Visit Albany’s historic Mansion Neighborhood, home of the New York State Governor’s Mansion. Explore our narrow streets of charming rowhouses from the 1800s to the 1900s, visit our many fine restaurants and the recently-restored historic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Located just south of downtown Albany, the Mansion Neighborhood is a stones throw from the NYS Museum, and the Empire State Plaza, with its world-class collection of contemporary art.
