The Capital District is a region in upstate New York that generally refers to the four counties surrounding Albany, the capital of the state: Albany County, Schenectady County, Rensselaer County, and Saratoga County. Other surrounding counties are sometimes included depending on the context, which is why the area is not specifically defined by actual borders; much like upstate New York itself, it is a region that is subjectively described. The Capital District is notable for many historical and industrial events. The Battle of Saratoga and the Albany Plan of Union are two historical events from before American independence which are now considered of national and sometimes also of international importance. Many multinational corporations were founded in the Capital District including American Express,[1] General Electric, American Locomotive Company,[2] and International Paper.[3] According to a report by the Capital District Regional Planning Commission released on 19 November 2008 the gross product of the area (defined as the Albany-Schenectady-Troy MSA) is $70.1 billion.[4] The Capital District was first settled by the Dutch in the early 1600s and came under British control in 1664. Albany has been the permanent capital of the state of New York since 1797.

northern portions of the Mid-Hudson Valley, usually Ulster and Dutchess counties or extreme southern sections of Essex County.[12]

Origin of the name
The term Capital District is commonly used to refer to the area due to its location surrounding the state capital. This is similar to other capital districts throughout the world, all of which are associated with a respective capital city. Other nicknames have included Tri-Cities and Tech Valley, while Capital Region is the most popular of the typical nicknames.[5] A Capital Police District was attempted by the state in the late 1860s comprising of land that is now the cities of Albany, Troy, Rensselaer, Watervliet, and Cohoes; along with what are now the towns of Colonie (including the villages of Colonie and Menands), Green Island, North Greenbush, and East Greenbush.[6] Later, Schenectady was added to this district as well.[7] The name of the police district was often abbreviated as "the capital district".[8] This is apparently the earliest instance of the name "capital district" in reference to the greater area around Albany. In the 1910s several organizations covering the area of Albany, Schenectady, Troy and inbetween used the name Capital District in their name, such as the Capital District Conference of Charities and Corrections in 1913,[9] the Capital District Life Underwriters Assocation also in 1913,[10] and the Capital District Recreation League.[11] The Capital District Recreation League, formed in 1916, proposed a Capital District Park (also referred to as the Six City Park) to be roughly 8 miles (13 km) from each of the six cities (Albany, Cohoes, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Troy, and Watervliet). The location proposed was the area of the Shaker settlement.[11] The park was never created though in 1928, the location was used for Albany County Airport for the same reason of its central location to those same cities.

College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at SUNY Albany, also headquarters of International Sematech. The Capital District has also been given the marketing moniker Tech Valley in recognition of the technology companies that have moved to the region, or are being wooed by governmental or educational institutions to relocate to the area. The term "Tech Valley" (originally Techneurial Valley) originated in 1998 by the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce.[13] The Chamber holds a registered trademark for the term. The 19-county region, which extends from the Canadian border south to Orange County,[14] is marketed by organizations such as the Tech Valley Chamber Coalition, the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commercee, and the Albany-based Center for Economic Growth.[15] The region has made great strides by landing a chip fabrication plant by GlobalFoundries (which is planned to be built in Malta, Saratoga County);[16] boasting the nation’s first and top nanotechnology college, College of Nanotechnology Science and Engineering at the University at Albany;[17] luring headquarters of SEMATECH’s manufacturing and research division- International Sematech, to the University at Albany from Austin, Texas;[18] and the engineering- and technology-centered university Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy and its corresponding Technology Park in North Greenbush, which is used as an incubator for start up companies.[19] In addition, the new Tech Valley High School opened in 2007 and educates local students in a project-based learning environment.[20]

Alternative names
Capital Region and Northeastern New York (NENY) are terms sometimes used to refer to the Capital District in combination with counties surrounding the area (usually those to the north, and to a lesser degree west of the four core counties of the District). Different definitions or uses of the names Capital District, Capital Region, and NENY may sometimes be used on regions that include Hamilton County and the extreme

History
First settlements
The first European settlers in the area were French fur traders; in 1540 they built a fort on Castle Island in Albany, but it was soon destroyed by the annual freshet.[21] Permanent European claims and settlement began in

Schuylerville in 1691; and Greenbush (present-day city of Rensselaer) would be settled in the 1620s. South of Albany, settlement occured quickly at first, but slowed as growth on the frontier pushed people north and west of Albany and left the southern reaches of the Capital District behind. Hudson, in Columbia County, was purchased from the natives in 1662 by Dutch settlers but didn’t see actual settlement and growth until the 1700s by New Englanders mainly from southeastern Massachussetts and Rhode Island. It was chartered as a city in 1785. The French and Indian War saw several major battles in the Capital District, including at the aforementioned forts. In the end, the French were defeated, freeing the land for further settlement to the west and north of Albany. During the American Revolution the area again saw fighting and Fort Ticonderoga experienced notable action. The Battle of Saratoga in the present-day town of Stillwater is considered the turning point of the war. In 1776, General Philip Schuyler built a small fleet of ships at Whitehall. They were used by Benedict Arnold in the Battle of Valcour Island. The event led to Whitehall’s modern-day claim to be the birthplace of the United States Navy. After the Revolution, settlements continued to proliferate west and north of the Albany area. North of Albany, along the river, settlements grew quickly: Waterford (oldest continuously incorporated village in the US, incorporated in 1794),[29] Troy (settled in 1787, chartered as a village 1801, city in 1816), Lansingburgh (a village in 1763, annexed to Troy in 1900), and Watervliet (settled in 1643 and incorporated as a village in 1836 as West Troy, city in 1897). West from Schenectady, land purchases in the 1750s led to settlements at Fonda and Fultonville in Montgomery County, but land purchases elsewhere, such as at Gloversville in Fulton County didn’t see settlement until the end of the 18th century when the Iroqouis threat had been eliminated by the Sullivan Expedition in 1779 in retaliation for the Cherry Valley Massacre in nearby Otsego County.

Capital District settlements in 1771 1609 when Henry Hudson sailed north up the Hudson River to the core of the Capital District in the name of the Dutch.[22] During the same year, Samuel Champlain explored south down Lake Champlain and Lake George into the northern areas of the Capital District in the name of France.[22] Conflict soon ensued between the French and Dutch for control of the fur trade and both would make alliances with different Native American tribes.[23] In 1664 the English would conquer the Dutch and rivalry with the French would continue.[24] The Dutch, and then the English, would focus on settlement and farming while the French incursion into this area would be limited to hunting for furs, trading with the natives, and building a few forts. In 1691 the mayor of Albany Pieter Schuyler built a fort at Ticonderoga where Lake George flows into Lake Champlain, directly threatening French claims. This fort was later abandoned but later replaced in the area with the Frenchbuilt Fort Carillon and the British-built Fort William Henry. From the mid 1600s to the late 1700s, settlers at Fort Orange (later Albany) bought land from the natives and started their own settlements further into the hinterland. Albany was granted the right to purchase 500 acres (2.0 km2) in "Schaahtecogue" (today Schaghticoke) by Governor Thomas Dongan in its City Charter,[25][26] in Rensselaer County; and 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) at "Tionnondoroge" (today Fort Hunter),[27][28] in Montgomery County. Arent van Curler founded Schenectady in 1662; Fort Saratoga would be built at present-day

Albany County in 1776 County as established by the Province of New York on November 1, 1683; it was one of the original 12 counties.[30] In 1772 formed from Albany County was Charlotte County, in the Capital District it included Washington and Warren counties.[31] Also in 1772 Tryon County was formed from Albany, Tryon was renamed Montgomery County in 1784.[31] In the Capital District it included Montgomery, Schoharie, and Fulton counties. Tryon encompassed the lands from five miles west of Schenectady to the western indeterminate boundary of the Province of New York.[32] What remained of Albany County in 1774 was the most populated county in the state with 42,921 persons.[30] In 1786 Columbia County would be formed.[31] In 1790 Albany County remained the most populated county in the state with 75,921 persons,[30] though in 1791 Rensselaer and Saratoga counties would be separated from Albany.[31] In 1795 Schoharie County would be formed from parts of Otsego County (which had been split off from Montgomery County in 1791) and Albany.[31] Greene County would be formed in 1800.[31] Schenectady County would be created in 1809 from Albany, in 1813 Warren County from Washington, and in 1838 Fulton County would be formed from Montgomery,[31] the last Capital District county to be formed.

Industrialization and transportation

Many geographical features led to early industrialization. Having many small creeks with waterfalls led to early adoption of the waterwheel while navigation south on the Hudson and the relatively flat Mohawk Valley to the west allowed for easy access to and from resources and markets to the south and to the west. In the late 1790s stage lines began to connect the various cities and villages in the area and then with the rest of the country in the early 1800s. Also the early 1800s saw the rise of turnpikes (Great Western Turnpike would be the first in 1799), Albany County* plank roads, and post roads.

Watervliet Arsenal in West Troy, one of the earliest large scale industrial complexes in the Capital District. In 1823 the Federal Dam would be built allowing for navigation north past Troy to Waterford and Cohoes. In 1825 the Erie Canal and Champlain Canal would built connecting the area with the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence leading to a large influx in industrialization and immigration. Shortly after the completion of the canals the Mohawk and Hudson Railroad Company (M&H) built the Albany and Schenectady Railroad between those two cities in 1831, this was the first railway in the state. Gloversville would be labeled the "headquarters of the glove and mitten industry" and would be the preeminent glove manufacturing and leather-working region in New York.[33] Cohoes would soon become known as the Spindle City for its large cotton mills, mostly thanks to Harmony Mills, the largest cotton mill complex in the world when it opened in 1872. Troy would become famous for its iron works thanks to the Burden Iron Works, though later Troy would earn the nickname of "Collar City" thanks to Cluett, Peabody & Co. which made Arrow brand shirts at the largest collar, cuff, and shirt factory in the world there in Troy (today the building is Hedley Park Place). In 1887 Thomas Edison moved his Edison Machine Works to Schenectady, and in 1892 Schenectady became the headquarters of the General Electric Company (GE).[34] Schenectady Locomotive Works along with seven other locomotive manufacturers would merge in 1901 and the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) would be formed and headquartered in Schenectady.[2] Due to the dominance of GE and ALCO in their respective industries Schenectady would gain the nicknames of Electric City and "The City that Lights and Hauls the World".

Capital District
interstates and other highways allowing for more commuting, lack of available suitable land within the urban centers, and the subsequent location of shopping centers following the people to the suburbs. The decline of manufacturing from the northeastern United States contributed to a general decline as well. Watervliet, Cohoes, and especially Troy lost their competitive edge when being at the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk rivers no longer meant better access to markets, waterfalls no longer made the cheapest power, and cheap labor in the southern and western parts of the nation became important to companies.[36] General Electric moved their headquarters out of Schenectady and to Connecticut in the mid-70s.[37] Within the Capital District manufacturing shifted to the suburbs as well, as the suburbs had large open spaces for the construction of larger warehouses, factories, and office parks while the cities were constrained in available land. Albany International, with their headquarters and factory straddling the Menands and Albany cityline built a new factory in 1987 in rural East Greenbush,[38] as did Garden Way, headquartered in Troy.[39] The region’s first tech park would be built in the 1980s in rural North Greenbush by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).[40] Not only was there a shift in population and manufacturing to the suburbs, there was also a shift in retail shopping as well, retail sales declined between 1972 and 1987 by 1 percent in the cities, while at the same time they increased 63 percent in the suburbs.[41] In 1957 Westgate Plaza became the first "suburban"-style shopping center in the area, it was and still is within the city-limits of Albany however, but then two years later in 1959 Stuyvesant Plaza was built outside Albany in the neighboring town of Guilderland.[42] In 1966 Colonie Center, the first enclosed shopping mall was built,[42] and as with all the other future successful enclosed malls in the area it was built close to, but outside city-limits. When built it drew shoppers from hundreds of miles from Albany.[42] Macy’s and Sears originally wanted to build in downtown Albany, but interference from Mayor Erastus Corning 2nd led to those stores choosing to move into Colonie Center instead.[43] Problems with Mayor Corning would also force the Albany Times Union newspaper in the 1970s to move out of

Urban decline and rise of the suburbs
Starting with the 1960 US census the core cities of the Capital District: Albany, Schenectady, and Troy; have posted declines in population in every census. Meanwhile the suburbs, and in particular Saratoga County, saw an influx in population. Saratoga County grew at the expense of Albany, Rensselaer, and Schenectady counties.[35] There were many causes to this, including the building of

Albany to the suburbs of Colonie as well. Five more enclosed malls were built in the next ten years, Mohawk Mall outside Schenectady, Northway Mall across from Colonie Center, Pyramid Mall outside Saratoga Springs, Aviation Mall outside Glens Falls, and Clifton Country Mall in Clifton Park.[42] In 1977 the first mall in the Capital District inside a city was built, the Amsterdam Mall in Amsterdam. This destroyed much of Amsterdam’s downtown.[44] The next year, Troy tried one of their own, the Uncle Sam Atrium.[42] In 1986 Cohoes would also try an urban mall. All three would fail and turn into office space.

in Schoharie, Greene, and western Albany counties, which includes the Heldeberg Escarpment in Albany County; and the Catskill Mountains in Greene County. Major lakes include the Great Sacandaga Lake in Saratoga and Fulton counties, Saratoga Lake in Saratoga County, and Lake George in Warren and Essex counties.

Location Climate
The Capital District has a humid continental climate, with cold, snowy winters, and hot, wet summers. Snowfall is significant, totaling about 63 inches annually, but with less accumulation than the lake-effect areas to the north and west, being far enough from Lake Ontario. The core of the region is however, is close enough to the coast to receive heavy snow from Nor’easters, and the region gets the bulk of its yearly snowfall from these types of storms. The region also occasionally receives Alberta clippers. Winters are often very cold with fluctuating conditions, temperatures often drop to below 0 °F (-18 °C) at night. Summers in the region can contain stretches of excessive heat and humidity, with temperatures above 90 °F (32 °C) and dew points near 70. Severe thunderstorms are common but tornadoes are rare.

Geography

Geologic features of northeastern United States, centered on the Capital District The Capital District’s most prominent geological features were formed by glaciers creating its major rivers and valleys through ancient mountain ranges. The Hudson River forms the Hudson Valley which is a northsouth running valley through the core of the Capital District while its tributary the Mohawk River forms the Mohawk Valley which runs west from Schenectady, the Schoharie Creek, a tributary of the Mohawk, forms the Schoharie Valley which runs through Schoharie County. Major mountain ranges are the Adirondack Mountains in the northwestern area and the Appalachian Mountains along the southern and eastern sections. The Appalachians include the Rensselaer Plateau in Rensselaer and southeastern Washington counties; the Taconic Mountains along the Washington, Rensselaer, and Columbia counties’ borders with Vermont, Massachussetts, and Connecticut; the Allegheny Plateau

Recreation
For recreation the Capital District has state and local parks, large shopping centers, sporting events, and amusement parks. The following state parks are in the Capital District: Cherry Plain, Max V. Shaul State Park, Saratoga Spa State Park, Grafton, Mine Kill, Schodack Island, Hudson River Islands, Moreau Lake, Thompson’s Lake, John Boyd Thacher State Park, and Peebles Island.[46] The various municipalities of the Capital District have established many parks, small and large, for the recreational enjoyment of the residents and visitors of the area. Central Park in the city of Schenectady has over 4,000 individual rose bushes of 300 and 400 different varieties in its rose garden at the Wright Avenue entrance.[47] Washington Park in Albany is home to many festivals, including the Tulip Fest and the Latin Fest. The Capital District has many enclosed malls that are regional malls (malls over

the Capital District, along with Hamilton County, New York, as well as Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and Bennington County, Vermont.[50] In total, there are 16 AM/MW stations, 30 full-power FM stations, 14 low-power FM translators, 8 full power analog TV stations, 5 low-power TV translators, and 8 full power digital TV (DTV) stations licensed to communities within 30 miles (48 km) of downtown Albany. In terms of broadcast media, Albany is part of Arbitron market #63 (radio), and Nielsen DMA #57 (television), and is a broadcast market with historical relevance. The pioneering influence of General Electric in Schenectady directly contributed to the area emerging as the birthplace of station-based television (WRGB) and one of the earliest FM broadcast stations (today’s WRVE), in addition to the first federally licensed radio station in upstate New York, WGY.

Capital District
currently no local affiliates for any of the Spanish-language domestic broadcast television networks, however the national service of Univision is provided via basic cable TV. Local cable TV operator Time-Warner Cable provides a 24-hour cable news channel, Capital News 9. Christian television networks TBN and 3ABN are available via low-power translator service to the immediate metro area. Unlike many television markets around the country, TV stations from neighboring markets cannot normally be received in the greater Albany area due to distance and terrain.

Radio
In 1947, this region was also home to the first independently-owned and operated stand-alone FM radio station in the United States, W47A. In the early 2000s, the greater Albany market had the distinction of having the highest concentration of FM broadcast stations east of the Mississippi River. The Capital District has three local News/Talk radio stations, WGY, WROW, and WGDJ on the AM (MW) band. All feature a mixture of locally oriented and nationally syndicated programming. There are two Sports formatted stations: WOFX, local affiliate for FOX Sports Radio; and WTMM, local affiliate for ESPN Radio. Both stations provide local sports and sports-talk programming as well as national content. The FM dial is primarily made up of commercial music-formatted stations similar to those in other cities around North America, the largest of which include Pop music station WFLY ’FLY-92’, Adult Contemporary WYJB ’B-95.5’, Adult Rock WRVE ’99.5 The River’, Soft music WKLI ’Magic 100.9’, Rock station WQBK-FM ’Q-103’, Classic Rock WPYX ’PYX-106’, and Country music WGNA ’Country 107.7’. Public radio broadcasting is available from two organisations: Northeast Public Radio serves the Capital Region via their flagship station WAMC-FM, and is the primary local affiliate for NPR network programming, and WMHT-FM is another local outlet that clears select NPR and PRI programming. WAMC focuses on News & Talk programming during the day, various music programs and BBC World Service programming in the evening, while WMHT-FM mainly provides Classical Music programming for most of their broadcast schedule. There are no radio stations in the Albany area that provide programming in languages other

Newspaper
The Albany Times Union is area’s primary daily newspaper; its headquarters moved to suburban Colonie from Albany in the 1970s after a dispute with then-Mayor Erastus Corning 2nd over land needed for expansion. More localized are the Daily Gazette, which focuses primarily on Schenectady; the Troy Record, which focuses on Troy; The PostStar, which focuses on Washingon, Warren, and northern Saratoga counties; The Saratogian, which focuses on Saratoga County; the Amsterdam Recorder for Montgomery and Fulton County; the Gloversville Leader-Herald for Fulton County; and the Hudson Register Star for Columbia and Greene counties. Metroland is the alternative newsweekly in the area, publishing each Thursday, while The Business Review is a business weekly published each Friday.

Television
WRGB has the distinction of being the very first affiliated station of the NBC Television Network. The Albany TV DMA is served by the following stations, providing programming from many of the English-language American broadcast television networks: WRGB-CBS, WTEN-ABC, WNYT-NBC, WXXA-FOX, WMHT-PBS,WCWN-CW, WNYA-My Network TV, and WYPX-ION. All of these services, with the exception of WNYA, also have companion digital television transmitters serving the region. There are

In 1991, Riley called it, "One of the greatest games in the history of Schenectady basketball."[52] Riley was also a football star at Linton (he would even be drafted by the Dallas Cowboys), and as a young boy played on the Schenectady Little League baseball team when in 1954 it won the Little League World Championship. Since 1988, the Siena College men’s basketball team (the Siena Saints) have appeared in five NCAA Tournaments (1989, 1999, 2002, 2008, and 2009)

The Times Union Center in Albany, the largest sporting and concert venue in the Capital District. Though the Capital District is not well-known for its sports teams it does have a rich history of professional teams and college athletics. The Troy Trojans were a Major League Baseball team in the National League for four seasons from 1879 to 1882. In 1883 the New York Gothams, later the New York and San Francisco Giants, took the Trojans place in the National League. Nearly half of the original Gotham players had been members of the Trojans. NBA head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers Phil Jackson won his first championship ring when he guided the Albany Patroons to the 1984 CBA championship. Three years later, the Patroons completed a 50-6 regular season, including winning all 28 of their home games; at that time, Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl was the Patroons’ head coach. Future NBA stars Mario Elie and Vincent Askew were part of that season’s squad. A third NBA head coach has roots in the Capital District as well, Pat Riley, most famous as the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, but also of the New York Knicks and Miami Heat. Riley played for Linton High School in Schenectady.[51] Linton High School’s 74-68 victory over New York City’s Power Memorial Academy on December 29, 1961, is remembered mostly for its two stars: Power Memorial’s Lew Alcindor (who later changed his name to Kareem

Saratoga County, Schenectady County, and Schoharie County makes up a large portion of the Capital District.[53] The AlbanySchenectady-Troy MSA was ranked the 56th most populous in the United States of America in the 2000 census, with a total population of 848,879.[54] Warren and Washington counties, in the northern reaches of the Capital District, make up the Glens Falls MSA; while Fulton County is the Gloversville Micropolitan Statistical Area (formed in 1990), Montgomery County the Amsterdam Micropolitan Stat. Area (formed in 1990 from Albany-Schenectady-Troy MSA), and Columbia County is the Hudson Micropolitan Stat. Area (formed in 1990). The AlbanySchenectady-Troy and Glens Falls MSA’s along with those Micropolitan Stat. Areas combine to form the Albany-Schenectady-Amsterdam Combined Statistical Area (A-S-A CSA).[55] The A-S-A CSA is the vast majority of the Capital District, leaving out only Greene County. It has a population of 1,118,095 according to the 2000 US census,[56] and is ranked 38 out of the 123 CSAs in the US,[57] and third largest in the state. Adding the population of Greene County in the 2000 census, 48,195, to the population of the A-S-A MSA there is 1,166,290 persons in the 11 counties of the Capital District.

Municipalities
The 11 counties of the Capital District are divided into 13 cities and 144 towns, with 62 villages that are inside one or more towns. One village, Green Island is coterminous with its town and share only one government institution. The municipalities in the Capital District range in size from villages with a few hundred residents to Albany (the largest city) with over 95,000 and Colonie (the largest town) with over 79,000.

State and congressional representation
The Capital District is split between several different districts for representation in the New York Legislature and the United States Congress. Chuck Schumer[58] (D) and Kirsten Gillibrand[59][60] (D) represent the state in the United States Senate. The area contains three congressional districts. The 20th Paul Tonko (21st) district makes up most of the south, east, and north of the Capital District, while much of

Capital District

Albany High School In Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady counties (the four core counties of the Capital District) there are 54 public school districts,[79] some of these districts cross county borders and cover areas in counties outside or are even based outside those counties. They range from the extremely small (North Greenbush Common School District with 20 students in 2006[80]) to the largest school district in the region (Shenendehowa Central School District with 9,745 in the end of the 2008 school year,[81] which overtook Schenectady Central School District[82]).

John M. McHugh (23rd) the rest is part of the 21st district. A small part of Fulton County is part of 23rd district. Currently the districts are represented by Scott Murphy (20th district),[61][62] Paul Tonko (21st district),[63] and John M. McHugh (23rd district).[64] The area is represented by nine Assembly districts and four Senate districts. For the Assembly the area is represented by Jack McEneny (D) of Albany (104th district);[65] George Amedore (R) of Rotterdam (105th district);[66] Ronald Canestrari (D) of Cohoes (106th district);[67][68] Timothy P. Gordon (I) of Delmar (108th district);[69] Robert Reilly (D) of Colonie (109th district);[70] James Tedisco (R) of Schenectady (110th district);[71] Tony Jordan (R), (112th district);[72] Teresa Sayward (R) of Willsboro (113th district);[73] and Peter Lopez (R) of Schoharie (127th district).[74] In the State Senate the area is represented by Roy McDonald (R) of Wilton (43rd district);[75] Hugh Farley (R) of Schenectady (44th district);[76] Betty Little (R) of Queensbury (45th district);[77] and Neil Breslin (D) of Albany (46th district).[78]

Colleges and universities
The colleges and universities of the Capital District have a long and distinguished heritage. Union College in Schenectady, the oldest in the area and founded in 1795, has had two US Presidents attend (Chester A. Arthur and Jimmy Carter).[83][84] Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy is the oldest continually-existing technical university in the English-speaking world.[85] Albany Law, Albany College of Pharmacy, Sage College of Albany, and Albany Medical Center (which consists of Albany Medical Center Hospital and the Albany Medical College) are independent of each other but all share one campus as part of the University Heights Association, in Albany.

Transportation
Albany has long been at the forefront of transportation technology from the days of turnpikes and plank roads to the Erie Canal, from the first passenger railroad in the state to the oldest municipal airport in the nation. Today, Interstates, Amtrak, and the Albany International Airport continue to make the Capital District a major crossroads of the Northeastern United States. The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the AlbanySchenectady-Troy Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Every metropolitan area in the United States with a population of over 50,000 must have a MPO in order to get any federal transportation funding. The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) uses an MPO to make decisions on what projects are most important to a metro area for immediate versus long term funding. The USDOT will not approve federal funds for transportation projects unless they are on an MPO’s list.[86] The Adirondack/Glens Falls Transportation Council (A/GFTC) is the MPO for
