This cornerstone is part of the massive building at the corner of North Pearl and Columbia Streets. 79 North Pearl was designed by the architectural firm of Ogden & Wright (the same firm which designed the facade of the Kenmore Hotel just across the street) and originally housed the Albany Business College.
