Empire State Plaza

Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza - one of the most spectacular capital centers in the country. The Plaza is the seat of government operations for New York State - it occupies 98 acres of land, with 11,000 employees in 10 buildings. The Plaza exists because of the vision and determination of one man, Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller, who wanted to create "the most electrifying capital in the world." To fulfill his purpose, Rockefeller commissioned Wallace K. Harrison, a personal friend and chief architect for Rockefeller Center, to be the principal architect for the Plaza. Construction began in 1965 and was completed in 1978. Since its completion, The Empire State Plaza has become a cultural center for thousands of visitors each year. From the New York State Capitol to the New York State Museum, the Empire State Plaza is full of things to do. Special events include festivals, concerts, and tours are just some of the things to do at the Empire State Plaza
Be sure to visit the concourse, "the underground city", a quarter-mile stretch of shops, cafeterias, and a world-class abstract art collection with major works by Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and dozens of famous contemporary artists.
For any additional information concerning the Plaza, contact the Plaza Visitor Center at (518) 474-2418. The Plaza Visitor Center is located off the main concourse, near The Egg and Convention Center. Visitor assistants and Plaza Ambassadors also staff information booths on the north and south end of the concourse.
