America’s Largest Walmart Is Right Here In the Capital Region

The Wal-Mart Supercenter at Crossgates Commons is the most super of them all. From the street, you would never know it. But once you explore the spacious 2 story interior of the Wally World at Crossgates Commons you know it is a vast expanse of food, toys, beef jerky, electronics, pajama pants, yellow dot specials, and more. And all that space makes our Albany Wal-Mart the largest in the United States according to at nearly 260,00 square feet of shopping space, it dwarfs the average Wal-Mart store by about 90,000 square feet. Look at it this way: a good-sized house has 2,000 square feet. That means this store has the space of 130 good size homes! That's crazy!

Not Cicadas-Thousands of These Insects Invading Cap Region

It's only when you get up close that you notice the gypsy moth caterpillars covering the trees. There's a huge infestation happening throughout the Capital Region and especially in Saratoga and Warren Counties.

Your Best Shot: Turkey vulture is watching

Cliff Prewencki of Delmar says: "As I was performing my usual lawn chores one recent evening, I was startled by the sudden presence of a flock of turkey vultures. One sat placidly on top of a nearby telephone pole while the others flitted among the trees or simply sat in silence on the branches. They must be shy creatures, for when my weeding took me just a couple of feet closer they vanished as silently as they came."
