The View From The Plaza
Looking slightly northeast from the main platform of the Empire State Plaza at part of downtown Albany. The large building with the red roof is the Office of the New York State Comptroller (the lobby has glass cases displaying some small items uncovered by archaeologists during the building's construction). The decaying brick building in front of the Comptroller's building is part of the old Wellington Hotel complex and the glass-enclosed archway (crossing part of Eagle Street here) is the walkway connection the Plaza with the Times Union Center.
