Review of Albany, New York

Albany SUCKS
Star Rating - 1/27/2013
I agree with all of the negative comments. I moved here for college and law school. I don't feel safe walking here at night and there is no culture aside from nightlife, a few nice restaurants and art places, etc. The drug and crime rates are through the roof, the winters are brutal- I could go on all day. Unless you are coming for a good reason, i.e, a cheap college degree - avoid Albany at all costs. I know so many people who have been the victim of a violent crime here- from being mugged to raped to assaulted to robbed. Awful place to live.
