“Pearl Street: It’s Your Street”

In an effort to combat the image of Albany’s Pearl Street as the downtown epicenter of drunken revelry and disorderly conduct, several of the downtown main drag’s restaurants and bars have teamed up with the Albany Downtown BID to create this television ad.

    its a start but i agree, it does not usually look like that on a friday night! at least they are making an effort to brand downtown as a destination for more than college kids, i wish them much luck with the campaign :)
