This is the place where they hold the fascist rallies lead by Mussolini, or so I've read by at least one architecture critic.

Line of Trees

At the Empire State Plaza on this cloudy grey day. At least it's spring time ...

Chapel Thru the Trees

Looking at the Cathedral of the Immaculate in downtown Albany through trees starting to turn green at the Empire State Plaza.

677 Flag

Looking across Albany's rather desolate and abandoned landscape, also known as State Street, the primary street in the Capitol of New York.

Bus Turns On To Eagle Street

In the distance is the former Mansion Row, never rebuilt after fire ripped through it like five years ago, the big Besicorp Natural Gas Plant, and the OGS East Parking Garage.

Doesn't this picture make New York State seem so benevolent and friendly? I guess I should have found one of the three days a year, when it's sunny and not too hot or cold on the plaza. It's what $2 billion dollars buys one.
