Albany: Attractions and more...
The beauty of Albany lies in its perfect blend of the old and the new. This is best exemplified by the New York State Capitol, built in classic architectural style, juxtaposed against the modern structure of Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza. The State Plaza houses several memorials like the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Martin Luther King Memorial.
Relive the history of Albany by visiting the Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site. The Albany Institute of History and Art provides a complete understanding of the culture and the history of Albany. The Dutch heritage of the city can be witnessed at the Pruyn House.
Art enthusiasts must visit the Plaza Art Collection at the Empire State Plaza, the world’s largest collection of modern art at a non-museum public site.
The Tulip Festival, celebrated to venerate the city’s Dutch heritage, is the most famous festival in Albany. Larkfest, in May, is the largest street festival in the state.
