Its looks like a fairy tale castle in the middle of the city, next to the Capitol building. When it was completed in 1883 no doubt it was one the most beautiful places in the States. Since we came late in the afternoon, it was too late to enter to see it's inside beauty.

My review is just about the beauty of this place. I recommend history buff tourists to stop in and see the beautiful interior and check out the restaurant too!

I paid my parking ticket here once. I also get to sue tenants that owe us money. Heads up, they have a metal detector, so leave your shives in the car!

There are not many things to see in Albany but the City Hall is a building that is woths a detour. A splendid staircade, wonderful court rooms and a very intersting and unique architecture. If you are somewhere near, go and see it.

Combine this with a visit to downtown as it will only take a short while to visit. The architecture is beautiful, each floor has some art to view ( ie paintings).

this edifice has beautiful court rooms and the tower has a carillon that plays at noon time. It is a must see building while in Albany. Please note due to it being a city hall. You must go through a metal detector.

I have searched real estate records here, filed divorce papers here, represented clients here, served jury duty here and had a great lunch here. The building is ancient and its history is worth learning. Bustling during the work week, I don't even know if you can get into the building on the weekend. A famous Dutch historic landmark.

H.H. Richardson's best work in the Romanesque style, finished in 1883. Exterior detail is stunning and features many perfectly proportioned arches. Interior characterized by lots of wood finishes, including a wooden revolving entry door. Hasn't changed much in over 100 years (except for security hardware). Kind of like entering a time machine. As a public building, anyone can walk in... More
