Wolf Road dumps: one down, one up

That old abandoned gas station on the corner of Wolf and Albany Shaker Roads in Colonie (right across from the Times Union) has long been labeled as an "eyesore." An underground fuel tank ruptured many years ago, turning the property into a mini Love Canal. No one would touch it, given the cleanup and liability costs.

Apparently, those concerns have been laid to rest and a developer is ready to roll with his new plans for the now-valuable land. The old garage is being torn down as I write this, all to make way for.......


Great; just what Colonie needed. Maybe we should have left the original toxic dump instead of just replacing it with a new one.
