  • Madison Ave & Lark St Albany, NY, 12210, USA - Center Square
    Please Madam Mayor, Chief of Police, BID Members, Neighborhood Association Presidents, and Council Representatives, HELP US. It's miserable in the Dana Ave., Lark, Madison, and Washington Park areas. The Motorcycle noise, loud car stereos and engines, and very dangerous driving by these vehicles, are ruining this area. We can't have our windows open for air. We can't sleep at night. We can't enjoy peace in our homes, or dine outside at area restaurants and it's also very dangerous. Children can't even play outside. These motorcycles, and many off-road vehicles, are speeding, doing wheelies, doing U-turns in the middle of traffic, driving into oncoming traffic, bullying other drivers, driving on the sidewalks, the grass, through the park playground and more. Why is this being allowed? We watch officers witness the behavior and not make any effort to address it, take a photo, take down a license number, NOTHING. When asked why, they say they've been told not to. Why is the safety and quality of life of so many people being put at risk for the possibility of a high speed chase that might never happen? It's absurd, negligent and dangerous.

    There are people lighting off fireworks (loud ones) all night. Last night someone was lighting off M-80 type fireworks at 2 and 3 in the morning. I don't know how anyone is supposed to sleep and contribute to this neighborhood with hooliganism like that happening all hours. APD should be working to make this neighborhood a better place.
  • 67 Chestnut St Albany 12210 United States - Center Square
    I called the people listed on the sign and they said they do not have any apartments available at 67 Chestnut St. They also don’t seem to have apartments available now at 71 Chestnut either. Which means both of these signs are illegal and are basically just advertising for the company. They should be removed.
  • 49 Grand St Albany, NY, 12207, USA - Albany
    This is not just a noise complaint, but a vagrancy complaint. People have been using this sidewalk area in front of our family restaurant as a party location where they drink from liquor bottles and urinate in public. Our business has been disrupted by this, as they blast music from parked cars. We own many buildings in this area and are working to revitalize this historic "Little Italy" part of the City of Albany but we need help. Signs indicating no loitering would be appreciated.
  • 23 Parkwood St Albany, NY, 12208, USA - New Scotland
    Sidewalk blocked completely by hedges. When I went to post this seeclickfix said there were already 2 posts regarding it that hadn't been closed. Great work City of Albany.
  • 98 Willett St Albany 12210, United States - Center Square

    Last night we had fireworks going off in the neighborhood between 12 and 2 am. All very loud explosions. I called into APD around 1 and was given the same response that they’d send someone over. The fireworks continued. Now tonight they’ve been going off for the last half hour or so and I imagine they’ll continue for some time.

    Calling noise complaints into APD hasn’t seemed to bear fruit (and it’s been happening since LAST summer) so I’ll continue to post them here in hopes that someone, somewhere in our city’s government will eventually care enough to step in.

  • 74 Willett St Albany 12210, United States - Center Square
    Fireworks. Fireworks. Fireworks.
  • 39 Central Ave Albany 12206, United States - Central Avenue
    The motorcycle situation is out of control. Many nights, but especially this hour, tonight. Up and down Central Avenue. Screeching revving. I live two blocks in toward the park, and I can’t escape the sound through closed windows.
  • Lark St & Madison Ave Albany, NY, 12210, USA - Center Square
    This weekend was so dangerous and miserable for the Lark, Madison and Washington Park areas with the motorcycles, motorbikes, ATVs (and outrageously loud car stereos and fireworks until 3:00 AM) and July 4th is coming. This areas is getting a very negative reputation, and how disruptive this will be when Park Playhouse starts. Please provide a meaningful response here Albany City Officials. Also, can we enlist the State Police since our local department does not appear to be addressing these issues in any noticeable or effective way? What about contacting our political representatives beyond the Mayor and Common Council? Is there anyone in the Governor's Office who might care or be of help? Even though Dunkin Donuts is a franchise, would Corporate condone it being used as a gathering place that exacerbates some of this? Maybe they should be notified by the neighborhood associations. Other communities are finding ways to address this issue. Here's a news story about one of them https://youtu.be/JYAkV3MM2Ko. Does Albany PD uses the StopIt app mentioned in this news clip and that other communities are using? What would it take to get that in place APD? It may also be time for Letters to the Editors, contacting TV news stations, and letters to the Mayor's office. Citizens are a part of the equation, but can't do this alone.
  • 340 Washington Ave Albany, NY 12203, USA - Central Avenue
    so are the police going to actually enforce the fireworks law? this is excessive
  • 439 Madison Ave Albany, NY, 12210, USA - Center Square
    Can a City Official inform area bars and restaurants that customers can't congregate outside after 11:00 PM. Too many seem to think it's enough to tell customers the outside area is closed but still allow them to congregate outside after that, including until 2:00 and 4:00 AM.

    250 Lark St Albany, NY 12210, USA - Center Square
    There has been a man who previously frequently solicited in front of Rain who now gravitates to Pint size. He stares uncomfortably at women sitting outside of pint size and does not leave when asked to. He makes sexual remarks as well. I've contacted police about him beforehand but he continues to return. I'm not sure who to contact now. Does not seem violent just, predatory.
