Member News 

172 River Street   
On Wednesday, January 27 we welcomed American Grit Gallery, owned and operated by Daniel Breen. Breen loves the feel of downtown Troy and decided to open his long time dream of a combined Art Gallery and hair salon at 172 River Street. His breathtaking Americana photographs are framed using refurbished windows, a unique way to make the old new again. Stop in to view his photos and stay for a quick hair cut, this is certainly a business with a bright future.
