The biggest concern should be how they are going to afford all the police necessary to keep the wild animals from the north & south ends of Albany from attacking the people risking their lives by walking anywhere downtown.

Does this "facelift" include sending the boogies back to NYC?'Cause that's what you're gonna have to do to make Albany a decent place.

Albany died a long time ago. It is an old, dirty, crumbling, cold relic of the once thriving northeast. Build the downtown Mall, redue old brownstones and sell to yuppies or give it a facelift, it won't work. The biggest industry in Albany is paper pushing state workers that sit around doing nothing and sucking up the taxpayers dollars in over inflated salaries, benefits and pensions. Good ridance to Albany and all others like it.
