Accidents & Injuries in Albany and the Capital District
Albany is the Capital of the State of New York and the seat of Albany County. Government buildings and state agency offices comprise the renowned Empire State Plaza. Historic downtown Albany centers around State and Pearl Streets. Albany is about 150 miles north of New York City. The population of the City of Albany is about 100,000. The Albany Metro-Area consists of Albany, Schenectady and Troy, called the Capital District. Schenectady is the county seat of Schenectady County. Its population is about 67,000. Troy is the seat of Rensselaer County. Its population is about 51,000.
The Capital District is situated at major crossroads of the Northeastern United States. The east-west Interstate 90 (I-90) and north-south Interstate 87 (I-87) meet at Exit 24 of the Thomas E. Dewey New York State Thruway. I-87 parallels US Route 9W south of Albany and US Route 9 north and I-90 parallels New York State Route 5 west from Albany. The Thomas E. Dewey New York State Thruway carries I-90 west from Exit 24 at Albany and I-87 south. North of Albany I-87 is called the Adirondack Northway. East of Albany I-90 meets up with the Berkshire Spur of the Thruway in Columbia County, where it joins the Spur to the Massachusetts border. Both I-90 and I-87 have three-digit Interstate spurs, Interstate 787 (I-787) and Interstate 890 (I-890). I-787 connects with the Thruway (I-87) at Exit 23 and travels north connecting Albany with Watervliet, Cohoes and Troy. I-787 parallels New York State Route 32 to Saratoga County. I-890 connects to downtown Schenectady. Interstate 88 starts at the Thruway (I-90) in Schenectady County and travels through Schoharie County to the Southern tier of New York and the City of Binghamton.
