Albany, New York

Though most people think of New York City as the capital of the world in terms of business, fashion, art and culture, it isn't even the capital of its state. Albany, New York sits on the banks of the Hudson River in upstate New York, a far cry from its loud, boisterous and fashionable counterpart. Albany is filled with lush trees and gardens, building its importance as the capital city because of its location to the Erie Canal, an early transportation hub to the Northern Territories. Today, Albany is a lovely and welcoming city that boasts a small town feel, but the culture, architecture, history and education.
