Alley Action and Taylor Apartment tenants to paint mural under Congress Street Bridge

On Saturday, April 10 beginning at 10 a.m. tenants from the Troy Housing Authority's Taylor Apartments and volunteers from the Alley Action project will be painting a mural by the basketball and picnic area under the Congress Street Bridge.

Sid Fleisher and Barbara Nelson have been working on the Alley Action program in Troy over the past few years, and completed a book in 2006 called "The Troy Alley Improvement Project". The project encourages people to take ownership of their neighborhoods through community action, and they have organized several of these paint-by-number style murals.

The wall has already been cleaned and primed with the help of the Rensselaer County Jail work release program, and the main part of the drawing was applied to the wall last night. More information is available at, or stop by tomorrow and see the painting in action for yourself. Below is a flier with more information.
