Albany, NY – A formerly abandoned garage and gas station was recently razed and turned into a park, which, for motorists traveling I-90, is the first thing they see as they enter the streets of the City of Albany. The centerpiece of that park is a statue of Albany war hero, Henry Johnson. The bust was dedicated this morning by Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings. Capital District Bureau Chief Dave Lucas reports.
