Is there a site in Albany area for info on specific area landlords? As in honest vs dishonest? Are there any local laws to protect tenents from landlords that are only interested in turning over apts,evicting w/out just cause, ripping tenents off with bogus reason for not returning security? Landlords that claim repairs they didn't or don't have to make? Or does one have to be a lawyer to make sure they will have a place to live and not have to keep moving?

Call the Codes Enforcement office. The Codes Enforcement Officer won't be able to recommend or bash, but he'll know if there have been "issues" with specific locations and owners. He or she also knows what repairs need to be made for the place to be habitable.
It's a good idea to video or take pictures of the place when you move in so the landlord won't be able to claim, when you leave, that you trashed the place.
