Thank you to the area resident who posted the following information: A few years ago, the state of New York legalized SOME types of fireworks, but this does NOT include: Firecrackers
Any aerial device
Anything shooting through the air and making a loud noise is ILLEGAL.
All that is legal is:
Sparkling fountains (cylindrical and cone)
Sparklers on wooden sticks, but not metal
Confetti-filled party poppers
Illegal fireworks can be reported to the police at 518-438-4000.
250 Lark Street Albany, New York - Center SquareThe bar Pint Sized on the corner of Lark and Jay Street does not Seem to have Cigarette Butt buckets or ash trays. The sidewalks And both Jay and Lark Streets are LITTERED with cigarette butts which has Greatly increased since this establishment opened and Continues to Increase in the warmer weather as they set out chairs to encourage their patrons to sit outside. Not sure if this can be handled thru this system however I do not feel this would be a productive conversation if I attempted to discuss with the young owners. Can an Ash Tray mandate be implemented for such establishments with outdoor seating? People should want to enjoy this neighborhood but not at the expense of trashing our sidewalks with such filth.
474 Madison Ave Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Park SouthLarge graffiti painted on sidewalk between 474 and 476 Madison. The problem tenant in 474 and her 3 male friends were in that area setting off fireworks, drinking alcohol, and yelling between 10:00 and midnight. Check security and traffic cameras. In addition to the fire hazard, smoke and the ongoing disruption to the neighborhood, they left all the fireworks litter on the sidewalk and now this is spray painted. Police were called multiple times, but did not respond as usual. How that level of noise and smoke was also not seen and addressed by a single patrol officer, on the very public Madison Ave over that period of time, says it all. If this is what happens on a Monday night, imagine what it's like Thursdays-Saturdays.
351 Myrtle Ave Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Park SouthThis disgusting couch has been here for months. Really, months. I appreciate See Click Fix but it is not the public's responsibility to inform the city about things like this. Because the city clearly knows about it. Months. Really.
74 Willett St Albany 12210, United States - Center SquareFor about two hours there have been countless dirt bikes and motorcycles racing down Lark Street and through Washington Park. While I was out walking the dog I saw two of them run the red light at Willett and Hudson without a care in the world. I’ve called APD and was told they’d send someone over - why isn’t someone here patrolling already? If they’ve increased patrol and actually have beat officers in the neighborhood as they claim, why does the problem continue to occur night after night?
466 Madison Ave Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Park SouthThe crosswalk in front of the Downtube continues to be dangerous. It has not drained properly for years. It is either a patch of ice that people fall on or people have to go around and not use the safety of the crosswalk. For people with strollers, shopping carts, or disabilities requiring a ramp, they have no option, but to be on ice or wade through water, It's ridiculous that so much money went into Madison Ave., only to make it a traffic nightmare most of the day, but a drainage issue can't get fixed.
263 Madison Ave Albany, NY 12210, USA - AlbanyLarge potehole gave me flats in both bike tires. Safety hazard for bicycles and motorist. Exposed rebar visible.
269 Lark St Albany 12210, United States - Center SquareThe pan handling is out of control right now. Why aren’t there more police on foot. It’s prime business time and one of Lark Streets biggest clientele is all over the street. The homeless and displaced. I am all for helping but how is anyone supposed to make a living when customers are being harassed for money on their way down the street.
70 Morris St. Albany, New York - Park SouthWhy 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.
22 Willett St Albany, NY 12210, USA - AlbanyThere is a homeless couple living in the park and storing there belongings all throughout the day near the corner of Willet and State Streets. it is right across the street from 20 Willet.

Madison Ave. Albany, New York - AlbanyWhy is no one addressing the motorcycle noise and speed! This has been going on for a long time tonight. Very loud. Very dangerous. Reported to police but no one came.
102 Willett Albany, New York - Center SquareVery loud motorcycles and cars are racing, popping wheelies and revving engines up and down Madison and through the park. This has gone on for more than an hour with no response from the police who were called. This goes on nightly. Assign a patrol car or officers on motorcycles to catch and ticket these people.
