Lack of signs can get you lost at the convention center and occasionally parking can be a problem as well.

The outside of these buildings are beautiful and the grounds are pristine and well maintained. The unique sculptures are lovely and fun to see.

The Convention Center is a clean well kept place to hold an event. They keep the bathrooms clean and when there are close to 2000 people at an event, clean bathrooms are really important.

Albany is the capital of New York State. It is a mixture of old and new buildings. The plaza is a mix of old and new buildings. Quite peaceful just to walk around. The "egg" is totally made of concrete.
