Albany’s Lark Street enjoying retail renaissance

April 19, 2018 06:25 PM ALBANY - Lark Street in Albany is undergoing a renaissance of sorts. Five ribbon cuttings will be held in the next seven days, marking a total of nearly 20 new businesses to set up shop in the past year. The neighborhood has historically been bar and restaurant-heavy. However, the new businesses are more diverse and include a pet store, a barber, a boutique and a jewelry store. The manager at Bombers, a Lark Street staple, tells NewsChannel 13 different types of stores and restaurants will attract a new crowd, which benefits all the local businesses.
