This is an exciting part of Albany and great for late night fun. It has many bars and nightclubs throughout the area, but also be aware that there are some bad sections and things can get out of control very easily. Be Careful.

Lark street has a lot of cool little shops and eateries that are fun. Parking isn't always the easiest as something to be aware of.

This is a cute little street right on the edge of the historic district in Albany. There’s tons of shops and restaurants and bars that you can pop into while your’re walking. I highly recommend winding around in the historic district too and taking in...More

A walk down Lark Street used to be a visit to Greenwich Village of old. But many of the restaurants and shops have closed, and the feeling isn't there anymore. There are some treasures so don't totally avoid a visit, but you need to walk...More

I spent a great fall afternoon visiting the shops. Check out Yamaguchie for one of the trendiest decorative arts places I've ever seen. Amazing laser-cut wood furniture, jewelry, and decor plus unique 3-d printing art and clothing. Keep an eye on this ground-breaking place! Stop...More

Lark Street crosses a very nice neighborhood filled with beautiful houses, which date to the nineteenth century. It is lined with shops, but more importantly with interesting, casual dining places. We chose TapAsia and were delighted with our meal.

We strolled Lark St at about 1030/1100 hrs on a couple of days and then at about 1930 one evening. There are a few fun local coffee shops (Stacks Espresso is great!), a couple of restaurants that didn't interest us and some local shops quite...More

It is exciting to explore Lark Street and feel the artistic, culinary and service orientated entrepreneurs. Ever evolving shops. An interesting walk to view historic architecture and try a new place for a bite to eat, drink excellent coffee, enjoy a drink and shop.
