    216 Lancaster St Albany 12210 United States - Center Square
    Someone placed 4 large contractor bags in front of our home, next to a leaf bag we put out last night. They were not there when we put the trash out last night, nor when we brought our can and bin in at 8:30 am.

    This is my annual request to have the flowers placed on city monuments on Memorial Day removed before the fall apart and decay. This one lasted about two days, but now it's a bunch of decaying flowers and leaves rotting on the Soldier's & Sailors monument. Not a fitting tribute. If flowers are placed, they should subsequently be removed
  • Street Repair Archived
    Lark Street At Lancaster Street Albany, New York - Center Square
    The roadbed appears to have failed where it meets the granite curbing and belgian block crosswalk. Some vehicles swerve to miss this deep pothole, but others - especially emergency vehicles, trucks and buses - hit the potholes with a force that causes my house to shake 1/2 block to the west. Would it be possible to fill the potholes - at least temporarily - with crushed stone and/or place an electronic sign on Lark to urge and monitor reduced speed?

    226 Lancaster Street Albany, New York - Center Square
    This is the 3rd time I've reported this issue - a large part of the tree is dead and could fall on the sidewalk or on a person. I called DGS today on my way to work because there was a DGS (not forestry) crew limbing a tree about 50 feet away on Willett. Michelle "could not find my previous reports" (# 2000096 and # 1866494) but said she would try to do something about it.. The branch was still there when I came home from work.

    I applaud the city for milling and paving State Street - and will be glad when it's done. New sidewalks and crosswalks are great. But how exactly is one supposed to navigate this intersection as a pedestrian? It's like an obstacle course of traffic signals and waste receptacles. Can this be reconfigured?

    Long, deep tire ruts in the lawn. This will need to be repaired in the spring.

    I would like to request maintenance of tree pits. Central avenue side is mostly weeds, as I pruned the suckers last year, but Washington avenue side is more than I can handle. Thanks!

    Scrawls on 2 panels of garage door, also on door to courtyard.
  • 23 Henry Johnson Boulevard Albany, NY 12210, USA - Central Avenue
    Dead squirrel in parking space near 13 HEnry Johnson. Maybe someone can pick it up before it gets squished.
  • Washington Park Road Albany, New York - Central Avenue
    The wreath placed on Memorial Day was picked clean of carnations the day after the holiday. The foam ring, a few ferns, and a red, white and blue ribbon remain. A sad memorial to those who gave their last full measure of devotion.
  • 40 Central Avenue Albany, NY 12206, USA - Central Avenue
    Central BID maintains tree on Central Ave side of bank. This side seems so sad!
  • 210 Lancaster Street Albany, NY 12210, USA - Center Square
    The Corporate Challenge messes up traffic for 4 hours but the mobile Command Center has been taking up 5 parking spaces for 24. And now it's spewing noxious exhaust fumes into the neighborhood. And it appears to be devoid of cops. What the deal?

    At least one coal cover (round metal plate in sidewalk) and the uptown-facing side of the tree surround in front of 210 Lancaster have been tagged "AUSUM" with white marker.

  • 17 Henry Johnson Boulevard Albany, New York - Central Avenue
    The parking lot between 17 Henry Johnson and TruImages barber shop at the corner of HJ and Washington has not been cleared. All other property owners on the block have shoveled. Apparently Kirkman 3hree Advertising in Delmar is collecting payments from those who park there, but can't hire someone to shovel the sidewalk. (The number listed for parking inquiries is 518-439-7638.) Reported in December, see Issue #856130.
