Albany's South End, just south of Downtown, developed largely in the nineteenth century as both immigrants and working families were drawn to the booming Albany-area economy. Much of its diverse housing stock can be found in its three historic districts (Mansion, Pastures and Groesbeckville).
The South End today remains a diverse community - architecturally, socially, economically and culturally. While the South End shows clear signs of disinvestment, since completion of the Capital South Plan in 2007, the neighborhood has seen:
New Bus Service:Through successful advocacy for the neighborhood's transit needs and partnership with CDTA, new bus routes were created: #7 Glenmont, connecting residents to commerce and employment, and the #100 Mid City Belt, connecting the South End to local hospitals so residents could access jobs and reach medical care.
