Review of Albany, New York

Star Rating - 10/3/2020
I’ve lived just outside of Albany in Clifton Park and its always been decent for me. The town is nice and theres a lot to do. The prices are a little expensive including taxes but that's normal. I can drive to New York City or Boston in 2-3 hours so it’s pretty central. You can also go to the Adirondacks and get a great view of nature. The weather well that’s a whole different story. It is very bipolar. In the winter time it can get very very very frigid and cold. In summer the majority of days are in the upper 80’s or 90s. Summer heat here is also very humid, maybe even worse than New York City. The spring and fall can be very bipolar and you can experience 4 seasons in one week. Like actually it was 90 one weekend then snowing the next. Overall is Albany is a good place to live if you like 4 seasons and have money.
