Albany has a unique place in American history. Albany was a cradle of liberty during the American Revolution. (Did you know Alexander Hamilton walked these streets?) As the country grew, Albany became a site of important discovery. The telegraph, electric motor, and celluloid plastic were all pioneered here. Albany was also the point of origin for the first long distance airplane flight and the first passenger railroad.
