Albany is the best-kept secret in the Northeast United States. Situated on the eastern border of the state, Albany is located at the convergence of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, and is a short drive from the Adirondack, Berkshire and Heldeberg Mountains. It is the state capital and is host to abundant local culture including several museums and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Tanglewood - the summer home for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops - is only an hour away. The amenities of New York City, Boston and Montreal are also within a 2½ - 3½ hour drive. 

Sports and recreation abound in this thriving community that also boasts the region’s most desirable suburbs and schools. Emergency Physicians ski free at Windham Mountain, about 1 hour south of Albany. Respected colleges and universities including SUNY-Albany, Union College and RPI are also located in the Capital District area.  Albany Memorial is one of three hospitals in the area and is easily accessible from major highways. The beautiful new Albany International Airport is close by and offers direct connections to all major hubs.
