(Before It's News)

Sunday was a beautiful day in Niskayuna, so after going to campus to deal with some paperwork, I went off to a park to take some pictures. There’s a town park down on River Road that sits on a high and scenic bluff above the Mohawk, so I figured I’d give that a look. And, indeed, the view of the river is pretty.

But there are also these:

Apparently, I live near the set of a cult British SF show.

That’s a fat piece of PVC pipe, painted bright green, rising about 7-8′ from the ground. And there are a couple dozen of these dotting the hillside in the park.

I don’t really have a clue what these could be for, but none of the thoughts I do have are particularly good. One is that there’s something buried under the hill that needs ventilation, and given that this is just down the road from GE’s research labs and a DoE-funded nuclear power research lab, I don’t like to think about what they might’ve used as landfill back in the day.

And, of course, the other obvious choice is that I’ve somehow landed in an episode of The Prisoner, because these really do have a cheesy British sci-fi sort of vibe…
