Normanskill Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Residents can relax in the comfort of their home away from the hustle and the bustle of the city when they purchase a home in the beautiful Albany neighborhood of Normanskill. This residential area contains a variety of architectural home styles and all the houses are fronted by large lawns with trees offering shade and privacy. New Scotland Road runs right through the neighborhood, giving access to major thoroughfares, such as Slingerlands Bypass, Bender Avenue and the New York State Thruway toll road.
Residents don’t have to leave the neighborhood when they want to dine out, because there are several restaurants and sandwich shops within walking distance. There is an all-girls’ school right in the neighborhood, but there are many others in the surrounding neighborhoods. Normanskill is also quite close to the University at Albany-Surrey, allowing older residents to remain at home while pursuing post-secondary studies. There are also sporting venues at this location where they can engage in sports, or take in some of the action as a participant.
While there are no parks within the neighborhood itself, there are several parks in the general area and are only a short drive away. The playground of Buckingham Pond Park is one where parents and children can have a day out in the fresh air and have loads of fun at the same time. During the winter months, this is the perfect outdoor venue for ice-skating.
The pool at Lincoln Park is open during the summer months. This park is adjacent to the New York State Museum, where there is something for everyone. The changing exhibits mean that visitors can go all through the year and still have different artifacts to see.
