Let's start this ABC Along where it all begins for me. **
A is for Albany, NY.
Born there. Raised there. Escaped from there. Got married there.
Albany is very much a company town with the business being government. The above could be called company headquarters.
In the summer after I graduated from high school, I worked in downtown Albany. I spent many lunchtimes sitting on a park bench looking at this view of the Capitol. I was 18 and on my way to college in NYC--I knew my future wouldn't be in Albany. But little did I realize that Albany would never leave me.
**My ABC Along 2009 won't be very fiber-related. I'm going to focus on NYS and NYC. However, at times, both fiber and city/state will be meeting up with each other.
