The City of Albany, located on the banks of the Hudson River in the heart of the Capital District, is proud to be New York State’s Capital City. Albany is a beautiful destination, offering valuable resources for higher education and sustainable living, vibrant and active urban centers and desirable neighborhoods. The City’s deep-rooted history and heritage have shaped the City’s urban footprint, complimenting its natural setting along the waterfront and its reflection of historic architecture, major institutions, mixed neighborhoods and diversity of residents.
Also known as the anchor of New York’s Tech Valley, Albany is conveniently located amid some of the Northeast’s largest and most economically promising cities (New York City, Boston and Montreal, to name a few). The collaborative efforts of City staff, residents and key development partners continue to develop programs, diverse financing opportunities and transformational real estate projects that improve neighborhoods and energize the City’s business climate.
