Easy place to get around & there are signs of revival, but I'd still be leery...

Depending on where you live, school & property taxes are extremely high (could more than double your mortgage payments) & the crime is off the charts- gangs, robberies, car break ins, theft, burglaries, lots of drugs & shootings too. Hamilton hill is the worst area- has been for many years & doesn't seem to be getting better (although the downtown, stockade & some surrounding areas are being revived). Mont Pleasant has deteriorated to the point that it's barely livable and Bellevue is on its way down. Some of the nearby towns/villages are better, though, like Rotterdam, Niskayuna, Guilderland, Colonie & Scotia or Glenville with property taxes that are much more reasonable. It was a great area when the GE plant was fully up & running (until the 1960s), but the company has mostly abandoned the area, taking some of the best jobs with it. There is a new casino nearby & some other small businesses are moving in downtown, so I think it could improve over time so long as crime rates can be held down & hopefully reduced. The best thing I could say about it is that it's very convenient - with many little stores & restaurants within walking distance or on the bus line.
