The city developed on the west bank of the Hudson River, about 10 miles south from where it meets the Mohawk River. After the US gained independence following the American Revolution, Albany became the capital of New York in 1797. It was one of the world’s first cities to install public water mains, sewer lines, natural gas lines, and electricity, and these infrastructure and utilities projects attracted new industries to the Hudson Valley throughout the 19th century.

Today, the state capital of New York receives a steady amount of private jet traffic from government flights, its thriving tech industries, and a regional population of more than 1.1 million (Troy, Schenectady, and Saratoga Springs), making it the third largest metro area in the state of New York.

As the capital of NY, many major companies have offices in the city, including Fortune 500 listees such as American Express, J.P. Morgan and Chase, Merrill Lynch, General Electric, Verizon, Goldman Sachs, International Paper, and Key Bank.

Day trips from Albany include trips to the Adirondack Mountains, located just over 2 hours away; the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts; and there are many state parks within driving distance, including Thacher State Park.
