Popular mall offers a variety of stores from Macy's to Sears to Christmas Tree Shops.

Reviewed By ejh33ny - Orlando, FL

I grew up going to Colonie Center and I like it much better than the larger mall down the street. It's much easier to get in and out and you can usually find good parking around Macy's. Also during Christmas the Santa is very good as my girls really enjoy going there to see him and lines aren't usually that bad.

USS Slater DE-766

During World War II 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-Boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and supplies. In the Pacific, they stood first in line to defend naval task forces from Kamikaze attacks. Today only one remains afloat in America. Step back in time. Return to 1945 aboard USS SLATER. See how Sailors worked, hear the sounds of a living ship, touch a piece of American history, and walk the decks where hundreds of Sailors have walked before.

New York State Capitol

The New York State Capitol has served as the seat of government for New York since the 1880's. Over 125 years old, the building is a marvel of late 19th-century architectural grandeur. Built by hand of solid masonry, it took 5 architects and 32 years to complete. Over the years meticulous restoration has been done to maintain and protect the Capitol for future generations of New Yorkers.

Reviewed By ProfessorOT - Hamilton, Canada

We went to the New York State Capitol for an advocacy event. The building was beautiful with its detailed architecture and stunning columns. A must is observing the Senate floor from the viewing gallery. Make sure that you have good walking shoes!

This is a hidden gem ! They keep this beautiful garden immaculate! The smells alone will keep you on a bench for the afternoon. People watching is great since many weddings stop for pictures.

Reviewed By TravelingLily2014 - Niskayuna, New York

I only discovered the Curtain Call Theater this year, and am so glad I did. I have now seen three productions and each was unique with superb acting, wonderful sets, lighting and costumes, and great direction. I am amazed that there is so much acting talent in this area.
