Troy is a historic city in Upstate New York. Located on the eastern bank of the Hudson River, the city forms part of the “Capital District” for its proximity to the state capital of Albany. Its population remains around 50,000 people, according to recent census estimates. Troy is also the county seat of Rensselaer County.
Troy was a powerful city during the Industrial Revolution. Its steel and manufacturing operations boomed in the earlier parts of the 19th century, making it at one of New York’s wealthiest cities at the time. Troy is also home to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the oldest private engineering and technical university in the United States.
Today, Troy has a downtown area dotted with beautiful Victorian architecture. It is home to unique small businesses, such as our injury law firm, restaurants and performance venues. The city also provides easy access to New York City, Buffalo, Boston and Montreal via the nearby New York State Thruway and Taconic Parkway.[toc]
