If you’re just beginning your search of the area, there are other points of interest you might appreciate being in the know on. First and foremost, Albany’s rich history comes alive in the city’s dynamic architecture, featuring everything from more modernist design to the unique blend of Gothic and Dutch design found in the Capital Plaza located at Broadway and State Street. If you’re interested in learning more, consider visiting the Albany Institute of Art and History or the State Capitol Museum.

Many of Albany’s 97,000 citizens work at or attend one of the five local universities, including Albany Law School, Albany Medical College, The College of Saint Rose, SUNY Albany, and Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Students. Perhaps it’s the reason you’re looking for apartments complexes in Albany in the first place!

While the universities offer a number of unique events throughout the year that are open to the public, another locale to keep your eye on is Washington Park. This historic park is one of the city’s truest gems – which, by the way, touts the annual New York State favorite, TulipFest, each spring – that serves as an exquisite backdrop for everything from picnicking to large, outdoor concerts. Predominantly surrounded by properties dating back to the late 19th century, if you’re looking for classic luxury, this may be the area best suited for you to find the perfect Albany apartment listing.
