New York State:
Albany

Albany is the capital of the U.S. state of New York. Albany is located on the west bank of the Hudson River approximately 220 km north of New York City. The area was settled by Dutch colonists in 1614. In 1664, the English took over the Dutch settlements, renaming the settlement as Albany. Albany was incorporated as a city in 1686. It became the capital of New York in 1797.

We visited Albany the first time on September 20, 2015 on our way to see friends in New York City.
On the way back we stopped in Albany just to take
a tour of NY State Capitol.

All photos of lanterns found in Albany were taken on September 20, 2015. For the Capitol lanterns see NY State Capitol page.
