tallest buildings reaches for the skies. And within its confines, find an art collection so stunning it belongs in a museum.

In a city infamous for the Capitol building’s haunted Million Dollar staircase, there’s also the colossal presence of the largest Walmart Supercenter in the US and the world’s largest indoor roller-skating rink. And yet, the immense is offset by the enchantment of mini hot dog stands, thrilling water ski shows, and retro drive-in movie theaters.

Penned by local travel writer Sandra Foyt, this book isn’t just for tourists. Both new visitors and longtime residents will find a bucket list jampacked with insider tips, covering well-trodden paths and the delightfully obscure.
