LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo is turning heads in shops and cafes in the Adirondacks this week as he takes a vacation with his daughters and girlfriend, Food Network star Sandra Lee.
The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/vJgti4 ) that Cuomo and Lee were spotted shopping in Lake Placid and Saranac Lake Monday night and Tuesday. The family also skied at Whiteface Mountain.
They're staying at a house in Lake Placid. Jon Hochschartner of Lake Placid, recently arrested at an Occupy Wall Street protest in Manhattan, told the Enterprise that he saw Cuomo in the Lake Placid grocery where he works.
He said he thought about confronting Cuomo on his austerity policies, but lost his nerve and just bagged the governor's groceries. Cuomo and Lee have been frequent visitors to the Adirondacks.
