  • Probably one of the most beautiful and unique government buildings in the U.S.! An architectural nirvana that must be seen in order to really appreciate its awesome, stylistic, and grand design. Definitely worth the trip to Albany to see it. This is what one would expect to find in the "Empire State". I would add a + to it's Five Star rating! The adjacent Empire State Plaza contains a very impressive set of marble-clad office towers, as well as the New York State Library and Museum.
  • The capitol building of the great state of New York is something worthwhile visiting for everyone especially New Yorkers. The building is a magnificent architecture with spectacular beauty. Stone walls, pillars, staircases and dimly lit hallways. And the most beautiful thing is the general assembly hall. Just walking through the hallways is half the adventure. The capitol building also connects to other buildings via underground tunnel.
  • There is nothing like the only State Capitol without a dome. The restoration has been perfect. It is truly one of a kind, and I'm proud to have had the privilege of working in the building. The free tour is worth it.
  • The outside of the building (in my opinion) is a better sight than the inside, but if you have time it's worth a look.
  • Years of living in Albany and I'd never been before tonight! So impressive and epic! Full of rich history and detail everywhere you look.
