I love the area. It's perfect for someone looking for a small town to raise their children in. The schools and education are greatly improving and have improved tremendously in the past years. It has many available places to eat, things to do, little shops, and more

Albany is a very safe community. The cops are friendly, but stern when called to job. I would feel very safe walking home at night.
