Valentine’s now a pile of rubble

By Patrick Dodson


An update to kill your mood this week – The former Valentine’s building has officially been knocked down into a pile of rubble. Crushed like a bug in the ground. The walls of the “Nancy” bathroom can still be seen, but “Sid” is no more.

Albany Medical Center continues its neighborhood revitalization in the area.
