I'm so glad I clicked on this. What a beautiful, little city. This was an excellent tour of this city's city center inventory.

This...



Is awsome, as is this Second Empire masterpiece...



BTW, you show a pic of the former city hall, but no photo of the new one. What does the current city hall look like?

The current city hall is temporarily in an uninteresting, rectangular office building that were formerly Verizon offices. They haven't built a new permanent one yet.

Troy has some great stuff downtown. I heartily support further posts from NY's Capitol District.

Thumbs up Smellin' of Troy

Some spectacular buildings. I've stopped there many a time travelling to NYC but only along the interstate, never into town itself. Looks like I missed out.

Whenever I'm up in the Capital Dist., I like to treat myself to hanging in Troy. It's a true old NY town. About ten yrs. ago, a friend of mine, who, if he had been hiring, he would have hired me, but it just wasn't in the cards. If it had been, I would have looked for an apt. in S. Troy. Little Italy is/was in that neighborhood.

Wonderful tour. I've only been to Troy a couple of times, but was impressed with its urban fabric and great old buildings. The last time I visited I drove from the south end to the north on Rt. 4, great way to see the city.
Thanks for the pics and welcome to SSP.

I hate to sound repetitive, but Troy has an amazing collection of older buildings--one after another. WOW!
