Lark Street is the vibrant heart of Albany, the Capital of New York State. Across 10 blocks of the District, many unique and exciting businesses line the street offering one of a kind experiences for residents and visitors alike. From shopping to dining to nightlife to the arts, Lark Street has it all for a Live-Work-Play lifestyle. Often called the "Village in the City", Lark Street often evokes the feeling of neighborhoods in New York City. Throughout the year, many events take place on Lark Street including Art on Lark, LarkFEST and Winter WonderLark. Lark Street is the place to be!
“It’s lofty talk when the Lark Street Business Improvement District calls Lark Street ‘a premiere destination for entertainment, culture and urban life in the Capital Region,’ but we think they’re actually being modest. Home of the two largest street festivals in upstate New York, Lark Street is the warm pulse within Albany’s black heart, the flower busting up through the concrete edifice of the Empire State, the white dove of . . . hell, you get it: We like it here.”
