Two of my friends and I went on the Ghosts of Albany Walking Tour in early May. The group included four couples, our threesome and the guide. We met at the Albany Hilton and walked up State Street, through Capital Park behind the Capitol Building, over to the Education Building, back down Washington Ave, past Academy Park and City Hall, down pine and back over Lodge to the Hotel where we began the tour. It took about an hour and a half total, but we didn't cover more than a mile or so in distance. I won't get into too much detail, because I won't be able to do the tour justice, but we stopped at various locations while our guide educated us on not only the architecture, but also told us the stories of the "ghosts" that are rumored to be attached to those locations. Although I've lived in this neck of the woods most of my life, I was thrilled to learn all I did about some of the history of Albany. Our guide was informative and very entertaining and I would highly recommend this tour for anyone, whether you're a native of the area or just visiting.
