Lark Street Cat Needs a Home

Trinity United Methodist on Lark Street has been sheltering a young female cat for over a year; you might say that she adopted them, not the other way around. "Trinity" as she has come to be known, is not completely feral but she is not a house cat and is a bit skittish. She is a beautiful tabby that would surely thrive with a patient & gentle family that would allow her to come out of her shell at her own pace. During her time at the church, she has shown that she is able to warm up to people and has earned her keep by catching mice, which she does very well.

Unfortunately, caring for "Trinity" has become too much for church & a new home is needed for her. Because of her shy & skittish behavior, her chances of adoption at a shelter are slim. Trinity Methodist Church believes that this mouser tabby would do nicely in a store or factory with a mouse problem.

If you are interested in "Trinity" or know of a placement that would work for her, please contact Trinity Methodist Church at

September 1st Friday with Bob Gullie

The Lark Street BID would like to invite you to come celebrate Albany's  1st Friday 5th Anniversary this September 2nd from 5-9pm. We will be featuring artwork from local artist Bob Gullie. Join us for this special show with one of the Capital Region's well known artists.

Silver Cliff Divers
Born in 1951 in South Bend, Indiana, Bob is known for his dreamlike photography and mixed media collages that incorporate surreal elements. His photography is beautifully hand-tinted which allows him to direct and refine the image to better suit his vision. Through mixed media collages, Bob has even greater freedom to create his own world. A local artist located in Cohoes, NY, Bob's collection of artwork being featured at the BID is called "Pieces of Me: Heart to Hand" and refers to the way Bob Gullie uses his emotion when putting together his collages.
