County Executive

From the Helderbergs to the shores of the mighty Hudson, Albany County is a unique blend of urban excitement and rural relaxation. It is the ideal place to live, work and raise a family.

A trip through our 19 municipalities will impress you. Our villages, towns and cities are beautiful and they play host to the finest in food, lodging, shopping and entertainment.

Whether you hike our trails, bike on our paths, visit our parks and museums or fish our streams and brooks, you will find it all here.

It doesn't matter if you are a resident or simply visiting for a day, I invite you to enjoy Albany County!
