This neighborhood is one of a kind! Center Square is a wonderful community, with endless amounts of restaurants, events, and hidden-garden tours. There are several outstanding organizations to recognize such as the Center Square Association and Historic Albany Foundation which allows you to be able to learn about the beautiful history of the city. You can also stop by the Albany Public Library, the Albany Institute of History & Art, and the New York State Museum to learn more.
There are several perks to living so close to the Empire State Plaza. Some fan favorites are concerts at The Egg, ice skating in the winter, a year-round farmer’s market, the Tulip Festival, and many others. If you enjoy walking, your steps away from Washington Park and the Hudson River which are perfect for biking and running.
Restaurant suggestions are endless, but here are a few favorites: Pint-Sized, Bombers Burrito Bar, Stacks Espresso Bar, Iron Gate Cafe, The City Beer Hall, and Berben & Wolff’s. If you like to stay in and cook you’re about a 2-minute walk from the nearest Market 32 for all your grocery needs. We hope you’re able to call this beautiful city of Albany your home.
