I am pleased to introduce Nigar Hale. She will be a regular contributor to the In The 518 section. Nigar (pronounced like ‘cigar’) is a marketing professional who lives right in the heart of The 518 in Saratoga County. She is the Vice President of Marketing and Membership Development for the Chamber of Southern Saratoga County and Founder and CEO of Blue Pepper Strategies, Inc., a content marketing consulting firm dedicated to small business.
The 518 extends south along the Hudson Valley and north to the Canadian border. The most heavily populated area is in the Capital Region. We’ll begin by posting articles about interesting people, places and things (lots of food!) in and around the Capital Region.
There are a lot of things that make this area of New York unique that we want to share with you. With that in mind, Nigar and I would love to hear what you think makes The 518 interesting. Is there a restaurant, local specialty food shop or artisan that you think we should check out? Or maybe there’s an interesting festival, museum or attraction you think we should know about. If so, please email Nigar at email@example.com.
Thanks for reading!
