  • Pothole Archived
    Notre Dame Dr Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Albany
    There are several re-occuring large and deep potholes along Notre Dame Drive between Holland and Vassar. It is extremely difficult to traverse this road without hitting one.
  • S Manning Blvd Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Helderberg

    It's great that St. Peter's has a no smoking policy for their campus. Except for any and all neighbors of the surrounding campus. Employees, contractors and patients alike simply exit the perimeter of St. Peter's to smoke their cigarettes. The result is an excessive and abundant ring of cigarette butts and litter surrounding the campus. Why should the neighbors of St. Peter's have to deal with St. Peter's litter?? This is a classic example of good rule gone bad and unintended consequences. As neighbors of St. Peter's we are sick of the the cigarette filled sidewalks on front of Dunkin Donuts, The US Post Office, Maria College, Temple Israel, Key Bank... the list goes on.

    We ask the board of St. Peter's - why should these fine business and institutions have to deal with the litter of your employees and customers? Let them smoke on your own property and YOU CLEAN IT UP!

    St. Peter's, we look forward to your response and dedication to solving this issue for your neighbors.

  • New Scotland At Buckingham Sr. Albany, New York - Buckingham Lake-Crestwood
    There's been a large jump in the number of people that are going through the left turn only lane going east on New Scotland at this light. Some of it might be because of the poor condition of the road in the right lane but the majority of it seems to be people just trying to beat the traffic. I've seen this everyday for a week now and it's definitely intentional. This causes problems with people in the correct lane to go straight once they get past the light. Any chance of getting enforcement here?

    613 New Scotland Avenue Albany, New York - New Scotland

    Twice this week I saw whoever was driving the vehicle in the picture cross double yellow lines with oncoming traffic in order to speed past vehicles that were following the law (and common sense) by going 20 mph near a park and waiting for a person in a wheelchair to finish crossing the street. I sure hope they are stopped before they cause a head-on collision or run over a pedestrian.

    In the meantime, drivers and pedestrians beware!

    (BTW, my best guess is that this person lives in the suburbs west of Albany because we happened to be going the same way for awhile.)

  • 70 Morris St. Albany, New York - Park South
    Why is it so hard for tenants of 70 Morris to dispose of their garbage in their own building? This is a regular issue. Today, tenants decided they should leave their trash and cardboard outside the municipal trash bin outside of Pat Kelly Park at the intersection of Morris and Knox. Conveniently, they left their names on the boxes. Please address with management- Maddalone & Associates.

  • 78 Morris St. Albany, New York - Park South
    Since purchasing my home in the Park South neighborhood last year, I've admired Pat Kelly park at the intersection of Morris and Knox. It is always impeccably maintained... and padlocked. I've asked about it at the neighborhood association meetings on a number of occasions and got hushed murmured responses as to why that is, and who has access to this park.
    Over the weekend, I was walking my dog and to my great surprise- a HUMAN! In Pat Kelly Park- gardening! I quickly walked over to this person and from the other side of the fence said with excitement "Good morning! I've never seen anyone in this park!" The person ignored me. I tried again "Do you have the key?" "Yes Maam I do, " said the person, not making eye contact - then walking away, ending the conversation. Stunned , I continued on my walk, baffled that someone who somehow has a key and private access to a CITY PARK was being so rude.
    On my way back I asked from the other side of the fence "this is a city park, right?" the person refused to answer me and went skulking off behind the shed.
    This is not acceptable. What the heck is going on with Pat Kelly Park? If it's someone's private park and I am confused- please let me know. But if this is a city-owned park (as the most recent parcel map indicates) it needs to be open or there needs to be some avenue for gaining access to members of the community. Is this the Secret Garden?
  • Tree Issues Archived
    35 Oakwood St Albany, New York - New Scotland
    I call this the Death Tree" because it has so many dead branches ready to fall and cause potential death and injury to both pedestrians and cars. It' located across the street from my house on the side of 37 Oakwood St almost on the corner of Fairview & Oakwood St. and right next to power pole #8. It's on city property, has power lines going through it and Lewis Tree Co. refuses to touch it because they don't work on trees next to a street lamp pole. One of the wires going through it is loose and hanging down slightly.
  • 50 Oakwood St Albany, new york - New Scotland
    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: 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.
  • 700 New Scotland Ave Albany 12208, United States - New Scotland
    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.
  • Illegal Trash Archived
    450 Yates St Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Pine Hills
    The student house always has piles of garbage in front of the building creating a disgusting and disgraceful scattering of garbage all over the area.
