  1. Troy is great! Right next to Albany, the Hudson River and a ton of colleges. The landscape is always beautiful and the night life is fantastic. It has it’s rough patches of crime but like any city you’ll find that.

    If you have the time and near by I say go through Troy & give it a chance. You’ll be surprised at how many beautiful things you’ll find.
