Albany 30th Anniversary Pop-Up Tour

May 18, 2019

Join the Society for Commercial Archeology for a free members-only pop-up event in Albany, New York on May 18, 2019, as we retrace (more or less) our 1989 tour. Using the original program as our guide, we will hop in our cars, connect via cell phone, and see what is still there, what has changed and what has disappeared.

See Nipper, Albany’s famous mascot, the monster Art Deco Montgomery Ward first opened in 1929, remants of an origianal Carvel Ice Cream stand, a Mount Vernon-inspired motel, the Googie-Brutalist Empire State Plaza, the world’s longest corinthian colonnade on the NYS Education Building, and a great big bunch of ghost signs, neon signs and other historic roadside survivors.

We’ll meet at the base of the former Home Savings Bank at 11 North Pearl Street at 10:00AM. From there we’ll get our bearings, travel north on Pearl to Broadway, take Broadway up to Cohoes, take I-90 to East Greenbush, travel back to downtown Albany via historic Route 20, then up Central Ave. as far as time will allow.

Please note, this is a free-form event. There is no travel support, no accommodations, and no bus. We’ll meet, get our phones set up to conference, agree on photo stops and stroll points, have a nice retro lunch (probably at Jack’s), finish the tour and split up when time runs out.

Feel free to sign up without commitment and make suggestions.
