Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater. A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. I plan on walking on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can contact me at:

6/24/2012 - DE Docent in a shoe

Before starting tours my wife and I walked a three mile loop through Albany. We ran across this year’s sculpture in the streets exhibit - "Stand in the Sole of Albany". We were pleasantly surprised by the picture of the SLATER.  I had to sit in the Sole of Albany.

This Dutch shoe was by local artist Tony Iadicicco, "...We wanted this piece to carry education, hence paralleling the concept from our Dutch history to our beautiful Hudson River depicted through a painting of the USS Slater DE766 battleship [Destroyer Escort]". (source Sculpture in the Streets Brochure).
