GOVERNMENTAL JUXTAPOSITION

The view from the top of the NY State Legislative Office Building is an unequivocal representation of New York’s rich history, diverse character, and resounding strength. The Legislative Office Building is located at the north end of Albany’s Empire State Plaza allowing for a 360˚ view of the city. From this perspective, one can see a clear delineation of the various architectural styles that have influenced the city’s development.
