Fantastic photos of Albany. It's skyline, while small is impressive. I've always felt the Empre State Plaza was underated architectually. Did you have a chance to photograph from the Empire State Plaza itself? Albany is worth a visit with it's stunning views of the Hudson and Mountains from the plaza. It's downtown area with brownstones and historic buildings is interesting too.
Unfortunately Albany has really nothing other than government and universities to keep it alive otherwise it could be quite a jewel in the middle of the mountains.
