VISIT TO NYS CAPITOL TO SEE LEGISLATORS

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

The last time we were able to see legislators in person was before Covid.  In fact, we, The Business Council, were the last group to visit the capitol in March 2020.  The next week it shut down.  It has now reopened.

It is always great to see how your state government works (or doesn't work).   Today we went up on a bus meet with legislators.  Because our EVP was a state assembly representative we have access to the state assembly chamber which great to see.

The state capitol building has some amazing architecture.  Here is the map room.

Although the capitol resembles a giant French chateau, the three-acre, five-story granite building is actually a variety of styles including Romanesque and French Renaissance—the result of it taking 32 years (1867-1899) and five architects to complete.  It is a wonderful experience to be here.

I'm glad you were able to get up to the capitol, after two years of not being there. The ceiling in that last photo is really quite intricate!

The New York State capitol is a beautiful building... I was trying to remember when I was last there... it had to be sometime in the 1960's. I remember a beautiful building in a not so beautiful city. Haven't been to Albany since the late 1990's, so don't know if the city has been beautified since.

Nina - I have never been to Albany but Grant has presented an entirely new reason to rethink that decision as unlikely as it may be to occur.

That is a very nice-looking building, I could spend some time checking out the art that is on the ceiling.

Norma - but that could be indicative of how slowly Albany moves.

Kat -  so many things there are worth seeing.

Nina - of course you must remember some of the Rockefeller Era developments there like the SUNY building and the EGG.

Kat -  yes, just opened up but had to show vaccination.

Brian - there is lots more than that.

Grant, "Realtor Day At The Capital" is always very well attended here in CT, but I have not heard of one being scheduled here this year.

HI Grant- it's good that "we" can go to see "our" Capitol whether it's in our own state or DC.  Yours is beautiful. That Map Room is one I could spend a lot of time in.

Since our state has a part time legislature, our capital and legislative grounds are all abandon when not in session. That is why our legislator’s days are so important here Grant 🙂

Larry and Sheila - it is a site to behold.  You need to watch your step on those stairs, however.

Roy - I hope your week end is sunny and bright.

Paul - part time, now really that is not a bad idea.  Too much time equals too many stupid laws.

Hi Grant,

An awful lot has happened in the last 2 years.  That landscape in NY has changed.  I hope the visit was fruitful for you and the Council.  It sounds like a real work of art just to go see.

Our legislative branch, even though it is part time, has no common sense Grant Schneider
