I've lived in Albany for all of my life and I've seen my fair share of crime but Albany Ga is the heartbeat of the south. We've been through a total of 2 Tornadoes and 1 Hurricane and when it counts the most we stick together. There is so much love in Albany everyone is friendly. The city has a pure heart of gold.

Some of the favorite places to visit that I enjoy personally is "Little Red Dog House" which a local favorite hot dog stand. Another place to eat that is heavily enjoyed by locals is the "Albany Fish Company" where they served delicious seafood.

Hello. I am from Albany, Ga

Albany has a lot to be desired, but before giving such a harsh opinion about it, please include every kind of shopping experience rather than finding the worse possible picture of a store that looks like a personal care facility.
