A town in southwest Georgia that was chartered in 1838 in which the founder chose the name of Albany because of its similarity to Albany, New York, which is another main city at the head of a navigable river. In 1988 Albany, GA made national headlines as the "Murder Capital of America," with the highest murder rate per capita in the United States. No shit. In 2000 this city with a population of 76,939 citizens was officially the "Blackest City in America" with African Americans occupying 64.8% of the entire population living within the city limits. That's right, not Compton not Harlem not even Atlanta is dirtier than Albany, GA. Many rappers claim to be from what they call the "Dirty South," but really they have no idea what the real "Dirty South" is, or what it is like to live there. Everyone here is racist, and I mean everyone; black, white, hispanic, whatever. The city's government is comprised of both main races, but most of the political decisions are based on racial issues.
<The armpit of the South. Very hot and humid weather year round. Many southern stereotypes live here like the well-to-do southern gentleman which is really just a spoiled kid who took over his father's business, and at the age of 30 still refers to his father as "daddy." Caucasians who have established themselves here live in the main golf course which actually holds debutant balls for girls who've just graduated from highschool. If you want a job in this town, you or your father had better know someone that has their own business. Otherwise your applications will be discarded for family members or friends who are usually under-qualified and lazy.>
1. Albany is a racist fucking town. Everybody hates anybody who is not a member of his/her race, and usually do their best to pass this trait to their children.
2. Why is there still nothing to do in Albany!?
3. Man, I hate paying the welfare for those damn blacks so they can just sit at home in Albany's projects all day and watch TV!
4. You're going to Monroe Highschool? Shit man, you're gonna be the only white person there. Hey, just lie about your address so you can go to Albany High with me.
Note: Both of the above mentioned highschools are public but have districts; where all who live within a certain district can only attend that district's public highschool or else they must pay for a private highschool.
5. Man fuck college. I'm gonna work for my daddy at his business in Albany.
6. Kids, lock your car doors when we cross the bridge into the east side of Albany.

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.
