    Trashy. But congrats Maddalone & Associates for the new project on Dana- I'm sure you'll take great care of it!!

    As reported here many times in the past- there is a large section of standing water in front of 3 houses on Morris St. This happens every time it rains. The mayor knows about it and has explained that this is happening because this street has not been redone. Right. Got that. When are we addressing this flooding?? this would not be allowed to happen in Center Square but because it's Park South- the issue remains.

    I hope they can manage their fancy new building in development on Dana Ave since this one just keeps getting away from them...

    Since purchasing my home in the Park South neighborhood last year, I've admired Pat Kelly park at the intersection of Morris and Knox. It is always impeccably maintained... and padlocked. I've asked about it at the neighborhood association meetings on a number of occasions and got hushed murmured responses as to why that is, and who has access to this park.
    Over the weekend, I was walking my dog and to my great surprise- a HUMAN! In Pat Kelly Park- gardening! I quickly walked over to this person and from the other side of the fence said with excitement "Good morning! I've never seen anyone in this park!" The person ignored me. I tried again "Do you have the key?" "Yes Maam I do, " said the person, not making eye contact - then walking away, ending the conversation. Stunned , I continued on my walk, baffled that someone who somehow has a key and private access to a CITY PARK was being so rude.
    On my way back I asked from the other side of the fence "this is a city park, right?" the person refused to answer me and went skulking off behind the shed.
    This is not acceptable. What the heck is going on with Pat Kelly Park? If it's someone's private park and I am confused- please let me know. But if this is a city-owned park (as the most recent parcel map indicates) it needs to be open or there needs to be some avenue for gaining access to members of the community. Is this the Secret Garden?

    another bit of trash left in front of this building for a week +
  • 16 Morris St. Albany, New York - Park South
    This lot has been vacant for quite some time. Lately, there have been upwards of 7 cars parked in this lot on a regular basis and on weekends and during Washington Park events, more folks park in it (driving over sidewalks to access it).
    So my question is- is this a parking lot? Can I park in it? Since people are already using it as a parking lot- why doesn't the city pave it, clean it up and install meters to make it a convenient PAID lot for Lark St. visitors. Seems like a no brainer. It currently looks bad and has no clear purpose.

    it's not even funny how many times these people have received complaints about trash. the first picture is from 4/27 and the second is from today 4/30. The owners, Madallone and associates have plans for a big new apartment complex on Dana yet they can't even keep their current building under control. pathetic.

    These guys eat at Primal and would like you to know it! Trash has been there for 2 weeks. Also, if this does ever get checked out- maybe someone can address the large amounts of particle board, twigs branches and all other manner of flammables that have been stored on this front porch for at least a year.

    This concludes my series. Which was compiled over the course of one morning's short stroll (about half a block) from my house to Market 32 on 3/26/17. CITY OF ALBANY! Young folks like me who purchased their first homes in this city because we BELIEVE in Albany are quickly losing reasons to STAY here! When this kind of filth is allowed to happen on a regular basis and no one says anything- I might as well move to the burbs where dead beat landlords don't own all the real estate and never clean up!

    Maybe they're showing off how nicely they matched the color of the vinyl siding and their trash bins? STYLE!

    City of Albany has cleared Snow and Ice from sidewalk on Delaware Ave side of this building. But for those of us coming from Morris- I guess we'll just have to bring the snow dogs.
