To the cast and crew members who are in Albany filming scenes for "Salt", why not see both sides of the Hudson while you're here - come across and visit Rensselaer, NY!
Want a great restaurant? The following are my favorite Rensselaer spots:
- Nicest Dinner: (steak, seafood, pasta): Casey's Restaurant, 77 Washington Ave (reservations: 518-463-3318)
- Best Pizza: Sliders, Third Ave. and Green St (behind City Hall)
- Best Sandwiches: Roasted Red Pepper, 600 N Greenbush Rd #8
- Best Chinese Takeout: Zenbu, 449 N Greenbush Rd
You can also visit us online: take a virtual tour of our historic register sites, learn more about local railroad history, or flash back 100 years to the days of travel by steamboat.
If you're online during the daylight, check on the peregrine falcons nesting under the Dunn Memorial Bridge. (The chicks should be hatching by the time you're wrapping up.)
