The number ONE party place to chill, where 16 years old go to Paulies and the Post, while any legal drinker heads to WT's for their awesomely amazing wings and 85 cent beers at happy hour. Quite the college town where cabs are 3 bucks a head, girls wear tank tops and flipflops in the middle of the dead winter, you can buy pizza at 4AM, chalk your id and expect the bouncer to not only let you in but complement the fine art. Every other person who goes to Albany is either from NYC and LI and don't understand the difference between Upstate and Western NY, wear abercrombie and hollister with their tims. You wonder why people play in the water on fountain day when you obviously see snow on the ground, can't remember why you came here, except for the fact that you couldn't make Cornell or NYU and wanted to save money. Actually, you had no choice, but you read enough about the school in Princeton Review. The public bus makes its own schedule when you need it on weekends, and your car stays in its parking spot until the snow starts to melt in april. You envy those who live in the mustard complex with their heat and free laundry, but your lottery number is well over a 1000 so you head downtown, where you can never sleep, occasionally have your car towed or hit by another driver, and take advantage of the location by becoming a local at cagneys, chubby's, sadies, or stonecrow. You don't understand "downtown" past Quail street until you become 21 and venture off to Lark and S. Pearl. Ahh, this is ALBANY for you.
I've got 8 dollars and need to get smashed, that's cover cab, cover, and drinks in Albany!

An extremely out of date city.
A city full of closeminded citizens that Stare at anyone dressed in black.
A city full of drunks, Mentally retarded, Ghetto people.
A city full of drugs and all the above.
A city full of people who hate their lives

a small town in northern california right next to berkeley. supposedly good schools, i guess they are ok. Doesn't seem to have a lot of drugs/alcohol but does in some places. BART tracks are heard everywhere. No one has heard of it. One square mile. Part of the middle school is in neighbooring city of El Cerrito. Only one old lady clothing store. No restaurants. All that stuff is in berkeley/el cerrito. Solano biggest merchandise. But most of solano is in berkeley. El Cerrito plaza= el cerrito. =p

The capital city of the state of New York. Used to have a big DDR scene at Crossgates Mall, but the scene has pretty much died since the end of summer 2004, with the occasional beginner level player. The actual city is bigger than you would think. With a lot of people walking around in both Crossgates Mall and the actual city (Crossgates Mall is actually situated in Guilderland, a suburb about 1.5 miles from the inner city). Julian's, a club in downtown, is a good place to have a party, dance, eat food, and get some good ole beer. While being a small city, it still has a lot to do and a good punk/emo/hardcore scene.
Albany, also known as "EAST BUMFUCK" to a bunch of ignorant people from NYC is possibly the best city in Upstate.

the good place to go if your from the country looking for some "excitement" in the most mundane sense of the term. a lot of ppl. go to school there from long island and NYC = rich bitches and farms in upstate new york. its okay for maybe a week and then u get bored ESPECIALLY if your from the city. kids there have attitudes. ppl. dress all vintage-y/artsy but then contradict themselves by buying out all of the hollister fall collection. posers. kids who are "punk" have doctor parents who visit every couple days. there are a lot of art and music students in the area. they r the most ridiculous of them all. a few select people are genuine but the rest just wish they could understand anything at all. they fail out of school and get their "allowance" taken away. lots of hippies, weed usage, shrooms, etc etc etc. not a good atmosphere for busy, motivated ppl. there are A LOT of slutty girls trying to beat the girl to guy ratio by "giving it there all" ppl. are very cocky, even hideous kids who have no chance. the bars in the area are okay...nothing compared to boston where im from. music scenes alright ...there are a few too many college bands with cases on themselves even though they havent made it yet, just b/c they've played successfully in local places doesnt mean u get to give up. LOTS of metrosexuals. many guys swing both ways, and dress way too well. appearances are important to ppl in albany, but looks can AND ARE deceiving. the punk kids r almost completely alll posers. just wearin the clothes playin it cool. k back to albany...its fun for awhile.. BOMBERS, lark street is great, paulys is a lot of fun when theres no where else to go, u see everyone at paesans when they r drunk. if u meet good, real ppl its a lot of fun hanging out in albany. its no boston or new york city...but its a good place to go (citywise) if your slummin' and dont have the energy or willpower to take on the big guns. good for country-folk lookin for adventure BAD for city ppl.....city ppl RUN AAWAAAAAAAAYYY!!!!!
boy: hey what's up im from albany.
girl: really...u grew up here???
boy: no i go to school here...im really from outside of troy.
oh...so your from outside of troy...not albany
boy: no i dont want ppl to know i grew up on a farm so i pretend im from albany cuz it sounds cooler and then my punk, horrible childhood act works out better and is more believable
girl: oh cool your from albany...wanna get high and fuck
boy: sure, as long as your okay with me never speaking to u again after and with everyone in school finding out so they know im a real gangsta... bitch.
