As Mayor Kathy Sheehan looks on, Senator Chuck Schumer says historic designation is the key to unlocking vital federal Historic Tax Credits for an ambitious adaptive reuse of the “Nipper Building” at 991 Broadway.

It’s one of the defining characteristics of the Albany skyline: the Old RCA Victor mascot Nipper, who still sits atop the former RCA Building. Visiting today, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer says the pup has become a regional icon. A new development plan would transform the so-called "Nipper Building" into downtown residential and commercial space.

  Josh Rosenthal is a unique, compelling individual who left his big time job in the hallowed halls of the music industry to start an independent, boutique label, Tompkins Square Records, focusing on reissues of important but overlooked roots artists and new records by both icons and Americana up and comers.

He developed his taste, in part, while living in Albany and attending the university in the 1980s. His new book, The Record Store of the Mind, even features scenes at the city’s legendary punk haunt, QE2, as well as Valentine’s, where he re-discovered Charlie Louvin, eventually launching the country music pioneer on a second career. It is part memoir, part listening list and an inspirational read for anyone with ear for the winding stream of American music.

Rosenthal will read from his book at 7PM tonight in the Local History Room of the Albany Public Library - the Washington Avenue Branch in Albany.
