Its ironic that that the original name of the City, Ocean View, was changed in 1909 because there was some confusion with other towns called Ocean View. The name Albany was selected in honor of the first Mayor, Frank Roberts, who was from Albany, NY. Today, there are 34 cities or towns in the world named Albany of those 28 are located in the United States. We happen to think our Albany is the best!
