  • Illegal Trash Archived
    81 Kent St Albany, NY 12206, USA - Albany
    2nd time this month I'm asking for this to be addressed. This driveway has looked exactly like this same bag of trash in the same spot since October of 2018. Can you please hold the landlord responsible to have his tenants clean up behond themselves.
  • 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.
  • Morris Street Albany, New York - Pine Hills
    Since when do valets determine where people can and can't park in Albany? I tried to go to the bank today and pulled into a legal parking space and the valet told me I can't park there unless I'm using valet service and going to the pulmonary office. I told him I was parked in a residential space with a residential permit and was going to the bank and he started following me and calling me rude for parking where I have every right to park. He said, Take it up with Albany Med if you don't like it. They decide what we can do." Where is AMC's accountability? Do they now supersede the Mayor's office? Parking regulations? Citizen rights? The valets and residents are stuck in the middle of a worsening problem that has to be resolved at a different level, and soon we'll have snow emergency parking which will be an even worse problem with AMC using all of these spaces when they have a garage a block away.
  • 55 S Lake Ave Albany 12203, United States - Pine Hills
    The historically appropriate ballards and chains are not being used at this entrance. Instead, we have temporary yellow plastic highway barriers, as well as the temporary steel barriers. Ballard and chain system is attractive and wad put in place to provide functionality, while visually enhancing Washington Park. This is a major entrance point to the park, and should be kept in an attractive state, as other entrances are. Is there a reason for abandoning the ballard and chain system here?

  • 817 Lancaster St Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Pine Hills
    City employees disrespect neighborhood
  • 79 N Allen St Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Pine Hills
    This property owner throws full bread loaves and packs of hot dog buns, ripped up, into his side yard (located on Lancaster; the house is on the corner of Lancaster and N Allen), about 4x/wk. It has invited skunks, and one has absolutely taken up residence somewhere on our street. I smell it every day, all day.
    We've tried talking to him about it but I'm not certain he makes the correlation in his own head; in fact, we've seen other behavior that suggests some sort of cognitive issue or neurological decline (like mowing his sidewalk, back and forth).
    I'm hoping someone can talk to him, even if the bread isn't there at the moment - it gets eaten up in under an hour - because this skunk situation is terrible.
  • 799 Chestnut St Albany, NY, 12203, USA - Pine Hills
