A Different Side : Early Morning Downtown Albany

If busy downtown environments intimidate you or give you, I would encourage you to visit one in the early morning hours.

There is something so calming about the stillness and near silence of place that in just a few short hours will be clogged with commotion.

I had that opportunity this morning in Downtown Albany.

Reminded me of an early morning visit to Mid Town Manhattan quite a few years ago.

Can you imagine Time Square nearly empty?  I would never have thought it could happen with how much of a cluster fuck it is all day and all night.  But strolling down 7th Avenue around 545 AM into that historic patch of real estate , I found next to nobody.  It was like something out I AM Legend.    I felt like I could appreciate it more.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
