  • Illegal Trash Archived
    Dana Avenue Albany, New York - Park South
    All up and down Dana Avenue there is illegal trash stored in front of homes. It creates issues with vermin, animals tearing into the bags, smells, insects and a general run down look that is unneccessary. This is reported over and over, but either people are not fined or don't care (like the many absentee landlords with deep pockets who escape any real accountability) . This leaves other residents and property owners at the mercy of the situation. This would not be allowed in more affluent areas. Why is it continually allowed on Dana Ave and Morris St.?
  • Se C/O Cardinal & New Scotland Albany, New York - New Scotland
    The grass is over 1 foot high. There was black plastic sheeting on the roof, but it tore in last windstorm and is now hanging down. House is an eyesore. Owned by bank But the b and still needs to maintain it.
  • Morris St. Alongside Sefcu Albany, New York - Park South
    Because Albany Medical Center valets are being allowed to commandeer residential parking up and down both sides of Morris, and not get ticketed including for illegally parking on alternate parking days, the south side of Morris is filled with trash and debris along the curb that blows all over. We have street cleaning for a reason. Please do your jobs City of Albany and hold the medical center accountable for what they are doing to this entire area and get those vehicles out of the way for weekly street cleaning. We are all so sick of how residents and tax payers are being allowed to be treated and taken advantage of.
  • 163 Dana Ave Albany, NY 12208, USA - Park South
    I've been observing significant drug traffic at 163 Dana Ave 2nd floor apartment. It is usually a whole ordeal that I've witnessed a few times now, the old man gets a ride over to Albany Med by ambulance, comes home a few days later with what a intelligent human being could assume are pain killers or other OTC drugs and then the traffic starts coming at all hours! I have pictures of a mailman going in for more than 15 mins, that's no delivery and it was hours before we get our mail in this area of the city! I also called the postmaster that day and reported that mailman (thanks to the number on the van) I haven't seen him around anymore. City officials and police have been called to no avail! When they come they usually park in the Albany Medical Center parking lot that's on Robin Street between Dana Ave and Morris Ave, could we maybe get more patrols in this area? Please help!

    Hackett Blvd. Between Harris And Prospect Albany, New York - Helderberg
    There is a private driveway being paved between Prosepct terrace and Harris Avenue on the North side of hackett Blvd. The machinery and trailers are parked on the public grassy median. This is tearing up the median. Does the paving company have permission to do this? Will they repair the median? Do they need a permit to do the paving work? This transgression is but one violation of many where contractors and home owners use the public median along Hackett as if it is their private property. Worst offender is the Albany Academy.
  • 251 S Main Ave Albany, NY 12208, USA - New Scotland
    The timing on this light recently changed and the traffic now gets backed up on S. Main during a red light for about 10 cars, even during "off-traffic" hours. The light seems inordinately lengthy.
  • 260-296 Myrtle Ave Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Albany
    This overgrown stretch of sidewalk is along the fence line of the field at Hackett Middle School. The bushes and branches are obstructing the sidewalk making it difficult for walkers, bikers or those in a wheelchair/scooter to navigate this area. This sidewalk is utilized by Veteran patients, many of whom have physical limitations. It is also used by staff from the Albany VA & Albany Medical Center and students & staff of the middle school. Cars drive down Myrtle Ave very quickly, putting those diverted to the street at risk of being hit.
  • 67 W Erie St Albany, NY 12208, Albany, New York - New Scotland
    The recent National Grid contractor work has left the road of W Erie and Ryckman Ave around the intersection of Woodlawn Ave in very rough shape. I am guessing the road may get major work at some point, but could the city temporarily patch up the many potholes and make the road safer?
  • 576 Myrtle Ave Albany, NY 12208, USA - Pine Hills
    The overgrowth and vines is starting to wrap itself around the power lines to this house. There is rotting trash in the back yard which includes construction debris, paint cans and aerosol cans. Paint is peeling and several screens have been pulled out on the windows.

    77 Dana Ave Albany, NY 12208, USA - Park South
    Mr Steins building is spewing fine Styrofoam all over. it's everywhere, we are breathing it in and it's like snow all over the street. I'm sure this is healthy...
  • 615 Myrtle Ave Albany, NY 12208, USA - Pine Hills
  • 1 Lawnridge Ave Albany, New York - Helderberg

    I have reported this issue to the mayors office and the Building Department Multiple times. WHY IS MR DUKER ALLOWED TO DO WORK WITHOUT PERMITS?

    He has done electrical plumbing and heating, moved walls around and has done exterior work. I have called multiple times and he only has a repair permit! We as concerned neighbors would like to know WHY! . I have spoke with all my neighbors and WE ARE CONCERNED! The contractors have let me in and that place has had a COMPLETE RENOVATION!
