Shopping is terrific in Albany. We have a couple of very big malls; one very popular mall is called Stivisit Plaza. It is an open-air mall and it has a lot of up scale shops. It has been around for a long time and has several restaurants in addition to stores like Talbot's and Cold Water Creek and some local independent stores.


There is a Talbot's outlet off of Wolf Road, otherwise the outlets are up in Lake George or Massachusetts, both of which are just about an hour drive from Albany.




A lot of local independent stores are located on Lark Street. It is a Bohemian section of Albany, it's what sometimes we call our Greenwich Village. It has lovely restaurants, unique shops, and is in the downtown area. A lot of the bus tourists really like stopping there

The other big malls are Crossgate Mall, which is huge, and Colony Center.
