  • If you were blindfolded and dropped off here you would think Albany is the most beautiful and elegant city in the country. Its a great place to walk around something always going on all four seasons of the year. Great place for pictures.
  • Very nice at night time and a premium place to play Pokemon go
  • Beautiful park and architecture! This place offers a venue for any occasion, plenty of sculptures and shady spots that are perfect for relaxing, reflection and recreation!
  • Cool architecture but bad for traversing the city by car. Walkable for pedestrian
  • This is Albany's version of Brazilia with white marble office towers. It's a good place to bring visitors as it is impressive and you get a good view of Albany from the observation deck of the tower building, which is 41 sotries. Modern art decorates both the plaza level )sculptures), the outside area, and the concourse level (paintings), which is beneath the street and stretches 1/4 mile from the Capitol to the State Museum.
