When the state announced earlier this month that ride sharing companies like Uber and Lyft will finally be allowed to operate Upstate, some of us in the Glens Falls region were cautiously excited, but still wondering whether ride sharing would make it north of Saratoga. 

Wonder no more!

You're probably familiar with the $10 million Revitalization grant at this point. The city was awarded a $10 million grant to help revitalize a large portion of its downtown area last fall. There have been many ideas tossed around town on what the city should do with the grant, and residents are getting antsy to find out how the funds will be spent. 

A new development group, City Revitalization & Advancement Partnership, has proposed the newest plan that has caught the attention of some local officials.

The newly renovated lobby of the Queensbury Hotel is a charming blend of old and new. Walking in, you are greeted by a cheerful flower arrangement on a round black table and pristine white columns that soar to the open mezzanine. Large, two-story windows flood the lobby with natural light and the original terrazzo floor gleams with polish under the original brass chandelier. 

To one side, modern wingback chairs and an oversized tufted bench sit in contemplation of a cheerful fire burning in the large grate under a century-old painting of Cooper's Cave and The Last of the Mohicans. Throughout the lobby, furniture groupings in blacks and grays with touches of red and gold pull the 1920's black, white, and gold terrazzo floor seamlessly into the 21st Century.
