What Bert Has To Say About Albany Metro Area


Albany is a commercial center for the pecan and peanut farming area of southwest Georgia. A fairly robust economy and the availability of services make this clean, quiet town quite livable. Low cost, economic incentives and a favorable location have made it a minor manufacturing center, with Procter & Gamble, Miller Brewing and Merck among blue-chip employers. Downtown is plain but has undergone some redevelopment on the Flint River waterfront, bringing some minor entertainment and cultural amenities. Downsides include persistent summer heat and limited cultural and advanced educational opportunities.
