Sounds crazy, I know... Troy isn't exactly a tourist hot-spot (though it was home to Kurt Vonnegut). The "purpose" of the trip was to determine whether or not this was a place we could potentially live, because RPI has a Historical Preservation program (and that's what K wants to study). We knew that there was an "Antique District," so that pretty much sold me on the trip, despite the fact that Troy didn't seem to have a whole lot else to offer us.
*speaking of music* I am currently listening to Tom Waits groan his way through "Hoist that Rag" and it is awesome. Add it to your iPod.
