Looking for a little advice.
I am a college grad taking my first job in Albany, Ny. I am looking for a community where i would fit in as a young professional and that is somewhat close to shopping, restaurants, entertainment, nightlife. My office is in downtown Albany, but don't have a problem making a reasonable commute to work. I am not sure if I want to live in the city of Albany or in the suburbs. I have heard good things about east greenbush or rennsselaer? Also, I will be renting an apartment so any opinions about apartments is also welcome. I am moving from Missouri so I am willing to listen to any one that has any advice!


Thanks

You might want to check out Woodlake apartments. Nice amenities, close to shopping, not too far from downtown. I've had friends who lived there, and all said it's a nice place to live. Good luck with your move!

If you want to be close to the action look for something east of Washington Park in and around Lark Street. It's a very lively urban area with lot's of young professionals.

Default Stay in the city

I totally agree w/ ProvGuy, the previous poster. Live downtown to be near the action. You're young, you have plenty of time to live in the suburbs later. Have fun, near all the action, when you settle down to get married, have kids, move to the burbs.
