Fact of the Day: Albany New York

Despite being one of the greatest known cities of the world, New York City is not the capital of New York state. That honor belongs to Albany, New York. Albany is roughly 22 times smaller in area than New York City, and has only a population of roughly 97,000 versus New York City's eight million.

    1. depends on what type of population is counted. Metro population counts are always off the charts.

  10. I'll bet if you asked 8,000,000 random people what the capitol of New York state is, they'd say NYC! How funny! Central City was a serious contender for the capitol of Colorado, but Denver won out!
