One of the buildings that made an impression on me when my family and I visited Albany, NY was the Department of Education Building. It was a long, relatively low building that appeared to be help up high by a long row of the most ornate of Greek columns, the Corinthian Column.
Below is a closeup of the capital with its intricate carvings and design. Looking towards the background, you can see the relief on the ceiling, while above, you can see hints of the elaborate relief that decorate the cornice. (Please pardon me if I am not able to name the parts accurately. 🙂 )
Here is a full view of the shaft and the base of the columns. Don’t they look elegant?
I tried to take a photo of the facade of the building. However, parts of it, towards the right, is blocked by the massive (and equally ornate) State Capitol. I had to crop this photo drastically just to get a closer look at the building.
In case you are curious about the State Capitol, here it is, too.
The building on the far left is the Department of Education’s.
