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.
North Greenbush NY, USA - Rensselaer CountyRoute 43 between Routes 4 and 150 was poorly repaired last Spring, and is dangerous, pocked with ruts and potholes for several miles between Defreestville and West Sand Lake.

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!
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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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.
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.
New York 142 Troy, NY 12182, USA - TroyThis entire area of road is absolutely crumbling!! The pavement isn't marked well enough, the traffic signals are inadequate, and the entire series of intersections is an absolute nightmare to travel through! It needs a complete reconstruction immediately!
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.
