I have read multiple articles about how Albany should not be one's first choice for residence.

Doing a quick google map however and a few more searches I find people recommend Leesburg frequently. What about Sylvester? Putnam? Dawson?

I have good chance at getting a job at P&G but want a nice affordable place for my family.

I wouldnt live in Albany if you paid me too!!! Run down,gangs,people always breaking in homes .I see it everyday! Also schools are not so good.Everyone that lives in albany or I should say alot of them want to go to Lee Co: Schools...My husband and I have 4 kids 3 which go to school in Lee Co and it is the best school as far as lee vs Albany. but if u do not have kids I guess u would be ok as long as you find a good spot to live. also my Father works at P&G as been for years now.also homes in LEE Co. go for as low as $120 and up or u could look at a foreclosure lots of homes that are being foreclosed on .My husband and I are looking to move to Fl soon I hope...just to get away! BUT...if u have anymore questions just ask

This is an unbiased map dividing good and bad town pockets by degree of color (NOTE darkest is safest). Run your cursor over general map area until you find Albany and places nearby. No economic development hoopla/town Gerrymandering, no hurt occupant feelings. Just statistics. Hope this helps you. I know it does for me--a single woman in pursuit of safe towns to roost when I can land a job. Feel free to share with other posters if you like.

Albany - I would stay north of Slappey Drive. Around the Westover Blvd./Lake Park area is nice. Doublegate/St.Andrews/Stonebridge is nice as well.

Dawson is a little town...3 lights, not much to it. The Historic District is okay, outside of that (and within the city limits) I would steer clear. There is a lot of night activity, but I never felt unsafe where I lived.

There are some nice subdivisions on 82 in between Albany and Sasser that are worth looking at as well.

Depending on the area of Lake Blackshear you are coming from, time to Albany is 30-50 minutes.

I moved to Albany for work and thankfully I enjoy my job and feel relatively content inside my apartment, but the city itself offers so little that I can't picture myself staying here much longer. Shopping, culture, entertainment, outdoor recreation...I feel like I have to leave town to experience any of it. It isn't a place for a non-religious 26 year old man.

If you have a family and are religious and active in church and enjoy hunting and fishing then you can probably be content here.
