  • Illegal Trash Acknowledged
    216 Quail St Albany Ny 12206, USA - Pine Hills
    UTTERLY DISGUSTING AND DISGRACEFUL!!! THESE STUDENTS AND THEIR SLUMLOARDS SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR DESTROYING THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH THEIR GARBAGE!!!!!
  • Interstate 787 Albany, NY 12209, USA - Delaware Avenue
    Every year the congestion is growing on the end of I-787. There needs to be better connection at the Interchange of I-87/Thruway, I-787, and US 9W, such a roundabout for all three roads, or a fly over ramp that connects I-787 directly to US 9W South, bypassing the Thruway entrance.
  • New York 85 Albany, NY 12203, USA - Buckingham Lake-Crestwood
    Route 85 in the City of Albany needs to be repaved. It leads from I-90 to the colleges and hospitals. Around a year of little projects have been done, however these patches have all come up, and it is very rough! Water pools in some areas in the rain, and potholes are numerous, deep, and unmarked.
  • Intersection Manning Blvd & Western Ave - Pine Hills
    During the day, you cannot turn left onto Manning Blvd (eastbound) from Western Ave, nor can you turn left onto South Manning Blvd (westbound) from Western Ave. This is because there is no left-turn arrow at the intersection from either direction. Western Ave was just repaved and re-striped--but no turn arrows were installed. The explanation that there's "not enough room" for left-turn lanes on Western Ave doesn't wash: you don't need turn lanes. Installing left-turn arrows in both directions would allow left-lane traffic to either turn left or not. As it is, you cannot see around the 2 lanes of traffic in either direction, and you back up the left-hand lane in both directions trying to turn left, with the result that angry drivers, stopped behind you, careen around you into the right-hand lanes and speed through the intersection. There are left-turn arrows for traffic turning onto Western from both Manning and South Manning; why not on Western?
  • 31 Spring Street Albany, New York - Central Avenue
    The Iron Gate Cafe (182A Washington Avenue) leaves their commercial trash cans stored at the rear of their building (31 Spring Street) unscreened daily (not just trash pickup day). They are often overflowing with trash. They never bring them inside. The trash at 25 Spring, 23 Spring, 21 Spring, and 19 Spring are all screened. Why is Iron Gate’s not? It’s disgusting to walk past daily.
  • Lark Street Albany, New York - Sheridan Hollow
    Where is the police presence in Center Square? It's no longer safe to walk in the neighborhood, someone was shot twice on the corner of Dove and Hudson, the panhandlers are uber aggressive, and the only time you see a cop around is if Kathy Sheehan wants to eat somewhere on Lark. The drug dealers have moved in, vacant buildings are loaded with squatters....what is going on around here?
  • Madison & Lark Lark Street, Albany, NY 12210, United States of America - Center Square
    This was reported previously, traffic dept said they reviewed and made adjustments to the timing of the lights at Madison/Lark and Madison/Willett but the issue is not yet resolved. Every single weekday traffic is backed up down Madison Avenue from Willett to S Swan since the road calming project was completed. Cars sit through multiple green lights before traffic gets cleared out of the intersection. The light at Madison and Willett needs further timing adjustment. Between cars going straight down Madison and cars turning from Lark and Delaware there is simply too much traffic for one lane.
  • 188 W Lawrence St Albany Ny 12203 Usa - Pine Hills
    The new owners of the house at 188 West Lawrence St are attempting to turn this two family dwelling into 4 or 6 separate studio apartments. I live directly across the street at 197 and have been living at this address for the last 30 years. I am not aware that the new owners have obtained the necessary variance or building permits to make this change. And as far as I know, none of the neighbors around here have been consulted on such a major change to our neighborhood.
  • Other Acknowledged
    Marinello Terrace & Delaware Avenue Albany, NY 12209, USA - Delaware Avenue
    Does anyone know who this kid is? Not only is he driving a go kart down Delaware, he is talking on his phone while driving down Delaware! I have seen him weave in and out of traffic as well, passing illegally!
  • 220 West Erie Albany, New York - New Scotland

    Just curious if the city will do anything at 220 West Erie. The hoarding is out of control making it difficult to even walk along the side walk. Also noticed some trash on the lot with a skunk going through it the other night.

    The property is an eyesore, and in danger of more rodents and vermin being attracted to the many rotting plants and garbage, and multiple stick piles along the house.

  • Missing sign Archived
    Rose Court Albany, NY - Delaware Avenue
    We have called the traffic engineering department to report/check on status of this issue for over 6 months, the residents of the street feel very strongly that a street sign to a main connector between Whitehall Rd and Hackett Blvd not be missing for over 6 months.
  • Delaware Avenue And Second Avenue Albany, New York - Delaware Avenue
    Because the traffic heading from Whitehall onto Delaware Ave has a right turn arrow after cars on Delaware have received a green light, if you are heading up the hill from Second Avenue, trying to turn left on Delaware and have pulled into the intersection you can be trapped in the dangerous position of not being able to complete your turn because cars from Whitehall are still turning right, but being in the intersection as cars want to start crossing it on Delaware. This has happened to me a few times and I now try to remember to avoid approaching that intersection from that direction. But it's quite dangerous.
