Snapshot Travel Guide
Hoosick Falls, New York

A curious village with a tenacious history, Hoosick Falls is located in the town of Hoosick, between the Capital Region of New York and Bennington, VT. Originally settled in the mid-1700s, it was torched during French and Indian War. Settlers returned and rebuilt, and it became an industry powerhouse during the Victorian era.

A curious village with a tenacious history, Hoosick Falls is located in the town of Hoosick, between the Capital Region of New York and Bennington, VT. Originally settled in the mid-1700s, it was torched during French and Indian War. Settlers returned and rebuilt, and it became an industry powerhouse during the Victorian era. Like many once-prosperous industrial towns in the Hudson Valley, it eventually declined in the mid-1900s. But this sleepy village is on the verge of a major wake-up and shake-up, with a concerted effort in economic development currently under way.

WDIJW? Water, Water Every Hare

Warner Brothers 1950 Looney Tunes cartoon, “Water, Water Every Hare” features Bugs Bunny, an evil scientist, and a hulking, red, shaggy monster, “Rudolf” (inspiration to Jim Henson, maybe?). While the story line is almost a match to another of Bugs’ trips to the mad scientist’s castle, “Hair-Raising Hare,” this delight — found intact on a damaged hard drive and contributed to archive.org — is UNCUT!

Letter to the Editor:
North Adams resident questions Rep. Neal’s opposition to free tax filing.

Editor’s Note: This letter was sent to the Greylock Glass after months of waiting for a response from the Berkshire Eagle. The author sent it to us on the eve of a visit by Richard Neal’s challenger, Alex Morse, to a local issues political group. He thought our readers might be interested.

April 9th, 2019

Letter To the Editor:

I joined many residents of Rep. Richard Neal’s district in applauding his actions requesting release of President Trump’s tax returns.  After all, all presidents previously had released their taxes, there is no law restricting release due to any IRS audit.  So Rep. Neal was doing his job as expected. Great!

Will Call #71: Jennifer Trainer on Museum Town

In this episode, we speak with Jennifer Trainer, director of the documentary, Museum Town which released earlier in 2019, debuting at SXSW. Museum Town tells the story of MASS MoCA, arguably the United States’ most expansive contemporary art space, but it does a lot more besides. This flick situates the museum within the various contexts of history, culture, and economic development. With memories and observations contributed by political figures, local business owners, the general public, artists, and the architects of the original idea, Museum Town takes an unflinching look back at how their instincts were, in many ways, spot on, but at the same time missed the mark here or there.

North Adams City Council ’19 Elections: Jessica Sweeney

Thanks for checking out our elections coverage. We try to cover at least one race a year in an in-depth, meaningful way, and 2019 finds us at it again. The only difference is that James Kennedy, artist and founder of the much-loved “Unsung Eats” column here at the Glass, has wrested control of the interview-ometer away from the editors this time around. In an act of tremendous ambition (or lunacy) he committed to interviewing ALL the candidates for North Adams City Council (assuming they all got back to him). We hope you enjoy this campaign season series, brought to you as a service to the democratic process and the peaceful transition of power.
