Young, thirty-something couple, no kids, relocating from Baltimore to the Albany area. Looking to rent, not buy.
----------------------------------------

We're new to the forum, and looking for suggestions for interesting places to live in the Albany area. We work from home, so are pretty flexible on where we can live, although we do need to have easy access to an airport.

No kids, so school districts aren't really a consideration. We're interested in possibly renting a house, hopefully in an area where amenities are within walking distance.

Just generally looking for suggestions of nice, safe, cultural neighborhoods. Not ruling out the surrounding areas around Albany. But we're definitely more interested in neighborhoods with local flavor - whether urban or suburb.

This is pretty vague, we know - but we'd be grateful for anyone's suggestions!!!!

Look at urban Albany neighborhoods like Center Square/Lark Street, Pine Hills, Helderburg and maybe even the Mansion neighborhood. In Schenectady, look at the Upper Union neighborhood and maybe parts of Downtown too. In Troy, try the Hill neighborhoods, Osgood in the South Troy neighborhood and the South Central neighborhoods. Cohoes has been trying to revitilize it's Downtown and Saratoga Springs is a smaller city with a nice nightlife scene.

Here's some information for you to look at:
