Views Of Downtown Albany On A February Day

I had a day off of work and errands to run which involved driving to the City Clerk for a dog license renewal and to the Post Office to mail some bill payments. The Rensselaer Post Office is located in the Amtrak Station and from there, one can get a good view across the Hudson River to downtown Albany. Luckily, I had my camera with me:

And a closer cropped view shows the Empire State Plaza. That's the New York State Museum on the left, four office towers and "The Egg," a performance venue. That stone building on the lower right with the multiple spires is the New York State Capitol:

The Amtrak Station (and the Post Office). When I was in there, a bomb sniffing security dog was being led around and I almost asked if I could photograph him at work. But my camera was out in the car and its batteries were almost dead anyway. Maybe I'll get another opportunity some day:

This is a view of downtown Albany just north of the Empire State Plaza:

And later in the day, I drove east into rural Rensselaer County to pick up my completed income tax forms. On the way home, I saw this stunning view of the city of Albany down in the Hudson River Valley:
