Prefer to live near Washigton Park area (I think)...professional looking for cool areas to live within walking distance of work (thus the Washington Park preference) Any advice on what to look for/stay away from?

Thanks!

Look at the streets surrounding Washington Park and Lark Street (Center Square area). They're the hip, young professional neighborhoods. Lark Street has a bunch of cool bars, restaurants and stores. The apartments there will be mostly older, brownstone apartments. The average rent in the area will be around $750 for a one-bedroom apartment.

Another area you can look around would be the area surrounding St. Rose. That's a more college friendly area and there are some great bars on Madison Ave, near Western Ave. This area is a bit more residential but has many apartments as well.

I'd also recommend living in downtown Albany on Broadway, N. Pearl Street, or State Street. There's a great selection of newer apartments and you're obviously close to restaurants, stores, banks, etc.
