Jordan Rd Troy, NY 12180, USA - Rensselaer CountyAll of Jordan Rd is a mess, it's hardly drivable. it seems like it happened over night, too.
625-709 U.S. 4 Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
City of Troy is occupying the old Tire Warehouse and not maintaining the building or grounds.
This property has many issues besides the obvious busted windows, uncut grass. It's a real eyesore on a block where 7 other properties already sit vacant. All in better shape I might add than the building the city occupies to store city trucks and equipment.
Is this building insured with the city or are they squatting?
Either way they should maintain it if they choose to use it!
River St & 3rd St - TroyThe Uncle Sam parking garage in Troy has three stairwells. The ground level entrance to the stairwell, closest to River Street, is constantly used as a urinal. Often puddles of urine greet parkers at the bottom of the stairs. It's disgusting.
378 Bridge - TroyIt's college time again and another pileup on 378 today...more signs showing the speed limit of 30 are necessary! Place lighted 30 mph signs up before getting on bridge...people fly over that bridge like it is highway mph going 40-50 mph, talking on their phones...set some policeman there every a.m. and show their presence - they are going to end up having to go anyway because of an accident. Sidewalk work is currently being done so why not install the signs now. Every year it gets worse with the accidents and nothing has been done.
333-335 2nd Street Troy, New York - TroyI recently moved to the area and 2 times this week, at night, I can smell a strange "burnt rubber" smell that lingers in through the windows. Anyone else notice this strange odor? I've had awful sore throats and nasal congestion ever since I started smelling this foul air.

There are no speed limit signs on Oakwood Ave.
If you're traveling on Oakwood ave torward hoosick street... the first and only speed limit sign is way up on Oakwood ave BEFORE Oakwood cemetery! At that's a temporary sign built out of 2x4's.
By the time drivers get to middleburgh ave and the long HILL, they've forgotten what the speed limit is. I regularly see drivers exceeding the 30mph limit by 10-20mph.
I'm sure it'll take a pedestrian or a child to get killed before the city puts proper speed limit signs on Oakwood ave.
The attached picture is just west of middleburgh ave in the area where there are no speed limit signs. If you live in the area of travel through oftne, you recognize these homes.
164 River St Troy, NY 12180, USA - TroyIt would help the 8 businesses at this end of River Street if cars could turn right off Congress street instead of being forced over the bridge to Watervliet.
2592 Plank Rd. Petersburgh, NY 12138 - Rensselaer CountyDaily drivers know instead of stopping at the stop sign on Rt. 66 heading towards Wynantskill, they make a right hand turn which is a yield, then quickly make a left and bypass the stop sign. I have been nearly hit numerous times by the left turners as I head home to Berlin. I have a 5 yr old daughter and fear for our safety. I am sick of people resenting hitting their brakes.
10th St & Oakwood Ave Troy, NY - Troy
It's bad enough that for years H&V employees, H&V flat beds and wreckers clog up all the on-street parking (Monday through Friday 8-6pm) but now H&V is taking over the sidewalks too?!
Everyday the penisula and sidewalk area at 10th st and oakwood terrace is a parking and driving nightmare. The parked employee cars are actually in the road at the point where 10th and oakwood intersect. Anyone coming out of 10th st onto oakwood can't see left on oakwood because of the illegally parked H&V employee cars and work trucks.
In the attached photos, the honda sedan is clearly in the sidewalk. If that's not bad enough, they then dump an broken down SUV right on the sidewalk!
It's gotten so tough to find parking here that some residents have started putting things in the street to keep H&V employees out of their spots.
Maybe the employees could ride-share? Or park on H&V property? Or not park in front of homes that are obviously lived in? Park on oakwood in front of st. marys? Rent parking spots from Ross Valve?
H&V needs to realize they are doing business in a residential neighborhood. They need to be more respectful of the people that live here.
158-176 New York 66 Troy, NY 12180, USA - TroyCan Troy learn how to actually pave a road? The pot holes are like moon crater and it's dangerous to drive around them... for a city of it's size, it paves roads like amateurs
555 5th Ave Troy, NY 12182, USA - TroyThis house is right next door to the firehouse at 115th qnd 5th ave. in Lansingburgh. It's in very bad shape, and has been pad locked for quite some time now. Windows have been broken within the past few months too. I'm afraid kids are going to get in there and start a fire. Please have this house torn down !Make it a parking lot, or a yard for the firemen to use.
Oakwood Ave From Frear Pk To Hoosick St. Troy, NY - Frear Park
Oakwood Ave is a very, very busy truck route. Along with 1000's of passenger vehicles, 18 wheelers travel up and down this road all day and night.
Most residents of Oakwood ave have on-street parking only.
Since the city only pushes the snow toward the curb (into our parking spaces) and doesn't REMOVE the snow, residents are forced to park partially in the travel lane!
My vehicle was hit yesterday. I was parked as far out of the travel lane as I could get. My wheels were in the snowbank. The now banks are encroaching into the street roughly 2-4 feet away from the curbs.
The police had to waste time to come make out a report when they could have been doing something productive.
Does the city have any big snow blowing machines (like Albany has) that chew up and spit out the snow into an adjacent dump truck? If Troy has snow removal equipment, why isn't it being utilized? Especially, in busy, dangerous places like Oakwood Ave.
