A few blocks from all of the downtown hotels is 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.

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 information on dining and shopping on Lark Street, please click here.
