Downtown Albany

When you’re not in class or studying, you’ll want to explore the capital city. Located on the banks of the historic Hudson River, 150 miles north of New York City, Albany is one of the oldest surviving settlements from the original thirteen colonies, and the longest continuously chartered city in the United States.

Its beautiful architecture is testimony to its long storied history. Downtown you’ll find one-of-a-kind shops, eclectic restaurants and pubs, amazing museums, casual sidewalk cafes, and exciting theatres and entertainment venues.
