I HATE this but...Albany is a cesspool and has been since the 1960's when white flight happened and then the riots, urban renewal (pull down the old buildings and put up new, ugly modern buildings) and then black flight out of Albany. NOTHING has changed in Albany since my childhood back in the very early 1960's when my Grandparents lived on State Street and worked at Albany Med. Their beautiful old brownstone on State Street was torn down and the ugly new buildings went up. By the end of the 1960's, my family never went back into Albany and even now, in 2010, we avoid Albany as much as possible. This is sad. I remember an Albany that was beautiful. The old brownstones were lovely, the city was alive and it was wonderful. But nothing has changed since the late 1960's and I don't understand WHY? Why a once beautiful city is still a mess and has yet to reach a population of 100,000. It hurts me to see Albany and remember "Old Albany" - very sad and very true.

Murphy-- there are very few decent areas left in the city anymore... mostly because the streets have been overrun with crime at the hands of the welfare class. The same welfare class breeds like rats and has children they can't afford. The Albany schools are horrible, and anyone who can afford to sends their child to private schools. In the nicer areas of the city, the taxes are so high that it forces young families out...
THAT is why Albany continues to decay.
