Albany is a city on the east shore of San Francisco Bay in northwestern Alameda County, California.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.5 square miles (14 km2),

Albany is located on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, bordering the city of Berkeley
to the south and east, and the Contra Costa County cities of El Cerrito and Richmond to the north.
Albany’s northern and southern borders are defined by two creeks, Codornices Creek on the south and
Cerrito Creek on the north. Cerrito Creek takes its name from “El Cerrito de San Antonio”,
now known as Albany Hill. The hill’s unusual location near the bay shore makes it a prominent
landmark in the East Bay. The rest of the city is relatively flat by Bay Area standards, except
for a small area near the base of the Berkeley Hills.

Albany’s waterfront has undergone significant man-made changes; the most prominent landform
is now the Albany Bulb, a former garbage landfill jutting out into San Francisco Bay.
The bulb was the site of a small art colony and shanty town until it was cleared to turn
the area into part of the new Eastshore State Park.

University Village, a housing unit of the University of California Berkeley, is located in Albany.
