Editorial Reviews


"Take this volume in hand; use it to explore the architectural treasures of Albany and to learn about the determination of those who built its vibrant, historory-packed neighborhoods. It is a book of delights for first-time visitors and surprises for lifelong residents." --Mario M. Cuomo, Governor of New York

"This comprehensive guide is a gem! The tours offer detailed descriptions of Albany's history through its wonderful, wonderful architecture. At last we have a definitive guide to Albany architecture to recommend to architects, historians, visitors, tourists, and Albanians." --Barbara J. Rodriguez, Hon. AIA Vice President, New York State Association of Architects/AIA

"Cities manifest pride in their accomplishments by means of their architecture, and Albany is no exception. By the early 19th century, as the capital of the most populous and most prosperous state in the Union, it quite rightly undertook to put on airs appropriate to its station. Led by the exceptionally gifted architect Philip Hooker and his colleagues, Albany assumed a grandeur rarely looked for in a small upstate city- indeed, it may be said to have put to shame cities many times its size. Astonishingly, this architectural guide to Albany is the first ever published. A fortunate circumstance- by dint of coming late upon this scene, these pioneer scholars provide all the more nourishing a gift to those of us who have long been impatiently awaiting instruction. With their ably written and ably photographed guide in hand, we are able to set forth upon a journey delectable in itself and likely to last us a lifetime." --Brendan Gill, Architecture Critic, The New Yorker Magazine
