ituated between the charming neighborhoods of Washington Square and Washington Park, across from the University at Albany’s Downtown Campus, and just blocks from the lively Center Square and Downtown Albany, 27 Western Avenue is surrounded by a balanced combination of culture and nature. Washington Park offers scenic walking, bike trails, tennis courts, a pristine pond, and a live outdoor theatre. The park is also host to family-friendly events throughout the year, including Tulip Fest in the spring, the Capital Holiday Lights display in the winter, and more than a dozen musical concerts during the summer. Just a few blocks away is Lark Street, famous for its bohemian-chic culture, eccentric boutiques, quaint pubs, and annual music and arts festivals, Lark Fest and Art on Lark.
27 Western Avenue is conveniently located just one mile from the NYS Capitol building and City Hall, the NYS Museum, the Albany Institute of History & Art, and several other historic sites. Pearl Street, the heart of the bustling nightlife in Downtown Albany, houses several bars, clubs, restaurants, and theaters, as well as the Times Union Center, Albany’s sports and entertainment complex. Broadway is home to Albany’s free summer concert series on the river, Alive at Five, as well as an array of multicultural taverns and a brewery.
With entrances on Washington Avenue and Western Avenue, both of which sit on the CDTA bus line, 27 Western Avenue is easily accessed by public transportation and is within walking distance of all of Downtown Albany’s exciting and artistic features.
