The Capital Region


Albany’s prime location, stable economy and quality of living are luring an increasingly diverse population to the Capital Region. Its history and surrounding attractions as well as its central location between New York, Boston, and Montreal, make it one of the most dynamic areas in the nation.


The 174-acre Siena College campus is located in the suburban community of Loudonville, just two miles north of the New York State capital. Nearly one million people live and work in the Capital Region, and more than 50,000 students live and learn in the region’s 14 colleges and universities.


If it is entertainment one seeks, you need not look far. The picturesque town of Saratoga Springs is located only 20 minutes north and is home to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, an amphitheatre which draws famous acts for anyone’s taste. In the summer, the serene town transforms into theMecca of thoroughbred racing, drawing over half a million fans annually to view its exciting races.


The Times Union Center, located in downtown Albany, hosts some of the country’s top entertainment acts, and doubles as the home of the area’s premier sporting events as well. The Albany Devils of the American Hockey League, the Albany Conquest of the Arena2 Football League and the Siena men’s basketball team all play home games in the arena.


The great outdoors can be enjoyed through skiing and hiking in the Adirondacks or boating on Lake George, Saratoga Lake or the Hudson and Mohawk rivers.


The Capital Region is a place of entertainment and excitement, of history and beauty.
