Proudly Serving Albany, NY With Fence Sales and Installation
Over decades of visiting Albany to build and install new fences for local clients, we’ve come to see just how much the city has to offer visitors and residents alike, from the booming Tech Valley sector to the lasting beauty of Historic Washington Park.
At Northeastern Fences, we’re thankful that our work routinely brings us to Albany, and that we continue to get the chance to meet new clients there and get to know the city itself. If you live or work in Albany and have been searching for a trusted, family-owned and -operated company to install your new fencing, turn to Northeastern Fences! We’re based in Selkirk and have been serving clients throughout the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area since 1991. We’d love to help you with your fence project or projects!
Exploring New York’s Capital City
It seems like there’s always more to explore in Albany than we can ever get to, but here are a few of the things we love in New York’s Capital City:
The New York State Capitol
If you appreciate architecture or history, visiting the Capitol building is a must. The building itself is an awe-inspiring representation of the best of 19th century architecture and craftsmanship — and you can take a guided tour to get a close look and learn all about its history.
Getting to look closely at the cultural and natural history of New York can give every New Yorker a closer, deeper connection to our state.
There are a ton of places and opportunities to explore nature and wildlife in Upstate New York, but Albany boasts one of the most unique in the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. This particular habitat — inland pitch pine scrub oak barrens — can be found in fewer than 20 places around the world, so we’re lucky to get the chance to study it and the rare plants and animals that live there. From hiking and hunting to a mix of events (including concerts and film nights), there’s a lot to enjoy at the Preserve.
Henry Hudson Planetarium
Visiting Albany means a chance to go out into the stratosphere and help the kids in your life get passionate about space. The Henry Hudson Planetarium at the Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center in historic Quackenbush Square has lots of interactive programs that offer road maps to the cosmos, and although they’re particularly great for inspiring young folks, it’s hard not to appreciate them as an adult as well.
The Albany Institute of History & Art is a piece of history itself, as one of the oldest museums in the country founded in the late 1700s. It also holds treasures that trace back to our Upper Hudson Valley forebears – from paintings and photographs to furniture – and it offers world-class exhibitions.
Hudson River Cruises
Taking a ride on a cruise ship can give you a perch on which to take in a larger view of Albany and the Capital Region. You can also make an evening out of it, with a dinner cruise that lets you see the sights and enjoy local flavors.
The Tulip Festival is in part an annual opportunity to tip hats to Albany’s Dutch heritage — but it’s also just a really fun weekend, stocked with tens of thousands of beautiful blooming tulips, live music, art exhibits, and the crowning of the Tulip Queen among other happenings. For anyone living in the area, it’s a pretty wonderful excuse to head to Albany with the family to fully kick off spring.
We’re glad to head to Albany to help our trusted clients — give Northeastern Fences a call at (518) 767-9316 for all your fence needs!
