It is one of the greatest neighborhoods in the city to live in. Importantly it has nearly everything a resident might want, beautiful scenery, proximity to schools and work. It is also one of the safest neighborhoods i have lived in. Nevertheless it has its drawbacks. It is very hard to find a nearby good shopping centers, grocery stores or restaurants.
We have lived in Menands for 30 years and it is a village where people look out after one another. Commute to downtown Albany is 5 minutes and extremely accessible to major highways. A wonderful place to raise a family with parks, library, village activities, placed of worship and top-rated school districts.
Overall, Menands has been a great city to live in. I live in a quiet and safe neighborhood, with necessary resources very close by. The pharmacy is right across the street, there is a gas station and grocery store nearby as well.
