    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!

    i have been dealing with incredibly inconsiderate upstairs neighbors since day one this has been a reoccurring problem since they moved in which was November 2019 throughout the day and night i hear loud disruptive running around and banging noises especially between the hours of 9pm and lasting up until 5/6am
    i have also talked to them in a civil manner about the situation multiple times, eventually the lady mentioned that one of her kids has autism, but it is not an excuse. to a certain extent yes i understand but when i hear loud noises coming from every single room in the house between (9pm-5am) do not use your autistic child as an excuse for the noise.
    they continue to be incessantly loud at unreasonable times and i am tired of having to tolerate the rudeness of my neighbors. the children are banging and running around aggresively between the hours of 9pm-5am throughout the entire home. any room i am in there is either loud tv noise ,children jumping, running, and screaming i can’t escape anywhere in my own home (why pay rent when you can’t even get some sleep). you pay for the leisure of peace and quiet in your home.
    there is also a cat that they neglect and allow outside when it’s cold or extremely hot to the point where the cat is excessively meowing throughout the day/night i can’t get any peace and quiet in this home ever and there should be laws for first floor tenants that they should not have to succumb to disruptive neighbors. i would also like to add that there’s only me and a roommate on the first floor while there’s 5/6 people living above us this should definitely be a huge part of the law! logically; common sense wise don’t allow families above people who are either a couple or an individual it makes no sense! at least offer to switch apartments before allowing them to move like accommodate your community.
    they also litter outside the home and the kids have destroyed the back porch i have also received complaints from surrounding neighbors about the kids throwing large rocks on top of someone’s storage unit along with trash in there backyard.
    for a simple request of daily peace i shouldn’t have to ring there doorbell at 3am to tell them that there kids are running around keeping me up. it is ridiculous and i would really appreciate any extra assistance to resolve this issue. please don’t refer me to the APD LT-NEU. i feel sorry for anyone who’s going to have to deal with one of the worst neighbors/tenants.

    A small tree growing out of the top of this building is dislodging the bricks. The bulge is worsening as the roots keep expanding. Bricks could fall.

    Six foot deep, 2 ft wide hole in sidewalk. Covered by a pizza box

    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.

    This stretch of sidewalk is NEVER salted or shoveled. It poses a serious danger to everyone in our community.
