Upper Washington Avenue Reviews

Since Albany is a city with people from various cultural backgrounds, it may seem a little confusing and hectic in a way. However, I like the the fact that I like the fact that I can meet different types of people from diverse backgrounds. This leads to the general atmosphere of the city - with the fact that there are a lot of Asians living in this city, it was easier for me to get involved into this city, and its people. Moreover, Albany has a relatively well developed public transportation system, also known as CDTA. However, Albany has a relatively high crime rate near the downtown area which makes me nervous every night. Other than that, Albany is a great city.

1. I've heard of many international students smoking marijuana, and even students who sell marijuana.

2. I live in the mid-way of downtown and SUNY campus, I hear police car every two days. I hear them much more often during the weekends, when there are parties going on in the downtown areas.
This area offers a lot of stores, restaurants, jobs, transportation, and public places. There are a lot of very nice houses and apartments here. The roads are starting to get better. More new stores and restaurants are starting to open. There are staring to be more job opportunities. The daily wage has also increased. Schoolsbhave stayed the same. There should actually be a lot more high schools built here so students have a variety of high schools they can chose from.
