A good wash-and-fold service in Albany?

washing machine dialDanny emails:

My wife and I just moved to an apartment building in center square with not great laundry facilities. In the past, we have used wash and fold services to save time. I would do some research myself, but high prices and the wide availability of laundromats make experiments complicated. There are a handful of reviews on the internet, but they provide inconsistent data about quality, price, forms of payment accepted, etc. Delivery is not a big deal in our case, but great to have the option. Any thoughts or recommendations you have will be appreciated! Thank you.

It sounds Danny and his wife are looking for a place around the Center Square/downtown Albany area, but delivery would probably widen that range.

So, got a suggestion for them? Please share! And sentence or two about why you're recommending a place can be helpful.

First off, welcome to the neighborhood! I hope you enjoy living in the area. I live in the center square area, on State st. off of Lark St. I have my own washer and dryer in the building, however, they are old and the dryer does not dry clothes without having to complete two cycles (which ends up being 2 hours). I decided to stop using them and just recently used Rocco's Laundromat, mainly because it is right up the street on Lark. Dirty Harry's is nearby as well, but is not as cheap. I would recommend using Rocco's, if you are close by. The dryers are nice commercial ones and my load was dry in less than an hour.

Check out Lucky Cat Laundromat. Brand new place downtown with high-tech machines and I think they do pickup/delivery as well.

Missing Sock, I believe is the name, over by the Price Chopper on Delaware. You can drop off and they do a good job. It's been a few years so I don't remember the cost

I live in center square and use a wash & fold laundromat right next to Grappa '72 and Plato's Closet (near Hannaford on Central Ave). It's $1 per pound with a ten pound minimum. They seem to specialize in wash and fold. You can drop off in the morning and pick up in the afternoon. My co-worker recommended them and I've been very happy. I tried finding something closer, but I didn't have any luck.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!

Bike share grew in both use and reach this year -- here's what CDTA's thinking about for next year
