As I drove into and back out of the city centre on Western Avenue, I noticed a number of fine old mansions and homes. These are a couple of the smaller houses located not too far from the Holiday Inn Express where I was staying. It shows a construction styles that are common throughout New England and New York.
The Metro 20 Diner has a decor that is a throwback to the 1950's and it's large seating area is quite bright and clean.
The service was fast and the food was good, so I was quite happy with my breakfast stop before leaving Albany for points further west in the state! Nothing fancy, just a good helping of 2 eggs over easy (with a big bottle of Tabasco sauce!), a thick slice of ham with mustard, hash brown potatoes, whole wheat toast and coffee. It really hit the spot and only cost US$5.50 before a tip!
