South End Improvement Corp.
Making the South End a great place to live, play and grow.
The South End Improvement Corporation is a not-for-profit neighborhood preservation corporation serving the South End of the City of Albany, NY. We work to help residents improve the condition of their homes and the quality of their neighborhoods.
