  capitol at Albany, based on Paris' Hotel de Ville

The state capitol building in Albany has one of the most detailed and ornate exteriors among capitol buildings in the United States. One of few without a dome, the structure incorporates few separate architectural styles, leaving today's building appearing little different from a nobleman's palace in the Old World. Inside, the congressional and gubernatorial chambers are posh with marble and ornate trappings. Throughout its architecture, the State Capitol Building rightfully belongs on the list of America's architectural masterpieces.

Address: Empire State Plaza
