Albany County

New York’s Capital Region is the seat of the state government. Because the state is the largest local employer and the number one consumer of goods and services, the Capital Region enjoys a very stable economy and consistently low unemployment rates. Lawmakers and their activities are a local news focus, which encourages citizens of the area to be informed and involved. Capital Region residents welcome the changes and progress in the community brought about by legislators from around the state.

Albany County’s Hudson River Valley is rich with the history of our country. From early Native Americans, to the Dutch explorer Henry Hudson, to the Revolutionary War, to the latest in innovative high technology – "The Tech Valley of The East".
