VISITING OUR NEW YORK STATE CAPITAL

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

Each year I join other members of the Business Council of Westchester in visiting our NYS legislators and bring our business agenda.  This creates multiple opportunties even if you are not a political or legislative junkie.

This year is was rather quiet becuase the legislaters were in committe and in session to try to pass the New York Budget due April 1st.

Aside from that, a trip to our state capitol is a educational event and you can see history in the hall.

Here is the Inner stair case.

Capitol StairsHere is the Map Room

Map RoomAnd the hall of Governers...  Every governer's picture is here except one.  This is a picture of Governer Grover Cleveland who became US President.

Grover ClevelandNew York has many famous and well know men who were governers include four US Presidents.  They are Martin Van Buren, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Good morning Grant, Thank you for this post.  Although born and raised in NY, I had never seen the capital.  It's beautiful and reminds me of the architecture in NY that is so different from what is in south Florida.  Have a great day!

George - I would imagine.  I think I have seen that in Hartford.

Elyse -  There certainly is a big difference.  It has a Adirondack feel.

Gabe - actually that is rarely the case with NY being somewhat anti business.

Brian - right just like the frescoes in the European churches.

Debe - agreed.  That is an impressive room.

Hi Grant... it must be 20 years since I was in Albany. I had a nephew who lived there, but he and his wife relocated to the Boston area some years ago.
