You may think you've seen everything The Hyde has to offer, but did you know about the colorful campsite being set up on the museum's front lawn?

New York State's Department of Transportation is in the process of repairing some bridges throughout the Capital Region, and is on the verge of deciding whether or not to completely remove others.

In and around Albany, mini hot dogs reign with Gus's Hogs, Famous Lunch, and Hot Dog Charlie's. Up farther north, larger, more traditional sized hot dogs seem to be the preference. 

Small or large, Capital Region residents from Albany up to Glens Falls love their dogs slathered with meat sauce, diced onions, and classic mustard.

We have to ask - who has the best hot dogs in the Glens Falls Region?

Artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude are renowned for their large-scale environmental installations that the two put together throughout the world. In 1976, for example, the duo created a visually impressive art piece known as "Running Fence," which featured a 24.5-mile nylon curtain, as seen below. To celebrate these artists and their memorable works, The Hyde Collection will feature an exhibition titled "Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection" from May 15 to June 26.
