History and culture come alive in New York’s capital city
As one of the oldest state capitals in the country, Albany is rich in history. The city’s architecture is truly stunning, giving the community a timeless quality. The NY State Museum and the Albany Institute of History and Art are local landmarks, bringing locals the opportunity to soak in a collection of permanent and rotating exhibitions. The nightlife in Albany is an eclectic mix sure to please any taste, from breweries to comedy clubs, primarily along Pearl Street and Lark Street. Sports fans always have something to keep them occupied, from ValleyCat baseball games at Bruno Stadium in the summer to Devils hockey matches in the winter.
Nearly 20,000 students attend classes at SUNY Albany, and their influence on the local culture can be felt in the Midtown Strip area, near the downtown campus.
