Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Albany, New York

The City of Albany is the state capital city of New York. Albany is located on the west bank of the Hudson River, approximately equidistant from New York City and Boston. First chartered in 1686, Albany is the oldest continuously chartered U.S. city. With an estimated population of 93,539, Albany is a diverse modern city, and a vital transportation hub linking New York, Buffalo, Boston, and Montreal. Albany is also a center of higher education, with nearly two dozen public and private colleges and universities, including Albany Medical College and the State University of New York.

Today's Albany originated as a pair of Dutch fur trading posts, Fort Nassau and Fort Orange, in the early 17th century. The community that formed around Fort Orange was renamed Albany by the English in 1664. Albany's central location on the navigable Hudson River made it an early transportation nexus. Beginning in 1807 with a New York-Albany steamboat line, Albany exported products throughout the East and Great Lakes region, first by waterways, including the Erie Canal, and later by rail, highways, and air. Among the goods produced, lumber was especially prominent; by 1865, Albany had almost 4,000 active sawmills. Books, beer and iron wares were also key industries. The last of Albany’s breweries was the Beverwyck Brewery, which operated until 1972. In the 19th century, the New York Central Railroad and Delaware and Hudson Railroad both had headquarters in Albany. The city was also home to the first municipal airport, which opened in 1908. Albany was also known for its financial services. Banks such as KeyBank and Norstar Bank had their origins in Albany, and American Express was founded in 1850 as an express shipping service. Although manufacturing declined in the second half of the 20th century, Albany has kept a fairly stable economic base in government services, higher education and finance.
