    There are several re-occuring large and deep potholes along Notre Dame Drive between Holland and Vassar. It is extremely difficult to traverse this road without hitting one.

    My final postcard from the wild west that is the city of Albany-owned parking lot aka dump at the corner of Lark and Morris. What can I say? People drive on the NEW sidewalk to park here, the city doesn't tickets- thereby legitimizing this behavior and at the same time won't pave, install lights and meters as it does with its other parking lots. I won't even mention the plateless abandoned silver sedan that's been camped here since March and which I reported to dgs and the Albany pd.. because, why bother? Maybe it's time to call the land bank. That's what they do right? Take derelict properties out of the hands of irresponsible owners... Shame on the city of Albany for not even being able to manage a parking lot.

    Hi. There is now a terrible pothole on Notre Dame Ave, right in front of Albany Law School, that blew my tire when I hit it this morning. Due to the pothole being filled with water, I was unable to see how deep it was and thus did not try hard enough to avoid it. I probably hit it at 10-15 mph. I'll be going back out at lunch time in order to change the tire. This will likely cost me over $100 for a new tire.

    When discussing this with a few members of class before class started, I learned that another classmate had also just had the same experience at about the same time. I have no idea if any other students had the same experience, but in an otherwise random group of 10-15 people, we had two flat tires. I want to bring this to your attention so that it can be fixed ASAP. Thanks!

    Harassment by a city employee
    Man keeps banging on my door accusing me of doing work without a permit. He lives on street and spends too much time here all day most days. I am only painting and he keeps banging on my door threatening me. He is 40ish white male and he drives a white pick up truck. Looks like he may work for building Dept but he refused to give me a card when I asked him yesterday.

  • 260-296 Myrtle Ave Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Albany
    This overgrown stretch of sidewalk is along the fence line of the field at Hackett Middle School. The bushes and branches are obstructing the sidewalk making it difficult for walkers, bikers or those in a wheelchair/scooter to navigate this area. This sidewalk is utilized by Veteran patients, many of whom have physical limitations. It is also used by staff from the Albany VA & Albany Medical Center and students & staff of the middle school. Cars drive down Myrtle Ave very quickly, putting those diverted to the street at risk of being hit.
