Rapp Road

Pyramid’s new proposals related to the apartment complex it hopes to build on Rapp Road include dead-ending Rapp Road to prevent through traffic, and moving the end of Gipp Road.

The Albany County Planning Board told Pyramid the ring road around Crossgates Mall is already very congested. Chairman Dominic Rigosu told Pyramid, “At some point, you have to say you have to mitigate it,” referring to the current traffic situation.

Two local residents whose families’ roots are in Shubuta, Mississippi — a town known for two horrific group lynchings — talk about the way that their relatives responded to the racism they encountered in their hometown. 

Springsteen Road is renamed for Emma Dickson, the woman who helped create the historical legacy of the Rapp Road community. 

The Historic Albany Foundation is offering a walking tour of the Rapp Road neighborhood on Thursday, Aug. 17, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
