The albany symphony is much better than people may perceive. likely one of the finest small city orchestras,with Grammy nominations and awards to prove it! :-) It deserves more support, more attendees than it gets. My worry is what happens when David moves on? (it's his 26th or 27th season). His efforts and personality have driven so much of the improvement. (Dogs of Desire, Instrument Petting Zoo, American Music Festival, Sunday Symphonies( with D.A.M. playfully taking on historic roles))

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
