Lark Street is one of Albany's most historic districts, and for many years, it has been a hotspot for small businesses, restaurants, and the arts! In addition to the area being very accessible, business hours aren't limited, so some places can stay open until 4:00am or for 24 hours. However, the city's ReZone Albany plan is set to implement new restrictions, which has Lark Street lovers concerned about the district's future.
