Issues: blighted property
763-773 Cortland St Albany, NY 12203, USA
The Western Ave Exit off of 85 ends at a road with 1 stop sign, and is surrounded with 3 foot grass and weeds! As you're stopped you can't tell if cars are coming for either side, it's very dangerous! Someone needs to MOW the GRASS!
193 2nd Ave Albany, NY 12202, USA
Alleyway for abandoned house, had several filled trash cans spilling over with bottles/cans some partially empty, household items such as baskets, buckets, umbrella and bags, along with fast food garbage and flies; alley is also being used as a public bathroom and a spot to stash drugs. The backyard is being used as a bike parking lot, with a table and chairs set up along with other household items not previously there. This issue has been brought to the City's attention twice and the Albany Police Department. The City came and cleaned out the alley and backyard, and cut down the overgrowth. This was just recently resolved and is being formally addressed here.

Filling the holes with tar is just not working. THe street needs curbs so that cars dont destroy the sides of the street. People in the neigborhood take care of thier lawns, just to find treadmarks on their newly planted grass. With curbs this would not happen.
Northern Blvd Albany, NY
The entire Northern Boulevard/NY Route 377/US Route 9 corridor should be called:
"The Intersection that Time Forgot".
Absolutely NOTHING has been repaired at this intersection since the late 1950's - early 1960's when this whole intersection was built!
(Oh yeah, I forgot-- they just recently put in a new traffic light at Northern Blvd. and NY 377)... Wheeee!!!
WOW! One improvement in 50 years!
But the pavement is crumbling, the road surface is buckling, potholes are big enough to break your tire right off of your car, many of the street lights are not functioning, the overpass abutments are disintegrating, and the amount of weeds and overgrowth of dead trees in this area is STAGGERING!!!
Route 378 down the street was just recently repaired wonderfully... Can't the same be done to Route 377 as well??!?!
You'd think with all the influential politicians and wealthy socialites who go to the Wolfert's Roost up the street, that they would at least attempt to clean up this section in order to gain favor with their constituency!!
