Mercer Street ALBANY , NY
Fire hydrant is completely covered with overgrowth. Firemen wouldn't even see it in emergency situation and if they did would have to fight through trees to get to it. Our homes are close to it and want it easily accessible in case of emergency.
Attached is a photo of the fire hydrant ... Can you see it ?

There are two cars parking the hydrant here. This happens quite frequently at this location and no tickets are ever issued. Quite frustrating for residents who live here and have a difficult time finding legal parking to have visitors come down and park wherever they feel like it

The pot hole is in front of the Armory Car Dealer (926 Central Avenue) and if your heading east then there is a fire hydrant to the right of the pot hole and Colvin Avenue is the next intersection. It appears as though the pot hole has been created because the man hole cover has sunk into the road.

Why is the owner of the restaurant barge allowed to drive across the grass and sidewalks almost hitting pedestrians so they can park on the grass next to the boat instead of the parking lot. also blocking fire hydrant see photo.

40 N Pearl St Albany, New York
This weekend was Pearl Palooza on North Pearl St. The street was completely blocked off starting at Pine St. However, the block between Maiden Ln and PIne St also had no parking signs for both sides for the entire day. Now, I live on this block. I saw the signs and parked my car around the corner and up State St. As a resident who follows the parking enforcement rules, it is very frustrating to see that NO ONE who parked here on Saturday were ticketed despite the Emergency No Parking Signs. Last year, there were no signs on this block of the street and yet I STILL RECEIVED A TICKET. Thankfully, I noticed it almost immediately and was able to go down and catch an officer who ripped it up when I explained that there were no signs saying that there was no parking there.
The parking enforcement down here is absolutely ridiculous. There is constantly people (state workers) parking in front of fire hydrants, double parking, etc. No tickets are ever given. But as soon as you have a resident here committing an infraction, tickets are thrown around like candy. If you want people to move down here so badly you should really do something about the parking situation. Why no Resident Permits can be given out is beyond me. Its not like the city would lose that much money on it. Just start ticketing the state workers who are clearly above the law and you'll make it up very shortly I'm sure.

A Mr. Vince Semplinski at 196 3rd St. in Albany says that he thinks that a damaged fire hydrant (he says it's been hit by cars and is bent over) in front of his house has lowered the water pressure into his house. And he'd like it checked out or fixed.

There is water pooling near the fire hydrant where Beaver Street meets Beaver Alley. There is a drain grate and a manhole next to the hydrant. I also hear running water underground right near the hydrant that seemed to be coming from the manhole just near the hydrant. The photo shows the pooling water between the hydrant and the storm grate.

Parking attendant (NOT a police officer) driving City of Albany Police van felt the need to park vehicle incorrectly, blocking traffic, blocking hydrant and blocking crosswalk just to give a truck a parking ticket for being parked maybe a foot into Lark St. crosswalk. Double standard perhaps? Is breaking three laws to punish someone for almost breaking one really worth it?
