Location of Albany, California

Albany is a city located in Alameda County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 16,444.

In 1908, A group of local women protested the dumping of Berkeley garbage in their community. Armed with two shotguns and a twenty-two-caliber rifle, they confronted the drivers of the wagons near what is now the corner of San Pablo Avenue and Buchanan Street. The ladies told the drivers of the horse-drawn garbage wagons to go home, which they did quickly and without complaint. Shortly thereafter, the residents of the town voted to incorporate as the City of Ocean View. In 1909, voters changed the name of the city, primarily to distinguish the City from many other communities in the area with the name of Ocean View. On a vote of 38 - 6, Albany was chosen as the new name, in honor of the birthplace of the City's first mayor, Mayor Frank Roberts.

it is currently the 12th most diverse city in California with an ethnic distribution of 50% Caucasian, 28% Asian, 12% Latino/Hispanic, 9% Black or Black or African American, and 1% other.

Albany High School is known as one of the best public schools of the San Francisco Bay Area for its academic excellence. Each year, 99% of its graduates attend college across the nation.

Due to Albany's excellent school district and recent economic turmoils, real estate prices have been rising steeply in recent years. The average price of a two bedroom house is around $480,000 (as of July 2002).
