Welcome to Pine Hills!
Pine Hills is a large, diverse, historic, and vibrant neighborhood. We have an exciting mix of families, homeowners and college students with lots of things to see and do. Pine Hills Neighborhood Association (PHNA) is among the largest and oldest in Albany.
We invite you to explore our website and our neighborhood. Inside you'll learn about the
Pine Hills Neighborhood Association and about Pine Hills today and yesterday, places to go and things to do, and who we are. If you'd like to find out about membership, visit our Membership Page.
If you live in Pine Hills, you may learn things you didn't know and get more connected to your neighbors and PHNA. You may want to join the Neighborhood Watch. If you're looking for a home, we invite you to Explore and learn more about us. If you have a business, we have Resources to help you.
Check the events Calendar for neighborhood and community shows, meetings and other gatherings which you might like to attend. If you know of something we've missed - and which you think would be of interest to your neighbors - please Contact Us with the details.
