    Carmen J. Viglucci brought me back to the streets of downtown Albany decades before I was born. As a Capital Region native, I'm always interested in books like this that showcase my hometown area. It turns out that a coworker's uncle is mentioned in the book, too! I enjoyed reading Mr. Viglucci's stories. I laughed out loud a few times. It was a super quick read, but it wasn't the most well written book. It could have used a bit more editing and finesse. All in all, though, I liked it and I reco Carmen J. Viglucci brought me back to the streets of downtown Albany decades before I was born.

    It was interesting reading about my family. Many puzzle pieces were fitted together while reading this book. ;-)
