The ever growing population in Albany, New York is now approximately 19,306,183 residents. Of the 19,306,183 people residing in Albany, New York more than half, 67.9% make up my race.

During our summer months, Albany has a free concert series that is offered to Capital Region residents. The summer concerts occur every Thursday and are called ?Alive at five.? I make an attempt to attend the concerts because they showcase various cultural music types and dedicate that Thursday night to the culture.

It is a celebration of the Polish-American culture. During this celebration, visitors learn about the culture through food, dance, and speakers.

[...] He makes me proud to say I am a New York resident. I believe this was a huge step for the African American community and our state. The Fall of Police Chief, James Tuffey Police Chief, James Tuffey has been with Albany County law enforcement since 1975. Recently the Police Chief of Albany, New York has stepped down and retired from his position.
