Empire State Plaza Convention Center
Reviewed 8 January 2017

This underground passage between the State Capitol and Madison Avenue is accessible by foot, private and public transportation. The southern termination brings you to the NYS Museum and Library. It give you access to all of the buildings in the Downtown State Office campus. There are bank branches, food vendors, a dental office, a YMCA exercise facility and you can exercise by walking every day of the year regardless of the outside weather.

Do not miss this architectural gem of a Plaza where all the government buildings of New York State are located. The complex is approximately 100 acres and contains 10 beautiful buildings which reflect in the large pool at the center of the Plaza. It's a must stop for taking great pictures with the pool and the Egg building.

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.

This location was the perfect setting for an Irish Dancing Competition. The meeting rooms are very large, the Main room is huge. The vast expanse of space and seating made it easy for families to relax while waiting during the day. The building is very elegant with the highly polished floors, well marked venue rooms, and spacious washroom facilities. We were not able to travel up to visit "The Egg"' as it is closed outside of performances, but the convention space sits directly under "The Egg".
