What do the houses in an "affluent" American suburb — in this case, near Albany, NY — look like? Here are some examples. The second two are very grand, aren't they?

Here's a picture of a house out in the country in upstate New York, north of Albany. I think it is very austere and puritan in appearance.

And here is a suburban Albany house where the homeowners are expressing their political opinions.

Finally, a sign I noticed in a window in downtown Albany.


  1. Great signs! Finally a sign of life.

  3. It's great to see the voices of protest are not being stifled. Here's something else that's inspiring. The story of something as innocuous as taking pictures in a neighborhood being banned and then...


    Power to the people!

  4. I love looking at houses from anywhere -- sounds like you're enjoying your stay in the USA!

  5. I'm now truly up to date. Love the photos and comments. Call before you go home -- E


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
