Albany is the fourth oldest city in America and the second oldest state capital in the United States. Located on the western banks of the Hudson River, about 150 miles north of New York City, Albany was originally explored by Henry Hudson in 1609 and settled by the Dutch starting in 1614. A city filled with a diversity of architectural styles and unique streetscapes, Albany proudly represents the Empire State. The historic photographs in Albany Revisited show Albany during the first half of the 20th century, when the city was rich in politics, the home of some of the most expensive and beautiful state government buildings in America, and the downtown bustled with shopping areas. For the first time, the most complete collection of photographs of the Albany Senators, the city s professional baseball team for 75 years, is compiled within, with rare images of the destructive fire of Albany s capitol building in 1911."
