It is almost October, and that means winter is just around the corner. And who knows how long it will last? For many families, there comes a time when everyone needs a break from the cold and the sloppy streets, but warm weather holidays are often not in the budget. What is possible is an in-town getaway, a weekend at an Albany area hotel.
The tongue-twister "unique New York" could easily have been coined by someone in the construction industry. The state is the last in the union to allow construction workers injured on the job to sue property owners and contractors directly. Other states handle these complaints through workers' compensation, but not New York. New York has the Scaffold Law, enacted in 1885 and still going strong.
