2013 Annual ConferenceNYS Reading Association
October 27-29, 2013
Hilton Albany, Albany, NY

On behalf of the Albany County Convention & Visitors Bureau, we are delighted to welcome the New York State Reading Association 2013 Annual Conference to New York State's historical capital city.  We are certain your  experience will be productive and personally rewarding and will also provide you with an opportunity to discover all that Albany has to offer. From shopping and dining, to arts and entertainment, to countless eclectic restaurants, Albany has it all for you to take in!

The Hilton Albany is located in the heart of downtown Albany and just minutes from the contemporary design of the Empire State Plaza, completed as a vision of Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller in 1978.  The Plaza was built not only to serve as government offices, but as a center of arts, culture and community activity. The New York State Museum (the largest State Museum in the country), the Empire State Art Collection, the Empire State Performing Arts Center (known as The Egg for its unusual and distinctive design) and the New York State Capitol are all contained at the Plaza. In addition, you will be able to visit the Albany Institute of History & Art.

Located just a short walk from downtown Albany's business district is Lark Street, often referred to as the "Greenwich Village" of the Capital Region.  With countless restaurants, cafes, art galleries, boutiques and more, Lark Street is reminiscent of the great and colorful neighborhoods of Manhattan.  For more information on dining and shopping on Lark Street, please click here.

Explore Wolf Road and you will find many options for shopping and dining, including over 40 restaurants and Colonie Center Shopping Mall featuring L.L. Bean, P.F. Chang's, The Cheesecake Factory, Sephora, Christmas Tree Shops and Regal Cinemas Stadium 13.
