Being from Albany for the last thirty years I have to agree with John, don't move here. Your opportunities are limited, just come for college and bar hopping. Weather is really frickin cold, lots of garbage all over the city, but I do love the people. Albany Med is full of stab victims every weekend, you just don't hear about them all. Very rugged, grimy city... pick somewhere else.
Raleigh looked good to me. Posted On: 1/2/2012 1:32:19 PM
I am from Albany, NY and visited Raleigh and Charlotte about a year and a half ago in search of a greener pasture. I wasn't really impressed with Charlotte, but Raleigh I really enjoyed. The people were very friendly to me as a Yankee with a NY accent (I have an accent?), constantly went out of their way to show me around, tell me where to go, what there is to do in town... very very hospitable not to mention the best seafood at the 42 st Oyster bar, mmm!! I went down looking for Chinatown and little Italy which is not the case, but if you ask around you can find whatever you're looking for. Of course there will be the "locals rule" wherever you go, but I didn't get that at all when I was down there. Lots of great golf courses nearby and I'm investigating taxes and other hidden costs of living. Taxes seem significantly less than NY, my dollar goes very far here. People even smile at you and ask you how you are doing. Very simple, easy living, absolutely loved it and can't wait to relocate.
