Get the door, it's the liquor store
Albany is the capital of one of the mightiest states in the union, and though it’s by no means the... first city you think of when you hear “New York,” it holds its own. The Hudson River flows right by downtown, which is where the massive Empire State Plaza puts on a tour-de-force for the ages. We’re talking reflecting pools and an underground shopping mall full of awesome artwork (and perfect for those long winters). There’s also The Egg, where performance arts happen on an epic scale. On either side of the plaza are the New York State Museum and the New York State Capitol, built in the 1800s. Living in this city means walkable streets, casually stunning natural surroundings and a culture rich in arts. Incredible food is never more than a couple of blocks away. From shopping to industry, it’s all here — and whether you want to spend a weekend in NYC, Montreal or Boston, they’re all right next door. Albany also enjoys alcohol delivery through Drizly. Simply order your favorite beers, wines and liquors from our app or website and they’ll show up at your door in 60 minutes or less.
