    Albany Reviews

    3 reviews
    The police are very visible and always responsive. It doesn't matter the situation; if the police are needed they will show up. Sometimes they can be a bit too responsive with little issues, but other than that, they are fine. The overall safety of the town is nothing to be worried about. Hardly anything bad ever happens in Albany.

    Everyone in Albany is really nice. They are all very welcoming and it's a very friendly environment. There's not much to do, but there's a huge park where the family can go sledding every year and there is a recreational center where teenagers go to play basketball every Wednesday and Friday free of charge.

    It is an okay place to live, but crime and drug use are increasing.
