Looking for a historical brownstone? Try the city of Albany. How about a nice colonial on a half-acre of land? Consider the Town of Colonie, one of the top 10 safest towns in America, according to CQ Press’s survey. Or maybe a cottage in the Helderberg Mountains is the lifestyle you have in mind? Start your search in the towns of Berne or Westerlo. From urban to rural, Albany County is the place to go.
Downtown Albany is not only the home of the state legislature; it is an area full of locally operated shops, fine dining, and historical sites.

In the suburbs, there is ample shopping at Crossgates Mall, Stuyvesant Plaza, and Colonie Center Mall. There is also a delectable variety of fine restaurants. And for outdoor leisure, residents can enjoy a trip to one of the many parks or golfing ranges. Whatever lifestyle you’re looking for, Albany has it.
