Newsy Tidbits In & Around Glens Falls to Catch Up On
There’s a Mystery Chair in City Park
A chair with a hand-painted portrait of a young girl has recently appeared in City Park, close to the Crandall Public Library, and reportedly no one knows where it came from. According to News10 ABC, a library employee saw a truck deliver the item, but no one else appears to have any information. There is also a painting on the back of the chair, depicting a silhouette of what looks like a father and daughter walking along a path in the woods.
Stop by LARAC & Check Out the New Exhibit
While you’re in City Park to see the mystery chair, pop into LARAC to see their new exhibit (hours Monday to Saturday, 10am to 3pm, and until 6pm on Thursdays). The LARAC Members Show showcases, you guessed it, their members, who offer a wide variety of artistic talent, and the exhibit will be up through the end of the month.
Electric Bikes on the Bike Path?
According to a recent Facebook post from Warren County, electric bikes may be a possibility on the Warren County Bikeway. The Warren County Board of Supervisors Public Works Committee discussed the issue at a May 25 meeting, and a tentative plan was approved to allow “e-bikes,” pending review by the County Attorney’s Office.
