Albany SUCKS - 1/27/2013

Albany, NY


I agree with all of the negative comments. I moved here for college and law school. I don't feel safe walking here at night and there is no culture aside from nightlife, a few nice restaurants and art places, etc. The drug and crime rates are through the roof, the winters are brutal- I could go on all day. Unless you are coming for a good reason, i.e, a cheap college degree - avoid Albany at all costs. I know so many people who have been the victim of a violent crime here- from being mugged to raped to assaulted to robbed. Awful place to live.

Do the Albany timewarp - 12/1/2012

The welcoming signs on your way into Albany NY should read "ALBANY THE TOILET BOWL OF NEW YORK". People here think they are so sophisticated and with it when actually they are a bunch of rude, obnoxious and backward inbred hillbillies. Please if you can get out of coming here do it. I feel like I am living in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with zombies that have been altered by toxic nuclear waste. RUN RUN now before it's too late. Save yourselves.[read more...]

Dirty filthy smelly grubby hell hole.- 7/11/2012

If you are thinking of coming to Albany or the surrounding area? Forget it! Run as fast as you can in the other direction. There is nothing here, No jobs, nothing to do, people with rude, nasty and arrogant attitudes. Hillbilly's, crime and unemployment. At least an hour from the Adirondacks. Run And keep running any place is better than here. Afghanistan is starting to look good. As soon as I can I'm out of here. KMA Albany NY.[read more...]

Terrible economy. No jobs.- 4/2/2012

Unless you work for the state the only job options (possibly) are retail jobs with a huge turn over.[read more...]

Albany - 6/7/2010

Albany is dismal, cold, has terribly long harsh winters, and the population includes a lot of very crabby unhappy people. It is without question the most godawful miserable place I've ever seen. The only thing worse is the cities around it! It is part of the postindustrial apocalypse of Troy, Schenecdtady and other towns. Upstate NY was abandoned by something. The whole town in living in the distant past (the 19th and early 20th Centuries). The only nice things are the university, the low-cost (ghetto) of everything, and the architecture downtown, but it is a place in perpetual slum decline. Nothing could help it. The population has been fleeing and in the negative for years. Don't believe the optimistic reports.It's a place to go to college or visit, but definitely don't move there. The same goes for other towns like Syracuse NY. You wouldn't want to walk around at night there.[read more...]

Passive Terrorism Requires Military Intervention S - 7/13/2009

Another American Enlightned City To Avoid - So, where to go...?? Forget Albany, NY, unless you are uLtRa DiVeRsE and ready to turn any/all Cleaver Family people into the passive terrorist Station Chief if you're not uLtRa DiVeRsE and PeeSee -- so to be allowed, for example, to have a job. No joke. No Hyperbole. This kind of filthy devolved anti-American city_behavior is beneath shameful, disgusting and the perps should be brought up on hate crime charges. Why the comment about being single? You left us hanging there.[read more...]

Not what it used to be - 3/14/2013

As with most cities, living in Albany isn't what it used to be. I was born and grew up here and unfortunately never escaped. I agree with most of the negative comments posted. What I do not understand is that we are supposed to be the capital city and yet the roads here are horrible. I've had to have $4,000 worth of work done to my car because of the rough shape the roads are in. It seems the road crews are busy putting those damn roundabouts in every where you look or expanding the city to areas no one lives, but as far as repairing the already crumbling streets, forget it. I hit a pot hole once that was so deep, it dented the rim and blew my tire out. The streets in "Center Square" (a trendy section) around the capital are just as bad, full of potholes and past lumps from prior repairs. The only employer seems to be the state. I used to think that if you got in with a state job you were set for life, but that also is not true. I worked for a state agency for five years before I was hurt on the job and fired. Then I was blacklisted. People do seem to be generally unfriendly, rude and in too much of a hurry. The drivers are pathetic. Stop signs and traffic lights might as well not exist because drivers pay no attention to them. Pedestrians are defiant and cross in front of you while they are on the phone regardless of the traffic light. Some of them look at you as if to say "hit me I dare you". What they're probably saying is "hit me, I need the money". There's a lot of welfare and disability recipients here (not that there's anything wrong with that). You can observe this in the grocery store. Everyone with a shopping cart overflowing with food is more than likely going to pay with a "benefit" card, while I have my little basket of necessities like toilet paper. Albany is a dreadful place. Back in the 60's it was a family community, a safe place, no one locked their doors and downtown was not a ghost town. I guess Alany went the way of most other cities. It's a shame.[read more...]

CANNOT WAIT TO MOVE OUT OF THIS HOLE!- 1/3/2012

Moving to Albany has been the biggest mistake of my life: no culture, ugly downtown, very unfriendly and uncultured natives, horrible long winters, cost of heating sky-high (many apartments have only electric heating which costs a fortune during those horrible winters here), expensive and very limited housing. Living here for the past five years for personal reasons has been true hell. Thankfully, I will be moving out this year but will have nightmares about living here for many years to come. For people who used to live before in NYC or Philly it can be a true cultural shock![more...]

traffic - 11/20/2011
Significant traffic getting into Albany County. If you come in to Albany County West on the Thruway, there is a good amount of traffic - but as long as there isnt an accident, the flow is a joke. The layout of the region is suburban where we rely on single occupant automobile travel. There is no mass transit outside a regional bus system[more...]

Why I hate Albany!!!

Why I hate Albany!!.... I hate Albany because there is nothing to do here. The city is small. Everyone knows everyone. The winters are unbearable. I never witnessed or seen snow like i have when I moved up here. And this is just the city, the school SUNY Albany is just as worse. I do not think there was a day I did not get attacked by squirrels or had my car shitted by the birds. Need I say more... i didn't think so. This is how I feel about Albany being from the south, Myrtle Beach, SC to be exact... and this was my worst move ever. Take note that in the picture the person is skiing... i mean that's probably the only way u can get around this damn place in the winter... it sucks!!!!

Yeah it has to be bad there in Albany because all your felons are here in Utica adding to our own useless dregs.

That african scumbag that murdered that dude on Genny lastweek was from where? Albany. I have to hand it to Albany your africans are a real special breed and this slug got out of prison on Friday committed murder on Sunday. That has to be some sort of distorted african record that im sure they'd all be proud of.

Theres another white guy named DAVE ADAMS (look him up for your familys safety) 4eyed creepy looking and is always changing his look like hes james bond or something. Has a real nice history and hes somebody you dont want around the women or children in your family. At any rate guess where this guy is from? Albany
