I have had a number of meetings in Albany in the last few years, including Sept/02, March/03, March/04 and now April/04. Since these are business trips, I usually have very little spare time to seek out the main attractions of the city. Consequently, this page mostly contains my impressions of things that I have seen or done quite fleetingly! My usual method of getting to Albany is to fly to Montreal and then use a rental car for the 3.5 hour drive south through the Adirondack Mountains (on our first trip though, my wife and I drove across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont to get there by way of Lake Placid). From the two brief visits that I did have to downtown Albany, I was impressed by the architecture that I saw! Also, on this latest April/04 trip, there appears to be some very interesting places to visit not too far away as well. The opening photo shows a very impressive and deceptively huge building located in front of the State Capital building (which was under extensive renovation with scaffoldings when I was there in April, 2004).
I had another short stay in Albany, mid-November, 2004. I was flying through from one meeting in Kansas City, Missouri and heading west of Albany, to Cooperstown, NY, for another meeting before heading home.
A closer look at some of the detailed carving on the State Education building!
