Notified About

  • 42 N Allen St Albany, New York - Pine Hills

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    70-86 Brevator St Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Melrose
    Multiple potholes on Brevator going from Western to Washington Ave. Potholes are very deep on Driver side.
    You are to maneuver over 5 potholes.
    I have now replaced 4 low profile tires are $400 each.
    My dealer said I have a gash on the passenger side wheel now and the drivers side wheels. I drive Western from 87 to New Scotland and New Scotland to Washington Ave each day. Pothole near Allen and Madison has already been reported.
    I am sure that is the hold that caused the gash. Please fix asap. I live in Loudonville and park in a garage each night. I park in a huge VA lot. The only cause for my tire issues over the last 3 years are the City of Albany Potholes. PLEASE FIX ASAP.
  • 188 W Lawrence St Albany Ny 12203 Usa - Pine Hills
    The new owners of the house at 188 West Lawrence St are attempting to turn this two family dwelling into 4 or 6 separate studio apartments. I live directly across the street at 197 and have been living at this address for the last 30 years. I am not aware that the new owners have obtained the necessary variance or building permits to make this change. And as far as I know, none of the neighbors around here have been consulted on such a major change to our neighborhood.
  • 84 N Allen St Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Pine Hills

    84 N Allen St Albany, NY, 12203, USA

    5/27/2019 - So, this person can do whatever they want apparently. No repercussions. No police warning. No tickets for breaking noise ordinance. 530 am the other day. Revving the engine. RIGHT NOW IT'S GOING ON. They just took a car with no plates around the block. Isn't that illegal? The car is behind a grey Impala. This is the tenth time this has been reported.

    Are you going to tell me to call again this time to? Did that. Still nothing. What do we have to do to actually see police enforce the laws they're supposed to uphold?

    Previous post below

    Until 945pm in this location a vehicle with no plates in the driveway revs their engine at a high rpm for almost 20 minutes and then plays a deep bass line music selection in the interval. It continues like this, revving engine and music, revving engine and then music continually long past the 8pm cutoff for noise. This is the only person in a two block radius making the night unbearable for the rest of the neighborhood. It's nice to see my tax money go towards police not doing anything.

    City employees disrespect neighborhood
  • Pothole Archived
    Breavtor St Albany, New York - Melrose
    Breavator st, while only just over half a mile long there was over 70 patches/holes on it in various states of disrepair. That number is only on one side of the road It is ridiculous for this road to be in this condition.
  • 799 Chestnut St Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Pine Hills
    Chestnut St between No. Main & West Lawerence Sts is over run with skunks,rcaoons & possums. They are digging up lawns and plants as they make the trip to 799 Chestnut St for the cat food buffet. They are still feeding strays! Can this be stopped??
  • 841 Western Avenue Albany New York - Melrose
    On the south side of Western Ave just west of the stop light at Brevator st in the dirt between the street and the sidewalk are 2 metal poles cut off just above ground level. They have jagged edges and are difficult to see. They are right where people board and disembark from the bus. If stepped on someone can turn an ankle, trip or cut themselves. There are sight impaired people who get off and on the bus at this stop. The poles need to be dug out or buried. They will be very hard to see when the leaves or snow cover them.
  • Brevator Street Acknowledged
    Brevator Street Albany, New York - Melrose
    The entirety of Brevator St is needs to be repaved. The potholes the filled in April have reopened and new small ones have appeared. As this street is used by the fire department regularly and many other cars on a daily basis there has to be a better solution to pot filling or just to repave it.
  • 465 Western Avenue Albany, New York - Pine Hills
    Every. Single. Weekend. Loud music, screeching, stomping and copious amounts of banging and rowdiness from the 2nd floor rear apartment. I have spoken to the landlord, I have reported to the local police, and even tried to be loud in retaliation, and honestly I don't know what else to do. This is a building inhabited by working professionals, with the exception of this one tenant who has refused to keep the noise down despite numerous complaints and warnings from the landlord. To be kept up after midnight every Friday and Saturday by a gaggle of drunk college kids with no awareness and respect for their surroundings is infuriating. Please help.
  • Pothole Acknowledged
    85 Brevator St Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Melrose
    This is only one of the several potholes on the street. My boyfriend's car was in the shop and had $1,600 worth of damages to his vehicle for hitting one of these potholes an accident....
  • 802 Washington Ave Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Pine Hills
    Blasting music happens regularly and only stops briefly when police cars show up. Lack of consequences enable inhabitants to do this every couple of weeks with no consideration how many hours neighbors are up dealing with noise.
