If Walls Could Talk Blog

As we hinted at last week with our #LookUp photoblog, the architecture in Albany is simply incredible.

The buildings that make up a place are often the first things that you notice if you've never been there before, but the beauty of these incredible constructions is sometimes lost after a while.

Luckily, you have us to remind you how magnificent the Albany's structures are!

Over the next few weeks, we'll be telling the stories of the most (and least) iconic buildings throughout the area in our "If Walls Could Talk" series. And we won't just be sharing information about who designed them or when they were built; we'll talk about the history of the building and what the walls would share if they could talk.

Curious about which structures we may be talking about? First on the docket is the building at 48 Hudson Ave known as the Van Ostrande-Radliff House, the oldest building in Albany. This building might be passed by without much thought by someone who may not know the history behind it.
