Albany is a fun little city with many activities in or around the area. There are many colleges in the area, as well as state buildings, being the capital and all. Most everything is within walking distance, but there are frequent busses for things that are not. There is a growing Indian and Middle Eastern population, adding to the already diverse city. Overall, Albany is a good place to live, especially if you're a fan of snow in the winter.
I'm from a small town called plattsburgh where everyone is overly friendly, the only thing i wish was different about albany were peoples attitudes. It's not the same welcoming feeling from everyone.
A small-town minded city with a lot to do, but that earns it's nickname of Small-bany. Lots of institutions of higher education, so plenty of student culture around. Lots to do out in the city, but close to nature with the Adirondacks and Catskills in driving distance.
