Review of Albany, New York

No, the economy is not good, stop lying to people.
Star Rating - 8/8/2012
It's a bad place to move if you want to earn a living wage. I hear rumors of this being tech valley part 2 and that there are a lot of jobs but I don't see it.

Wait, there are people employed--those who are busy bunging up the system by holding off on information for autism services, medicaid, and anything people are SUPPOSED to be getting.

I can't believe the attitudes on some of the people here. They are always spoiling for a fight. I also live around some very dumb hillbillies.

Overall this area is cheap and if you can get a job then you can live okay. It's filled with people with chips on their shoulders and druggies but hey, it's the capital, right?
