the new buildings(Eleftheria?) on S. Allen St. are having the entire run of sidewalk replaced by the city. most of those panels were in fine shape but are being made brand new by request!
would it be possible to repair an actual hazard while the crews are just down the street doing Eleftheria's bidding?

Please please please clarify the number of lanes with signage and lane markings for the length of New Scotland from Krumkill to Manning Blvd. Especially now with the Maria College construction that encroaches into the road. Speed and aggressive driver enforcement would also vastly improve the safety of this very busy thoroughfare. Near miss accidents occur dozens of times per day.
The occupants of said address own a dangerous and untrained aggressive animal, which is allowed free range of the entire block at any given point in the day. It is never on a leash. It’s only a matter of time until it hurts or kills someone or someone else’s pet. Recently, (not an hour ago) a woman was nearly attacked because they never have it on a leash. This has gone on for months and the guy always apologizes but cant seem to figure out a leash law, Good luck. It’s an easy place to find. The front yard is all dug up. Bare dirt. I hear they’re also squatters so that should be a fun day. Thank you.

There are drugs being sold/done in and out of this house. Constantly smells like marijuana, lawn overgrown, constant traffic at all hours of the night, screaming at 3 am, police being called to this house and nothing is done. It's ruining my quiet street/neighborhood.
This lot has been vacant for quite some time. Lately, there have been upwards of 7 cars parked in this lot on a regular basis and on weekends and during Washington Park events, more folks park in it (driving over sidewalks to access it).
So my question is- is this a parking lot? Can I park in it? Since people are already using it as a parking lot- why doesn't the city pave it, clean it up and install meters to make it a convenient PAID lot for Lark St. visitors. Seems like a no brainer. It currently looks bad and has no clear purpose.
2 African American guys that live at 92 Dana ave in the basement apt are always driving up the street reving the engine on a burgundy Dodge Challenger really loud all the time. This happens at all hours of the day. I’ve also seen them with guns and selling drugs in the cvs parking lot. Please get these two low life’s off the street .

The Albany Medical Center valets are continuing to park on the streets in residential parking rather than in the AMC garage as AMC has told the Mayor's Office they are. Neighbors have spoken to the valets recently and they confirm they are parking wherever there are spots on the street and are not using the AMC parking garage. They were not even aware that is something they are supposed to be doing, so clearly AMC is not doing their part and not being truthful with the city to the detriment of tax payers. The "Valet Parking Only" sign is also still installed in a residential parking area and no one will admit who installed it, who approved it, and who is allowing it to remain.
For the last month plus a neighbor has parked his boat and boat trailer on our residential street. As per the Albany parking restrictions seen here: https://ecode360.com/7685595#7685627 it seems this should not be allowed and should be moved and stored somewhere appropriate.
It is hard to see around when driving as it takes up a good amount of the road at the Barnet and Oakwood intersection. This is dangerous to cars and the children that play on this street.
Please have the owner find a new storage space for the boat rather than a city street.
It has been a reasonable amount of time to find new storage and if this is allowed to continue through the winter it would an unneeded plowing hassle.
996 Madison Ave Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Pine Hills
There are several residents of Morris Street (I believe) who are driving their 4 wheelers around Myrtle, Morris, and the St Rose music parking lot at an extreme speed. They are also driving on the sidewalks. They are extremely rude when neighbors have asked them to stop. No masks, no helmets, no headlights. It’s so dangerous both for the riders and for the neighbors. Kids on the block have playing inside all day because of them.

First time a sign appeared at this crosswalk in months, and its flattened within an hour. We NEED a light-up signal activated when a pedestrian is there. There are several new ones throughout the city. This is dangerous for a so-called walkable community!
