  Albany is the historic capital city of New York state, located on the banks of the Hudson River. It is the oldest surviving European settlement from the original Thirteen Colonies. The area was given different names by the various native tribes to the area. The Mohegans called it Pem-po-tu-wuth-ut, which means "place of the council fire" and the Iroqouis called it Sche-negh-ta-da, meaing "through the pine woods". When the land was taken by the English in 1664, the name was changed to Albany, in honor of the Duke of York and Albany, who later became James II of England and James VII of Scotland.

Perforated toilet paper was invented in Albany.
