Welcome to Albany (NY) History

Greetings and welcome to a new blog focusing on the long and varied history of Albany, New York. For the better part of a year, I've been keeping a blog of photos taken around this city - "from the random to the historic." And I've noticed that the historic posts have generated an excellent response from readers.

Don't worry...Albany (NY) Photo Daily isn't going away! But this new blog is a spin-off specifically focusing on Albany history. It will give me a chance to expand on some of the topics posted previously to the Photo Daily blog, as well as to post updates about historic-themed events, exhibits, and the like...and to occasionally highlight people and places from the surrounding area.

I also hope to interact more with people who share an interest in local history. I really enjoy the comments, e-mails, and other feedback I've been receiving so far and I hope to expand this project to include a message board and a web site to act as a central hub for all things relating to local history.

I'm always open to suggestions for topics, recommended events, links, books. Feel free to e-mail me at paula.lemire@yahoo.com

Oh, and, please, spread the word!


  1. I used to live in Lenox, Ma. years and years ago and spent much time in the Albany area. I saw the AIDS memorial quilt for the first time on Dec 1. there. I have many fond memories as well of all the historical sites. Good luck Paula, I really look forward to some great reading!

  2. Good luck with the new venture. I'm looking forward to it!
