  • 441 Hudson Avenue Albany, NY 12203, USA - Pine Hills
    There is so much dog waste on the sidewalks, either the city needs to fine the houses surrounding it, clean it up or start posting someone out there and start handing out the $100 fines. It is a disgusting mess.

  • 47-57 South Pearl Street Albany, New York - Albany

    With construction almost finalized on the entertainment hub of downtown Albany, the Times Union Center (TUC) has installed large video screens on the outside of their building. Throughout the day (and even in the night), ads flash across the screens to promote their upcoming events. Some ads even include jingles to supplement the information being shown.

    As a resident who lives across the street, I was dumbfounded to come home after 8pm (when noise ordinances are enacted) to be disrupted by this constant noise. I stayed awake throughout the night until the screens finally shutdown at midnight and awoke to them playing again at 6:30 am.

    I've never had an issue with TUC when concerts or sporting events are in session. However on an evening where no events are taking place, these screens seem to display loud and obnoxious music. I can mitigate the flashing lights with black-out curtains, but I cannot solve the unruly noises that echoes throughout my apartment walls.

    Despite being a community venue, the TUC should follow city laws and silence their screens and advertisements at 8pm. This issue is affecting my ability to enjoy the comforts of my own home during hours (by law) that should be quite. I urge you to investigate this concern and ensure that the Times Union Center follows Albany's noise ordinances which I've linked below.

    Washington Park Rd Albany, NY 12210, USA - Albany
    Washington Park Road is not supposed to be used my ANY commercial vehicles. there Used to be signs posted at the entrances of the park. Every single day there are beer trucks, busses -cdta and school busses, USPS haulers, and 18 wheelers traveling through the park. signs for non commercial use and enforcement need to be put BACK in place. it would also be nice if speed limit signs could be replaced as well. 20 mph signs have been removed, damaged, etc and never put back.

    Washington Park Madison Ave, Albany, NY 12203, USA - Albany
    I'm taking lunch today in the park, since it's such a nice day, and I'm watching a park employee push the gravel they use on pathways into the lake. I've lived in Albany all my life and frequently lunch here. Never before have I seen a park employee creating this mess in the lake. This serves no purpose other than to create an artificial bank that boaters are not allowed to use anyway. such a shame.

    Washington Park Albany Ny - Albany
    People sleeping overnight in the park: under the old weeping beech and on that mysterious platform in the dog park. Seems like numbers have increased.
