In choosing a place to EAT-SHOP-PLAY, you will notice the green stars () next to the business name in this directory. These are businesses that are members of the Albany Downtown Association. They monetarily support the association in all that we do, which includes our beautiful hanging baskets in the Spring/Summer, our Free Movies at Monteith in the summer, and our Fall and Winter family friendly events in Downtown. When making your choices for shopping or dining or services, we encourage you to support our member businesses, as it helps support their choice to be a registered member, which in-turn benefits all of Downtown Albany.
