I live in the community. I love it. Unique apartment no unit is alike. If you are looking for museums, restaurants, bars, running paths, library, and parks within walking distance an idea situation. Crime has been non existent here. Police department a block away plus Albany Police Department uses Albany Housing Authority building as Satellite office. Parking is safe and secure. I have a late model new car no issues the past year. For a young urban professional or a old school guy like myself who was sick of suburbia a super ideal situation. Remember the key price breaker here. Rents here are running $550.00 and up. For a similar situation with all the perks in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Boston you can easily triple this amount. The only drawback I agree with the comment about older appliances. However if you are looking for a walking community loaded with perks this is a super ideal situation.
