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!

Statement by Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy on Veto of Local Law F
"The intention of Local Law F of 2012 is commendable. Thank you to Legislator Gary Domalewicz for his efforts in bringing this public service to our attention. Victims of crime need government to protect them at all levels. However, Local Law F in its present form is flawed. The public comments made during the public hearing I held on July 30, 2012 made that clear. I praise both Chairman Shawn Morse and Legislator Domalewicz for their vow to work with secondhand dealers to ensure that a future law would benefit crime victims and not place an undue burden on our business community."
