University at Albany (State U. of NY)

My friend Joe Brennan, with whom I go back 20+ years to when we were both at a research institute in Buffalo, New York, recently started a new job at the other end of the Empire State, namely at the University at Albany. Within the SUNY system, Albany is one of four research-intensive "university centers" (along with Binghamton, Buffalo, and Stony Brook). Joe posted some Albany photos on Facebook and kindly has allowed me to reprint them here.

Albany has multiple campuses, including the large Uptown campus and small Downtown campus. The Uptown campus is relatively new, having been around for approximately 50 years. A sign of the modern architecture is the administration building, University Hall.

The Downtown campus includes Dewey Library, shown below from the outside and inside.
