31 Spring Street Albany, New York - Central AvenueThe 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.

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.

111–163 Willett St Albany 12210, United States - Center SquareOff road vehicles down Madison again
250 Lark Street Albany, New York - Center SquarePatrons of this establishment not only litter and crowd the corner (blocking the path of those walking on the sidewalks), but are EXTREMELY loud for No Reason after 8pm. Patrons loudly laugh and yell, ignoring the fact that the side streets of this neighborhood are residential and that Maybe people might have to get up for work before 6am and don't need people screaming randomly.
This could Easily be fixed if the owner of the bar kept is customers quiet after 8pm, but this is not the case. The owner is happy to disrupt the residents in order to make a few dollars off of rude college students.
I used to love living in Center Square, but since Pint Sized moved in I have been looking to move elsewhere.

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.
Morris St. And New Scotland Ave. Albany, New York - Park South
An Albany Medical Center valet service is monopolozing public parking and bothering people who legally park on either side of the street on Morris at New Scotland. I parked in a public space and a valet immediately approached my car. I shook my head that I did not want valet parking, but he stood at my car door. When I exited my vehicle, he asked me where I was going and how long I would be.
It's no ones business where I'm going or for how long. I told them this is public/residential parking. They told me my car might get blocked in if I park there, and one of the valets said, I was lucky it was him or I might "get hassled" by other valets for parking (in a residential spot with my residential permit). This feels like pressuring, bordering on harassment. The city needs to reign in AMC. Park South is not their kingdom.

Madison & Lark Lark Street, Albany, NY 12210, United States of America - Center SquareThis 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.
