Albany street being 'renamed' for landmark eatery

ALBANY (AP) -- A street in downtown Albany is being "renamed" to honor a local restaurant that's marking its 100th year in business.

Mayor Gerald Jennings is holding a ceremony late Thursday morning near Jack's Oyster House on State Street to symbolically rename the street "Jack's Oyster House Way" in recognition of the landmark restaurant's contributions to downtown Albany over the past century.

Jack Rosenstein opened Jack's Oyster House in January 1913. Twenty-four years later, he moved the business a few blocks to a new location at the foot of State Street, just down the hill from the state Capitol.

Jack's son, Arnold, ran the restaurant for years, and Arnold's son, Brad, still carries on the family tradition. The restaurant has been a favorite gathering spot for politicians, lobbyists and visiting dignitaries.
